Dark Demon(n)s wanted to play BIMFEST 2017!
We’re happy to announce that also this year we will organize a Dark Demons Night.
The MOST IMPORTANT GOAL of this night is to GIVE BANDS A OPPORTUNITY to present themselves LIVE in the BEST CONDITIONS. This means on a REAL STAGE, with a PERFECT SOUND-SYSTEM and professional LIGHTS.
A pleasant extra of playing our Dark Demons nights is that the audience can choose 2 bands who may open BIMFEST 2017. Also good to know is that only 6 bands will be selected for this Dark Demons Night so your band will have a 1/3 chance to play BIMFEST too!
So if you are interested and you think your music style fits our festival, please send us (BodyBeats Belgium) a private message with your information and email address so we can provide you the general conditions.
Here are some requirements:
- Be available on June 17th
- Be available on the dates of BIMFEST (15 & 16 December)
- Register before 1st of March!
This is your chance to play at BIMFEST, so bring it on!
AND DON’T FORGET TAKING PART IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WINNING!
PS: This year our Dark Demon Night is also open for foreign bands!

Last time to see Agent Side Grinder perform in Belgium with their current Line-up!
An important message from the Agent Side Grinder headquarters reached us today...
Charismatic singer Kristoffer Grip has decided to quit Agent Side Grinder due to lack of time in his current life. Following his decision two other members, Henrik Sunbring and Thobias Eidevald, have also decided to leave the band and move on.
Original Agent Side Grinder founders Johan Lange and Peter Fritstedt however will not trow in the towel on their baby and will continue with the band, fulfill their vision and record a new Agent Side Grinder album for Progress Productions in 2017.
Luckily this drastic and sudden line-up change will not jeopardize the upcoming and scheduled concerts this spring. They will still take place in the original 5 piece line-up.
But these concerts will be the final opportunity to see Agent Side Grinder in this constellation!
One of those last opportunities will be on February 10th @ JH Wommel - Wommelgem - Belgium where Agent Side Grinder will perform together with the Croation bands Posimonona & Sleep Loan Sharks.[permalink]

Crash Course In Science's 'Jump Over Barrels' #3 on Trevor Jackson's Top releases of 2016.
Crash Course In Science "Jump Over Barrels" EP with a new remix by Charles Manier took #3 on Trevor Jackson's Top releases of 2016 for Boomkat and #4 on Resident Advisor's Top Reissues of 2016.
"A long-lost cut from a post-punk band recorded in 1981, "Jump Over Barrels" has real dance floor bona fides. You can't beat the combo of that synth, sounding like it's about to explode, and Michael Zodorozny's nervous, quavering vocals. This erratic energy made it a favourite for DJs as diverse as Carlos Souffront, Andrew Weatherall and Truss."
