Belgium Underground : interview met Lieven de Ridder

Lieven de Ridder

Lieven de Ridder is a real music fanatic, more precisely he is a devoted fan of the underground belgian electronic scene of the 1980’s. He has rapidely evolved from a simple collector to a concert and festival curator, before setting up the label Walhalla Records to share his passion for the most obscure bands of that time. He offers a second life to unsuspected gems, originally published in limited editions on cassette tapes, now reissued for the first time on vinyl. With five volumes since 2010, his series of anthologies Underground Belgian Wave has quickly become essential, and he has recently added a volume dedicated to wave singles, as well as some judicious reissues (Asmodaeus, Kloot Per W, Bene Gesserit, Arbeid Adelt!)
