For those who are into Dance, Techno and Trance, the name Peter Bellaert will surely sound more than familiar. As a DJ, producer and instigator of, (among others) Minimalistix, E.V.O & Atlantis 6, Peter has set an indelible footprint on the Belgian Dance scene since the 1980’s.
Fortunately, there are proverbs such as “A chip of the old block” since this musical story continues happily from father to son. Or should we say “father with son”?
Son Kenny Bellaert saw his father working on dance and trance tracks for years at a time in his music production studio. Quite soon Kenny was captured himself by the same music microbe as father Peter.
After all, as a child Kenny really enjoyed being immersed in the dance scene, and being Peter’s son he also had regular contacts with people from within this scene.
Where at the time Peter started the well-known and very successful project Minimalistix, son Kenny will now continue (or say expand) this as an eager young colt under the name Maximalistix.
Kenny’s approach is the same as that of his father Peter. But he also makes music where it’s not possible to resist the urge to dance.
His songs are all energetic dance tracks that are partly influenced by the unforgettable dance music from the 80s, 90s and later (a sound strongly determined by his father).
In addition to self-made songs, during his DJ sets, Kenny also drops his own exclusive remixes of the best dance tracks of yesteryear. He will remix them together with his father, yet fully adapted to contemporary musical needs. These tracks are the sounds of the peak years of dance music, yet in an ultra-modern jacket. These songs can only be heard during Kenny’s live sets because they will never be released commercially.
Exclusivity is the word! However, at all times the focus will be on the self-made songs. Thanks to his father’s legacy, but mainly through his own efforts and experience, Kenny has the know-how to make songs that are so infectious, dynamic and danceable that they really have the potential to make the Belgian dance scene number one worldwide again, as it has been before.
The first house release on the GLB label is a fact.
