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.

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 ...
