We’re in Moscow for a few days and this morning, I was surprised to hear the song Ayo Technology by the Belgian band Milow at breakfast in our hotel! I’m always happy to hear a familiar tune that I like, especially if it’s Belgian. It’s one of these rare moments I feel some patriotism. 🙂 Wim usually doesn’t share this feeling at all and even claimed this morning that this is the perfect proof that Milow is “muzak” (the kind of music played at airports, train stations etc.).
Today was not the first time I heard Belgian music here in Russia. One of the first times was in a taxi when Stromae was played on the radio. Another time was Gabriel Rios (in the shopping centre) and Selah Sue (don’t remember where that was). I also saw a poster for a dance festival on the aeroexpress train in Moscow a while ago that had a Belgian DJ on it. I think it was Netsky, but I’m not entirely sure. I must admit I’m not so familiar with electronic music, otherwise I think I’d feel patriotic more often. 🙂
Which Belgian bands or DJs do you think I should introduce here? Any suggestions?
