Belgian musician & DJ Peter Van Hoesen has many strings to his bow: a prolific DJ deeply rooted in the Brussels electronic music scene since the 90s, he also owns and runs two labels, Time To Express & Foton, while also finding the time to moonlight as a sound & composer designer for contemporary dance & theatre.
For his mix, Peter conjures up a suitably-theatrical 80s mood of squealing guitars and soaring synthesisers, as he explains: "This mix represents my listening habits from the last five months. Lately I have been going back to the music I was listening to when growing up - mostly new wave, post-punk, vaguely electronic sounding tracks.
It struck me that, after completing the mix, most of the tracks selected originate from the UK. I also like to think that this is the first mix in a series that will look back on that specific (late) eighties period that is heavily represented in my record collection. I feel there's at least one other mix coming up. For now, please enjoy."
