The Netherlands

and Belgium unite

We’re bringing together some exciting music scenes from the

Netherlands and Belgium and showcase them at Popkomm this

year. Working with Flanders Music Centre, musicXport.nl will

organise a showcase at the Maschinenhaus in the Kulturbrauerei

on Wednesday 8 October. Voicst and zZz will represent the

Netherlands, Mintzkov and Sharko will rock for Belgium.

For more information about this showcase go to:

www.BE-NL-music.com.

The Bloody Honkies

The Bloody Honkies were founded in late 2005 in Barlo, a

small village in the far east of Holland. A show at EuroSonic

Noorderslag 2007 brought them a record deal and they released

their debut album The Gospel Of The Bloody Honkies

last year.

The band consists of vocals-and-dance man Lawrence Mul,

guitarist Wout Kemkens, drummer Hooky and bass player

Clemens Mul. They play rock-’n’-roll and they play it loud.

They have little respect for conventions, and play their type of

rock: swingin’, energetic, and raw.

Club shows, festivals and support acts quickly followed

their notorious Noorderslag gig. At one gig, they played with

compatriots Peter Pan Speedrock and The Spades, as well as

Wolfmother, The Datsuns and the legendary Status Quo.

Headlife

This band offers powerful performances, sticky songs, heavy

guitar riffs and straight from the heart vocals. A five-man formation,

they are one of the most promising rock bands from The

Hague at present. The band is: Slo (vocals), Daan (guitar, backing

vocals), Roach (guitar), Francis (bass) and Jelger (drums). They

play a tough mixture of rock and pop; raging crowds are common

at their live shows.

Headlife have already played a lot of festivals and stages all over

the Netherlands. In the summer of 2007 they presented their first

mini-EP, Man’s Ruin, a touching release, and one people had high

expectations about. One song, Foolish, has been played a lot on

Dutch local radio stations. Headlife recently recorded their new

single, Just for You, and their first album is expected early 2009.

This band is ready for a European tour.

zZz

zZz is one helluva sleazy steamin’

locomotive, barrelling out of Amsterdam.

Organ, drums and vocals

are all this duo need to serve up

a Molotov cocktail of psychedelic

electro wave, garage soul and

dirty rock & roll. zZz first got going

eight years ago, at the turn of the

century, when roomies Björn Ottenheim

and Daan Schinkel started

making music in their basement,

using only a simple drum kit and

an old $50 church organ. Within

a week they had composed five

songs and were invited to play at

the party of an infamous Dutch

smuggler, where the Sound of zZz

was born. From then on zZz built

up a notorious live reputation and

the show requests came flowing

in. Invitations by the likes of Fatboy Slim (for a tour in Japan),

Juliette & The Licks, Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand and The

Happy Mondays – to name but a few – were followed by a

string of dates at major European Festivals (Glastonbury,

Benicassim, Les Eurockéennes, Pukkelpop, Lowlands, Arezzo

Wave, among others). The release of their album The Sound

Of zZz was followed by some extensive club touring throughout

Europe and the USA. The next album is due out in October

on ANTI Records.

Racoon

Racoon was founded in 1997 by Bart van der Weide (vocals) and Dennis

Huige (guitarist). They were joined several months later by Stefan

de Kroon (bass) and Paul Bukkens (drums). In January 2000 they

released their debut album, Till Monkeys Fly. Their single, Feel Like Flying,

was a mega hit on Dutch national radio stations. After that, Racoon

played the Parkpop and Lowlands festivals. The band headed into the studio to record a new album in the summer of 2001. Here We Go,

Stereo! was well received by press and public. Amazingly, however, Sony decided to terminate their contract in 2002. The band didn’t give

up though. Working in close cooperation with one of their very first fans, producer Michel Schoots (Urban Dance Squad), they recorded

the Another Day album in 2004, under their own management. This album set in motion their monster hit, Love You More in 2005, and the

album went platinum. The band has been quickly recognised as one of the most successful Dutch bands today, and Racoon’s club tour in

2005 sold out. They had a successful festival season in 2006.

In 2007 Another Day was released in the United States and Canada, followed by their first ever American tour. This year they released

their latest album, their fourth: Before You Leave.

Voicst

Voicst, the rock trio from Amsterdam, has quickly established a reputation as one

of the most innovative, exciting and intense bands in Europe. The band, Tjeerd

Bomhof (guitar, vocals), Sven Woodside (bass, vocals) and Joppe Molenaar (drums,

samples) recorded debut album 11-11 in New York with producer and Girls Against

Boys bass player Eli Janney. Their debut album brought them instant success,

and singles from the album were quickly picked up and used for commercials

(Heineken) and TV shows (One Tree Hill). The band have a habit of relentless touring,

and they have spent time on the road with Nada Surf, Bettie Serveert, Tenacious

D, Juliette & the Licks, The Presidents of the United States of America and

The Bravery.

In 2007 the band came with a remarkable second album, which they called A Tale

Of Two Devils. The album was produced by Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) and

Rutger Hoedemaeker of Dutch electro pop output About. On May 30, 2008 Voicst

was voted one of the best bands at Pinkpop, the biggest festival in the country.

Dutch Dance CD

2008 Part 2

Buma Cultuur will present Dutch Dance CD 2008 Part 2 at Popkomm this

year. This compilation is brimful of the newest electronic productions from

the Netherlands. New songs from Armin van Buuren, Miss Djax, Marcella,

Matik, TJ Kong & Nuno dos Santos, Krause and Nobody Beats The Drum are

on the track list. Dutch Dance CD 2008 Part 2 is available for free at the

Buma Cultuur dutchsound.nl stand at Popkomm.

Miss Djax

Miss Djax returned to dj-íng and producing in 2004 after several years of radio silence. She’d gone

from working in a record shop to running the successful and respected Djax labels over the 15 years

before. Her flagship, Djax-Up-Beats, is a legendary name in techno. Miss Djax’s own work evolved from

Chicago and acid into hard techno. Legendary gabber pioneers Human Resource contributed to the

track on this CD, which will be the bonus track for her upcoming album, Inferno

Nobody Beats The Drum

Nobody Beats The Drum certainly take their time: after

winning the Dance Music award at the Grote Prijs van

Nederland in 2003, it took five years for the trio to finish

and release their debut album Beats Work. One reason is

no doubt the fact that its members play in other bands,

like Zuco 103 and C-mon & Kypski. The band combines the

sound of hip hop and breaks with electro and rock. They

run their own label and are very focused on playing live.

Armin van Buuren feat.

Sharon den Adel

Here, two of Holland’s biggest musical export products are

brought together on one track. It’s an unlikely combination, but it

works: the world’s number one DJ Armin van Buuren with Sharon

den Adel, vocalist of award-winning, million-selling goth metal

band Within Temptation. The track, a mix of breakbeat and electro

styles and Armin’s usual trance sound, is the second single

from his Imagine album on Armada Records. The EP comes with

remixes from Blizzard and Richard Durand.

TJ Kong & Nuno

dos Santos

TJ Kong and Nuno dos Santos

started working as a production

team with Circus Bells for Compost

Records last year. The track

was made as a Brazilian version

of Robert Armani’s classic. After

Pete Tong made it an essential

tune, it became a big hit.

Portuguese-born Dos Santos is

a DJ and graphic designer, Kong

is an alter ego of Erwin van Moll

a.k.a. Max 404 and as one half

of Clashing Egos. The duo have

also worked with Robert Owens,

and released Dropout on the b-

side of the Tranentrekker EP on

Compost Black.

Photo Hülya Kiliçaslan

Marcella

Marcella is another female

DJ who started producing

tracks in 2005.

Her track, Stabbing Sally,

became a big house hit.

After she won the Toolroom

Remix competition

in that same year, remix

requests started coming

in too. With Virgil van

Leeuwaarde she is part

of Unisex Inc., a production

duo known from the

Bouncing Nipples track.

Marcella has her own

monthly house night in

Amsterdam. Inside, her

latest single, is on Terminal

4 Records.

Belgium focus for

EuroSonic Noorderslag 2009

The European Music Conference and Showcase

Festival brings Belgian music to the forefront.

The 2009 edition of Euro-

Sonic Noorderslag will

take place on 15, 16 and 17

January in the Dutch city of

Groningen. This year the focus

will be on Belgian music

talent and on the Belgian

music industry. The festival

will comprise the EuroSonic

Noorderslag festivals and

conference, and over 250

international bands and acts

will be performing that weekend.

Around 2,500 music

business professionals are

expected to attend.

“With its location in the

heart of Europe, Belgium is a

melting pot of cultural influences

where bands such as

Front 242 and TC Matic were

first inspired to create their

unique sound,” says Peter

Smidt, creative director of

EuroSonic Noorderslag and

project manager of

Buma Cultuur. “Many

bands followed and

gained international

respect: dEUS, Soulwax,

Girls in Hawaii and Ghinzu,

to name only a few. Belgium

has a vibrant live music

scene with lots of great venues,

clubs and festivals. Rock

Werchter, of course, is recognized

as the best festival in

the world. Aside from shows

by several Belgian bands

and acts, the focus of panels

and meetings during the

conference will be on doing

business with Belgium.”

The Belgium focus is supported by Studio

Brussel, Wallonie Bruxelles Musiques and

Flanders Music Centre.
