The Wire


Listen: Global Ear Antwerp tracks

September 2013

Stream a selection of tracks by musicians from Antwerp's underground scene, selected by Allon Kaye, label runner of Entr'acte, and co-author with Clodagh Kinsella of The Wire 356 Global Ear.

"Belgium – invaded time and again by armies marching around Europe – used to lack a distinct musical identity, but from 1985–95, with the arrival of a homegrown style, New Beat, and the influential role of Belgian producers on early Techno, all that changed." Kaye and Kinsella look at the Belgian port city's underground scene via Vaast Colson and Dennis Tyfus' (Ultra Eczema label founder) Stadslimiet venue, Radio Centraal, Nema Tog Podruma festival, and the musicians who live and work there.
