Belgium’s complex weave of war and geography has provided the ideal conditions for musical open-mindedness. It’s this historical flexibility that has fostered electronic body music, Belgian new beat, and rave techno—not to mention arguably the most vital avant-garde fashion in the world.
According to most music sites the top 10 tracks that helped define the sound of "rave" are :
1. Quadrophonia - Quadrophonia
2. T99 - Anasthasia
3. Pleasure Game - Le Dormeur
4. D.J P.C* - Inssomniak
5. Modular Expansion - Unit 1
6. A Split Second - Flesh
7. Dilemma - Erase Your Mind
8. Channel X - Rave The Rhythm
9. Pleasure Game - Le Seigneur Des Ténèbres
10. Praga Khan Feat. Jade 4U* - Injected With
From the list above the interest is to be placed on two acts :
Quadrophonia and T 99 , as they both have one thing in common, Olivier Abbeloos.
Going as back as the late 80's this is a name - that to many - means alot.
Quadrophonia were a Dutch/Belgian Techno act, formed by Olivier Abbeloos and Lucien Foort in the late 1980s, with several of their tracks performed by Marvin D (Marvin Tholen).
T99 was initially Patrick de Meyer, who released three solo works under this pseudonym. However, he heard Olivier Abbeloos working on the track "Anasthasia", and suggested that Abbeloos release it as T99.
From then on T99 was a duo, made up of de Meyer and Abbeloos.
Olivier Abbeloos is considered to the most fellow producers the master of oldskool, the legend and a great personality. This somehow justified by his low-profile attitude and modest approach. So here is a good deal: Report2Dancefloor Radio has in hand an exclusive set to be streamed on a special event on February 13th.
