Track Reviews: Ethan Fawkes ‘Belgium Is Back (Remixes)’May 27, 2023
Words by Peri GLOWKiD
One of the best descendants of the established Belgian Techno scene, the man like Ethan Fawkes returns this year wearing his remixed military suit.
His successful declaration ‘Belgium Is Back’ sees a brand new remixed release this time through Paris based n9 Multimedia Lab, and with the likes of some of the most outstanding producers.
Starting with the German 90s superstars Interactive (Jens Lissat & Ramon Zenker) and their brilliant remix that links old school vibe with 2023 energy. Then comes an irresistible TBM banger from Crystal Geometry (Tripalium, Bpitch Control, Sonic Groove, Nu Body).
They are accompanied by Luke Riga, aka Luc Rigaux, yet another legendary artist of the New Beat movement (Apotheosis, Rebel X, The Unity Mixers, but to name a very few of his numerous aliases since the 90s) and two acclaimed modern days Berlin activists, Monya and Romance Disaster, both delivering dark, strong and inspired TBM excursions.
All of these great remixes come among the original version of this anthemic tune as included on Ethan’s personal ‘Hoovers & Stabs’ album, which was released in 2019.
