Live at Resonance festival

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

From Friday 27 ’till Sunday 29, Ghent-Belgium is the place to be.  The good people from Resonance are hosting an interesting festival with a mixed style line-up.

On Friday night, i’ll have the privilege to share stage with Alva Noto and Machinefabriek.  I’ll be presenting my new album “Lichtung”, soon to be released on Line.

On Saturday night, the main focus is on deep club music with Efdemin, Claro Intelecto, Move D & Benjamin Brunn and my good friend and partner in crime Peter Van Hoesen.

On Sunday night, the weekend ends in style with the (for Belgium) unique concert of Deepchord presents Echospace and Mokira, aka Andreas Tilliander.

In other words, a mighty 3 day event you simply shouldn’t miss!

All info can be found on the Resonance website.


Sendai’s first

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

A few weeks ago, the first Sendai release “Sustaining the Chain” saw the light of day.

Here’s all the info you need, thanks to Peter for writing the info below.

The first release for 2009 on Time To Express:

Sendai: Sustaining The Chain (T2X04)

“This release marks the debut of Brussels’ duo Sendai.
Longtime friends Yves De Mey (aka Eavesdropper) and Peter Van Hoesen team up and deliver the fourth installment on Time To Express.

The original version of Sustaining The Chain provides a glimpse into the duo’s shared interest in pure, energetic techno. After a three minute build-up the track arrives at the core of its being: a growling, deep bassline, ever expanding and evolving, sustained by swirling effects and sparse percussion. This is techno stripped down to its essential elements, while deploying the full impact needed to move a crowd during peak time.

On remix duty, Peter Van Hoesen carefully selects specific percussive elements of the original and warps them into a hypnotic, deep and friendly groove. There is a definite cinematic approach applied to this remix – think widescreen future dub and you’re close. A track for the 8 am crowd.”
