REDNIK’s festival guide: Les Ardentes 2010 (pt. 2)

My favourite festival is getting closer and I received some great news about it! I’m allowed press access, so I’m hoping to do some nice exclusive backstage work! The last artists I mentioned were from the first two days, this next batch is mainly from the third day.

Sub Focus, Andy C

For as far as my knowledge about DnB goes these two are one of the bigger names in the scene. After all the electro, hiphop and alternative rock violence some straight to the point DnB is always appreciated. The two indoor halls are perfect for this and last edition also proofs DnB brings up probably the best audience atmosphere.


Probably the most bizar figure of the already extravagant ed banger bunch. Even though he isn’t very strong in the technical dj’ing stuff, probably most of the time because he is under influence (check out this appearance in this Ed Banger Seven video), but as a producer he’s an absolute genious and he will certainly bring the best electro bangers of the moment.

Hudson Mohawke

I haven’t heard much stuff from this guy before I looked him up when he appeared in the Les Ardentes lineup, but after some classic youtube research I really started digging his productions. It’s hard to describe his “genre” it feels like a mixture of hip-hop background tunes, electronic stuff and dubstep? I’m looking forward to his performance and I bet it will the most unique and refreshing one.


Health is not your average alternative rock band. This L.A. based band brings very experimental stuff with the use of your typicall drum, guitar stuff and some amazing synths and electronic stuff. When looking at the video you immediately think “what a bunch of weirdos, especially the one in the front!”, but still the stuff they bring is very addictive? in some way. Curious who this will be live and what reactions we’ll see from the crowd.

Don Rimini

Was called one of the best djsets at Les Transardentes (the smaller one night version of Les Ardentes). His newest EP is coming 5 July, so I’m hoping for lots of new stuff. Not much more to add, he probably won’t disappoint!

Les Petits Pilous

Even though I’m not a huge fan of their latest EP these two guys still bring back some good old memories. In a small venue not far from where I live there was a party … with Les Petits Pilous. The “electronic scene” isn’t so big over here, so of course the turn up wasn’t that big. Still these guys went full on and the accompanying Born To Film crew even tried to Crowd surf (I think there were two rows of people in front of the stage …)

Sound of Stereo

These guys were absolutly everywere last year and are still killing it in 2010, even though I must say I’m not the biggest fan of their latest remix for Proxy. Even though I have already heard them plenty of times I’ll still swoop by even if it’s only for their “big-room banger” Metric, which will sound brilliantly in the big indoor halls.

Janelle Monae

A name from day two, but a nice fresh artist to describe at the end of this Les Ardentes guide. Janelle Monae isn’t a name that would normally pass the frontpage on this blog, but from what I’ve seen from youtube videos she brings an amazing live performance. She brings a mixture of soulfull hiphop and jazz.


I Crave Paris

Some rather sad news came from Aeroplane a good week (or is it already two weeks?) ago. Aeroplane split up, I immediately feared the worst, but it was actually just one of the two members, Stephen, who left Aeroplane to go an other direction in producing music (maybe this can be a very good thing?!). Vito (he’s on the right in the picture) is carrying on with Aeroplane, who was doing most of the stuff behind Aeroplane anyway. Today Aeroplane reached 10.000+ facebook fans and therefore are, I mean “is” (this splitting up makes it a bit confusing) giving away a free track. You probably heard it on the 500th Essential mix, dreamy vocals and a typical Aeroplane sound!

Belgium is getting his first heatwave of the Summer and as some of you probably read on our facebook page we all took some time to catch our breath after school. That’s why the blog hasn’t been very alive, but don’t worry we’ll be posting frequently again soon. In the mean while I’m writing up the second part of the Les Ardentes guide and giving you the following few tracks straight from the inbox.

Admiral Freebee is a name I wasn’t expecting, but there he is. I’m guessing he’s trying to launch himself across the borders of Belgium. This next remix is from DJ Harvey for the track “My Hippie Ain’t Hip”. A combination of guitar rifs and minimal electro working suprisingly well.

Admiral Freebee – My Hippie Aint Hip (Harvey Remix)

Blende Adam Freeland and Etienne De Crecy and you get … the following track.

Adam Freeland – How To Fake Your Own Life (Etienne De Crecy Remix)

Swoon from the Chemical Brothers might become a big hit during this Summer. Original or Boys Noize remix? I don’t care they are both awesome. Another awesome track coming from the same album is Horse Power. Here’s the Kovary remix who added some more punch to the track.

The Chemical Brothers – Horse power (Kovary remix)

Not a big fan from BeatAuCue, think their productions are a bit over hyped (in my opinion). But this remix is far from bad. Nice hipsters lyrics with a nice vibe in the background.

Florrie – 911 (BeatauCue remix – JBAG edit)

Don Rimini worked himself up high rather fast. Last year he killed it at Pukkelpop and Transardentes, didn’t see both of them, but he’s back in Belgium next week for Les Ardentes and this time I’m not going to miss it. His new EP which is being released 5 July will most definitely be in his playlist and we have one track for free from that EP.

Don Rimini – All About

Capt and Cooked got a lot of good responds for their youtube bootleg of Sebastian – Threnody. Here is one of their latest remixes for the Klaxons – Flashover. Anyone have news on a new album of the Klaxons? Let us know!

Klaxons – Flashover (Capt and Cooked Remix)

Katy Perry seems to have scored another chart hit with her California Girls featuring Snoop Dogg. Dj Barlette hooked us up with his remix. Very fresh with the typical Barletta signature.

Katy Perry – California Girls (Barletta Remix)

Ow yeah, and we strongly recommend Stella Artois beer as your summer beverage!
