|Adios Bonzai (20/03/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
Bonzai records banquerouted. Some say it's sad ... I personnally don't. That big label promoted the worst commercial electronic pweetpweet sounds from 92 to 98 and then slowly came down by popular demand. They did put the shame on us for years because they produced that bad stuff (as well as Dance Opera). Over about ten years of productions, only three records remain outstanding and valuable: the Stockhauzen release by Liza'n Eliaz and the two BWP records (white label). The rest? Just forget it. There's so many good electronic labels today that no one will really regret it. [this is of course a very personnal opinion, but since many shady people pretend to be sad for them, I dare to say I'm not]. The reason of their banqueroute is not economical or due to the mp3, but well due to the poor quality of their music since the beginning. They made money with their moneymusic... why would they complain?

|Techno Nation New Location! Warning! (05/03/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas Noctis)|
Techno Nation moved location by pressure of the Mayor of Zaventem, so they go to Groenendael Hippodrome where youth and music are far more welcome. All Line-Up remains as it was, with DJ Rush, Marco Bailey, Steve Rachmad (Nl), Claude Young (Detroit), Terrence Fixmer, Marco Remus, Zzino, Redhead, Deetron, Tom Hades, Tomaz, TC Brain, David Pereira. Hippodrome of Groenendael stands on the Brussels ring, between Uccle/Ukkel and Waterloo.
|Alka at Adrienne! (05/03/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas Marcus)|
Alka Selzer was a party concept back in the 80's. It has re-emerged timidly since last year. Every first friday of the month at the Bodega. Since a few weeks, the Alka has moved in the Adrienne restaurant. This restaurant has been closed for years now due to the controversial Heron City project in spite of the will of the Toison d'Or neighbourhood. Great opportunity for the Alka to seize as this won't last long : the building will definitely be destroyed within 6 months. I'm deeply advising you to go there as soon as possible as the audience isn't completely jet set yet (remember we are in the Toison D'or/Guldenvlies). The music is quite commercial (kind of Jeux d'Hiver) but very acceptable (great dj, I don't know his name, the one who rides motorbikes and has excellent mixing skills).
|no House-Torhout & Leaf 2003??? (03/03/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
Indeed, Sandra from Kozzmozz recently announced in the Limburgse press that there would be no House-Torhout Festival this year because of too much competition. Well, it's true that I Love Techno *open air version* will take place in Lommel on 19th of July, and that's to count with all the other electronic Festivals such as Dance Valley (Amsterdam, 1st saturday of August), Alive (St Vith, August too), probably Leaf (Liège), and of course all the bigger festival that have many electronic artists in their line-up, such as Dour, Werchter, Beach Rock, Pukkelpop, etc etc But is it deeply the only reason to drop down that festival? Shouldn't they try a smaller version some years, with local deejays and refined artists? Or a more specialized different style every year? That way could save one of the greatest festival concepts in our country. Well... it's just an idea. I myself hope that they'll will do it anyway.
|Dali's bar opens again! (02/03/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
As you now all know, there was a burnout at Dali's... and it destroyed everything on the groundfloor, including furnitures (chairs, artworks, bar, ...) and a whole record box of one of the resident deejays. It happened in the day, so there has been no physical victims, but the damage was huge. Now good news: Dali's is back since this week-end with his basement floor. So, now if you go to the 35 Petite rue des Bouchers (1000 Brussels), you'll have fun AND it helps them to recover their rank as soon as possible. Go go go Steph X!
|4 Days: 30th edition of Rock Werchter (02/03/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)|

|Noctis new version is coming soon! (25/02/2003 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
It's years that I promised it to you, but I never found the budget or the time to set it up... now it's about to come! Four webwizards are hardly working with me on that completely new version since 5 months now. I really hope you'll like it. There was too many black color and it was too dark? Ok, there will be lots of colors. There was not enough ways to participate? Ok, you'll be free to add your news. That was not easy to browse? We fixed that with a new surf comfort. But the spirit and the passion remain the same. I'll keep it updated as I always did, but many users will update it too... and that's the plus. A date of publishing? The spring! I don't know yet if it will be exactly the 21st of March, but then a few days after. So, that's the word to spread: it's coming!
