Cinérex


Eclectic project that dances 'round the edges of techno & pop, groove & lounge. The roots of Cinérex can be traced to 1994, when Kelvin Smits (club-DJ who released some stuff in the early nineties as Kelvin, Astrospider, Nuts on Mars ...) and Tom Barman (singer of the group dEUS) started a cooperation called General Electrique. The result of these two different musical currents was a bunch of demo-tapes with a hypnotizing mixture on it. Although the project raised quite a few expectations Read more on Last.fm
Eclectic project that dances 'round the edges of techno & pop, groove & lounge. The roots of Cinérex can be traced to 1994, when Kelvin Smits (club-DJ who released some stuff in the early nineties as Kelvin, Astrospider, Nuts on Mars ...) and Tom Barman (singer of the group dEUS) started a cooperation called General Electrique. The result of these two different musical currents was a bunch of demo-tapes with a hypnotizing mixture on it. Although the project raised quite a few expectations, there was no release on CD due to problems with the record firm of dEUS. Although Island had an "option" on the group, it decided not to release anything. Meanwhile, Kelvin started searching for like-minded people in the Belgian underground techno-scene.

He found these in Sebastien Kalinji, aka DJ Bobo - one of the founders of the label Wonka Recors - and in Tomy Rombouts - who had some success with the techno-project Digital Excitation but evolved later to a "post-post modernist soundscaper"). With two ladies, Ivy Smits (previously in bands such as Mind The Gap & Fever) and the American Alissa Kueker (ex-Skylab 2000, Bassland ...) the group Cinérex (after a famous movie building in Antwerp) was founded. On occasion, Kelvin also involved his uncle, George Smits - the now defunct musician from the group of skiffle-animal Ferre Grignard, in the experiments. The group started recording immediately (from 1995 to 1997), yet their debut release would only appear in the stores in June 1998. This was because insurmountable troubles arose with the "clearance" of a number of samples on which they built their songs.

After a series of endless negotiations with the owners, they ended up dropping all the samples." After their second album CX and the great succes of Shine and Heavenly with a guest appearance of Ivy Smits (Starkeeper), Kelvin decided to leave the band and start new projects with the other founding father, Bobo. The third album was released in 2009 called "Edges" starring Kevin Ross, Alissa Kueker and Amaryllis Uitterlinden (Ozark Henry) Former band members : - Kelvin Smits - Sebastien Kalonji (aka Bobo) - Ivy Smits (aka Zoumbal Ley, eh ... Zulma Bay) - Alissa Kueker - Tomy Rombouts Actual band members : - Kevin ross Read more on Last.fm.
