14 February 2002 - 3 weeks off for Who's
After three weeks of work on the building, the sound and the inner-security system of the club, Who's Who's Land is back on friday the 15th of February with the Girly Party. Coming up early in March is a party with Kevin Saunderson, the charismatic symbol of the birth of Techno in Detroit, back in 1987. So, make it a gossip: Who's is back for more! More! More!
@ 17 rue du Poinçon / Priemstraat - 1000 Brussels

14 February 2002 - Dance Valley on a severe diet
Dance Valley is that 80.000 ppl electronic-festival near Amsterdam, shaking the summers since 1995 with the biggest names of the clubbing scene. But it seems the crowd has been too big last time. Or is it related to a political decision of the city? Whatever. Apparently, the capacity of the next Dance Valley Festival will be 40.000 party people. Estimated 150,000 people trying to get their hands on 40,000 tickets, got to be fast. Although the capacity is less than half the capacity of last year, they will not make the festival smaller, and it will stay at Spaarnwoude in Velsen. So, the area will be as big as in 2001, and there will be the same amount of arenas and deejays. As usual they'll broadcast Dance Valley live on tv, internet and radio, so if you cannot be there there will be enough to follow the event. [Sorry, no pictures at all here... ask them why]

10 February 2002 - After Arlequin, Amnezia, Studio Gallery, ...
A new club is about to open its doors, at level -1 of Louise/Louiza shopping gallery in Brussels. It's been years since anything happened there. In the early 80's it was a straight club named Arlequin. Then it turned on New Beat and was one of the main clubs in Brussels for a year or two. The 90's came and the hard times too, apparently, because the public didn't follow the change when the club tried to restart with fashion events and UK House deejays (that was the Studio Gallery). Not even when the club tried another fuzz when blocking all the Louise avenue for a false 50's movie shooting, with 50's cars and environment... the new name was NYC Club, and it was in 1992. Nothing happened since then, except projects of casinos... but it has never been done. So now, a team of professional organisers wants to launch that hall again... we're curious of what it will be. The only thing we know is the name of one of the future managers: Jose-Luis of the Strong club.

10 February 2002 - Food Main Course
When Benjamin joins Frank, the Food director... it takes the road of Wieze! Once upon a time in the 90's, there was the biggest Belgian party organisation named Rave Explosion. And Rave Explosion took place in the Oktoberhallen of Wieze. With 6000 people and Jeff Mills, Laurent Garnier, Blake Baxter, Source, etc... that was the first enormous Techno event ever done in our country. After 9 years of silence, Food Main Course re-opens the gates of Oktoberhallen for one night. Todd Terry (USA), Dave Clarke (UK), Jeff Mills (USA), Kenny Glasgow, Derrick Carter, Green Velvet, Trish, Raoul, Geoffroy and more... the night will be rich. Presales 22 €, or 28,5 € at the door.

10 February 2002 - Strong is still alive
The long story of the Strong gay club took its start at L'Envers d'Anvers 'round 1994. Jose-Luis and Jos were the souls of that gay male party serie, and it was driving a pretty huge crowd on the floor of the Cafe Local, back then. Later, they moved to Brussels to create the Strong sundays at Who's Who's Land with a good response from the public, but not exactly a success. When Who's Who's closed its doors in 98, the Strong club moved to Residence Palace (near Schuman square) where it still shakes nowadays, on special saturdays. In the meantime, Strong was also a real club for a year, on 2 levels of the St Kristoffelstraat... but it stopped at the end of year 2000. Spending more and more time in Ibiza, Jose-Luis and Jos finally took an agreement with the Pacha club to create the Pacha Brussels. That experience also took an end after a year of frenetic gossips ... and huge parties. So, what's up now? The Strong itself takes place in Residence Palace almost once a month, in a fantastic classious ballroom with mirrors and precious deco, and with the mixes of Jos and Isabel. And the Cabaret (the soft gay pop sundays of Jose-Luis & Jos) rules the sundays of Hippodrome de Boitsfort, 51 chée de la Hulpe - 1180 Brussels.

01 August 2001 - "Boccaccio" name ok for reference
You sure know the story about that historical club in Destelbergen (Gent) that was the birthplace of the House and Techno wave in Belgium since 1987 and that has been closed by neighbourhood and destelbergense authorities in 1992. In 1995, the name (only the name) has been sold to another club... the Pharao/Dreamland which is "Boccaccio/Dreamland" since then. The new Boccaccio did only pay for it, and there's nothing in common between the old and the new one. Ok... well... but the deejays of the old true Boccaccio were still using the name as a reference. (Eric Beysens [Boccaccio 1987-92], Olivier Pieters [Boccaccio 1987-92], etc...). So, on some posters and flyers of some parties the name of Boccaccio was sometimes mentionned. It seems that the boss of the new Bocca did not like it and tried to get the organisers of a Beach Party in Lummen to the Court of Hasselt. And that has been done... but the club did loose. The judge told that it is frequent that the deejays mention some clubs after their name (just to identify themselves) and that doesn't mean that the mentionned club is giving acknowledgement or is part of the organisation.
What does that mean? That Eric Beysens and Olivier Pieters, but also all other deejays in the country still may use their past as references for the future. Thanks to the court of Hasselt for that legitimated freedom.

01 August 2001 - Killing ecstasy in Belgium? Yes!
Caution! We use to say no to chemical drugs simply because it hurts you, and it kills as well as alcohol on the roads. But this time it is different: there is killing "ecstasy" since a few weeks in our country. Sold as normal xtc (same price, same look), it is in fact PMA and PMMA ... that are EXTREMELY dangerous. 9 kids recently died in USA because of those pills, and a few people in Belgium were transported in hospitals because of it. Please tell it around... NO it is not a love drug, and YES there are killing pills running in our country, this is not a joke. Home test kits: ingredient45.com

Same line-ups, same security as before at Fool Moon... no doubt, Food is a phoenix! House, House and always more House!

30 July 2001 - Benjamin leaves the Fuse
Since 1996 Benjamin was the artistic director of the Fuse club. At the beginning he was more in charge of the looking (deco, flyers), but after a year he has been in charge of the deejay selection and of the whole Fuse machine, in complete collaboration with Thierry Coppens the owner of the club. After 6 months of Trance (a last try by the previous manager & creator of the club, Peter), Benjamin tried to find back the original Fuse identity, and he succeded! He turned it back on Techno, inviting the greatest names for 5 years and keeping a very high level of musical quality (they even tried a Dru'mn Bass room for 6 monthes in 1996). Besides he did also bring plenty of concepts to the Fuse and changed its reputation from local to international, taking residents such as Carl Craig, Dave Clarke, etc... Now Benjamin quits for some other roads. But nothing bitter in this. No stress, no fool, no problems... it seems it was just the right moment for both sides to stop the partnership. Fuse goes on, Benjamin goes on... and everything's fine. Sounds too sweet to be true? Maybe, but you had to know it :)

21 July 2001 - Love Parade is back in Berlin
Love Parade launched for its 13th edition. But this year seemed to have a bitter taste since there was a lot of critics about edition 2000. First, City of Berlin forced Love Parade to change it's date (usually 12th of July), and told them they had to pay for any problem caused by the Parade (previous years it was considered as a political event, so they had nothing to pay... but now it's considered as a commercial event, so rules are changing). Globally, Love Parade expected for a 500.000 ppl meeting (3 times less than previous year). But Dr Motte (the Love Parade creator) still trusts the people and he was right because this was a fantastic honnest and great gathering with lot more than expected amount! (how many? I don't know, but it was really big).

14 May 2001 - Carl Craig fired from DEMF?? Smells like onspiracy...
Since about 15 years, all House and Techno artists from Chicago and Detroit are stars in Europe, but almost unknown in their own country. Last year, when first Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF) turned out to be the USA largest free electronic music festival to date, it seemed that recognition for American dance music had finally arrived at its birthplace. Cofounded by techno producer and Planet E label owner Carl Craig, the event attracted more than one million visitors (!!) and had plenty of legendary artists in its line-up including Derrick May, Stacey Pullen, and Richie Hawtin.
But only two weeks before the second festival (26 & 28 May 2001), the festival's producer, Carol Marvin of Pop Media Culture organisation, unexpectedly fired Craig from his role as creative director. By doing this, she has placed the future and credibility of the event in serious jeopardy. All of the major players in the Detroit music community spoke out against her actions in the Detroit press and have made one thing clear: the DEMF without Craig is no festival at all. Without his work as creative director, securing a high-quality lineup would never have been possible. To say Carol Marvin did shot herself in the foot is an understatement. She actually fired Craig because he did not turn artists contracts in on time, but Carl immediately denied and explained clearly to the US press that he "was never given any city deadlines [...]. We had all the [outstanding] contracts come in the day that the first article came out. This was all done recklessly on her part to destroy my reputation [...]." Craig said that being fired came as a shock. His friend and partner in the history of techno, Derrick May said that he is saddened by Craig's dismissal: "Carl was trying to introduce Detroit to the world. Things with Carol should never have gotten to this level." Jonah Sharp also thinks so: "Without him what would it be? It's so much him. Where he's at with his label Planet E and his music, he's the only sort of person who could make it entertaining and make it work with a very eclectic array of underground and global talent."
Lines quoted from San Francisco Bay Guardian & Detroit News
Since then, Carl Craig has been given his seat back at DEMF. Things finally turned right.

25 April 2001 - Drug on wheel, results
As an answer to a written question of senator Van Quickenborne, the Minister of Justice Marc Verwilghen declared that during year 2000 there had been 356 car drivers controlled positive for use of drug at the wheel. 128 of these drivers were positive with ecstasy, 127 with cannabis, 58 with amphetamines, 39 with cocaine and 4 with heroin, specified the minister. About fifty actions of control of this kind were organized in Belgium in year 2000. 443 reports were drawn up for "use of drug at the wheel". The average age of the charged conductors was in 90% of the cases between 18 and 25 years. 63 of the charged people were for the use of 2 substances, 20 for 3 substances and 2 for 4 substances (this last one was to be in a wikkid bad state... ouch!).
We repeat it again in our pages: DON'T BE STONE ON WHEEL! Not for Justice, but for you and your friends

24 April 2001 - Max refused to spin
Last wednesday was a party at Who's Who's Land (but organised by another management) featuring Bob Sinclar, Max (Fun Radio, Paris), Michel Traxx etc... All seemed to be ok... Some deejays were playing in the big hall (the theatre) and other deejays in the lounge (a very nice smaller hall on basement floor). Max was announced in the lounge on the flyers (everyone saw it), but when he arrived at 3am and saw that he wasn't playing along Bob Sinclar in the largest hall, Max refused to play and left the place back to Paris. Max said in his show that he came with Techno music and not with Lounge music so that couldn't fit with the place, and that it was disrespectful for his public. The organisers answered that he was announced in the Lounge since months, and that it was told in the starting deal. Who lies? Who cares... really? But two points are:
- is a deejay not able to face all the situations?
- is Max not payed enough to play for the people who came at the party?

22 April 2001 - Racism at the door? 2 years!
A judge of the Antwerps Court did something that will be a very hard but useful lesson for some clubs: 2 years of jail (18 monthes closed) for a club doormen because he refused admission to a customer with a "supposed foreign nationality". Bad luck, that customer was belgian ... and policeman. The doormen now has 400.000 bef to pay and 18 monthes between the walls of his conciousness, thinkin about the law against racism and xenophoby. This will very probably make all club security squads thinking about a new way to manage their admission policies, in a better way.
---------------------------
A letter from a reader in Le Soir was telling about a Noctis ticket winner that has been refused at the door of the club he won the ticket for. That letter told that the doorman refusal was only explainable because of the colour of his skin. Noctis has to say that we VERY OFTEN offer tickets to VERY multiple kind of people, including plenty of Bart, Katrien, Fouad, Marc, Desiree, Niko, Abdeslam, Antonio, Denis, Paulo, Layla, Karim, Karol, Dominique, ... etc... and for all clubs. So we don't do any selection and this seems to be the first and only problem we had. So, from our point of view it cannot come from any problem of racism in the clubs and parties we're working with.
But maybe is it good to repeat here that the Noctis free tickets allow to get in for free, but the clubs still keep the right to refuse admission.

16 April 2001 - Food stops at Fool Moon... definitely?
Yes you read well, Food will stop its weekly residency at Fool Moon definitely. The last party will shake on the 30th of June with the residents of the Fool Moon: Geoffroy, Raoul (aka Swirl People), Régis (News), Ed & Kim and Groove Merchant (Plastiks). Why? Well... Fool Moon will *probably* stop its activities, but that's not sure yet. The point is now: is Food looking for a new place in Brussels? The answer is YES. But we're not yet allowed to tell you where because nothing has been signed yet... keep an eye here from time to time this summer :). One thing you can trust: Food is not stopping, look on 2nd of June at Silo with Stacey Pullen and for its 5th anniversary with DJ Sneak.

15 April 2001 - Planet E label - the 10 Years Party
Created and build by Carl Craig, the Planet E recording label rules the wave Techno scene in Detroit since the early nineties. You all know 69, or Paperclip People... but it's only a small facet of what Planet E is. Carl Craig and its Innerzone Orchestra of course, but also Common Factor, Recloose, MoodyMan, and so so much more who have been producing legendary tracks there. It's now 10 years that the Craig's E spreads its sound all over the Planet, so, for that celebration there's two things:
- "All Access", the compilation. Only available in Detroit USA shops, or on their website from May the 26th. A collection of some of the greatest Detroit classics, byt DEMF and Carl Craig.
- "All Access", the party at 1703 Cass Ave. at Bagley, Detroit - Michigan on May the 27th With (sit down): Carl Craig DEMF, Mike Clark (Planet E, Detroit), Kirk Degiorgio (Ubiquity, Planet E, UK), Laurent Garnier (himself), GilbR' (Versatile, Chateau Flight, Fr), Hannah (Planet E), Ibex (Planet E), Orin Walters (NeonPhusion, UK), Recloose (Planet E) + a special Planet E artist performance.
Detroit? Woah... no problem. 9 hours flight straight from Zaventem. Bet you won't... ok... so here's the link for the Planet E website. : )

29 January 2001 - Kozzmozz starts Studiotek
We all already know the Kozzmozz Techno parties that started back in the mid 90's on a boat in Gent for wikkid electronic nights. Then it quietly grew up until it is now the biggest competitor to events such as I Love Techno. But it never felt the wire with its genuine public, so the management still work by passion and with their old friends (Kozz, T-Quest, ...). In 1999 they started the E-scape parties and it was a big success, but Kozzmozz still had its frontplace and reached the top of the Techno scene. Now that organisation is creating a new monthly club in the hall where Kozzmozz usually happends: the Kuipke. Landing: saturday 3rd of february 2001! There's tickets in the agenda... don't loose the wire!

27 January 2001 - no reopening for Tour & Taxi club
Now it's official, the team that is working over the Music City project (12.000 ppl concerthall in Brussels) just purchased the building where was the Tour & Taxi club. So there won't be any T&T parties anymore at 5 Picard street (1000 Brussels). Some say there will be a showcase hall, offices and recording studios. Is it the first small step on the road to the full Music City? Seems not.
