PLASTYC BUDDHA - THROWING STONES IN PLACID POOLS (CD / LP) (release: 16/04/2001)
Stephan Parmentier and Pieter Verschueren are Plastyc Buddha, the latest proponent of Antwerp's incredibly fertile and versatile underground music scene. Parmentier and Verschueren, both seasoned performers and in-demand session musicians, have created an album that no doubt will come to be regarded as one of the outstanding releases of the year. The 11 track, 54 minutes album "Throwing Stones In Placid Pools" is a 'must have' record that keeps on growing with each listening session. Based around the gently mesmerising chimes of the Fender Rhodes electric piano and peppered with latin beats, this is the sound of seduction - it's irresistable.

In the back of the shop they built a studio in which they produce their own music on their label Clubtraxx Records. After they produced two hits, the idea appeared to create an own album. They managed to do this after 1,5 year. The album contains next to their hits also the new single Scream and some unreleased tracks such as Fantasy drive.

>> PHUTURE 303 - SURVIVAL'S OUR MISSION (CD) (release: 19/03/2001)
The pioneering spirit of the first hour back at the Music Box still lives on with each new track that Phuture creates. Now with some of their best material to date Phuture release their new album on Belgium's infamous Music Man label. The album features a return of DJ Pierre to the group for a new version of Lil Louis legendary 'Blackout' with Spanky doing the vocals again from scratch. The new album, 'Survival's Our Mission', staying true to the original spirit and sound of this pioneering outfit. There is much debate and speculation about who created Acid music. The general consensus of opinion swings towards Phuture after their release of the classic hit 'Acid Tracks'. Phuture had unwittingly created the blueprint for the children of the revolution, and turned the dance music world on its head. Survival's Our Mission features some of Phuture's most prolific production work to date besides 'Blackout' weighing in at a full length, vinyl only mix of 13 minutes (edited CD version) are club jems such as 'Flatline' and 'Riden' as well as the low-pitched 'Vintage Drums' and instantly recognisable vocals of Spanky for the album titled 'Survival's Our Mission'. The minimal tribal rhyhms of 'Pro-Traxx Rhythm' 'Metal Percussions', and 'Tribal Tek' all add to the unique styles of Phuture's creativity, while '2001' and 'Northern Lights' show their deeper shades utilising exuberant strings over solid percussion, but never loosing sight of the dancefloor.
PHuture will survive!
