I still treasure those Belgian electronic bands!
Just before BIM-day we managed to ask our aftershow ambiance master TERENCE FIXMER some questions about Crash Course in Science, Bimfest and his plans for us that night!
I believe you are one of the few well known electro/techno dj’s that has no problem exposing his roots and influences, why is that?
Of course not, like everybody I had some influences which drove me in my music creativity and I like to show to my audience where it comes from.
What do you know about the Belgian electronic underground scene from the past?
I was addict to all this Belgium electronic bands from a;Grumh…, A Split Second, The Neon Judgement, The Klinik and of course Front 242 and etc..
Which new and not so new Belgian bands do you (still) like /follow today?
I still like to listen to Dirk Ivens ‘s projects, The neon Judgement and Front 242, those bands belongs to my electronic education and so I like to see what is going on with them…new tracks, re-editions, remixes … everything.
How/why/when did you decide to release the Crash Course in Science remixes ‘Cardboard Lamp’ and ‘Flying Turns’ on 12”.
I always loved Crash Course In Science, even if they only released a few tracks they were amazing, sounding so industrial, with a great electronic groove and ambiance.
How can a band with such a little discography become so important/know in the electronic scene?
Just because their tracks were precursors, they became big classic electronic club tracks. They had a unique sound and style.
You played our Bimfest before with Fixmer/McCarthy any (good) memories about that night and/or general impressions of our festival?
Yes I remember! It’s always a good crowd with a good knowledge about music and there are passionate people. So it’s a pleasure to play for this crowd because u can test and try thing as this crowd is really open minded.
Which bands are you looking forward to see this year?
I would like to see them all, with a little preference for CCIS, as they played live for the 1st time since more than 15 years, and because they will introduce some unknown track as well. And of course, I’m happy to meet them in real life after so many years of exchanging e-mails.
What can we expect from you that night?
I don’t know yet, I think I will let my feeling go with the flow … but I will probably some old classic track from all those classic band I mentioned before, and maybe some unreleased material from me and Fixmer/McCarthy as well.
Any message to our readers/visitors?
Follow your instinct, don’t follow the hype :)
Thanks for your time!
