FAB CODE BIOGRAPHY

At an early age Fab was bewitched by music. It was around 6 years of age that he was attracted by the sounds of soul, funk and later disco, funky, new-wave playing from his parents jukebox. Raised to the sounds of Tamla Motown, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Barry White, KC & The Sunshine Band, Kraftwerk, Human League, Depeche Mode and many others, he built up a solid and diverse music background.

In the early 80’s he began his DJ career (as DJ Fab) and became resident in a trendy club in Brussels called “Disco Steve.” Residencies and bookings would follow one another until 1988, playing in many local top venues such as Le Veaudeville, Le Garage, Le Varieté, La Pergola, Le Disque Rouge (Fuse), Las Vegas, and many others. The musical styles he spins with finesse and technique are mainly funk, disco and new wave, the hype music for this era.

After hanging up his DJ gloves, to explore new musical fields, we see him reappear in 1989 with the release of his debut single “Warbeat” under the pseudonym Bassline Boys. The success was immediate following the mini scandal triggered by this title when it was broadcasted in Chistophe Dechavanne’s “Ciel mon mardi” (TF1 – French TV), and the musical response entitled “On se calme (Mr. Dechavanne)” turned into a massive hit in France, selling over 400,000 copies and awarded with a gold record. New Beat, Acid House, Techno and Hardcore releases will succeed during the following years under various monickers, such as Fax Yourself, BSR, Defcon, DSK, Hydrowave, Speed Limit, etc…

In 1994 he decided to return to the turntables, and when he met Claude El Divino (City Parade) he joined the “Underground Energy” team, which allowed him play in one of the most prestigious clubs of Belgium, the Extreme. After a series of bookings with Energy Underground he became a resident at Extreme. Other residencies and bookings followed, including La Raza, Planet Hardcore, Cocoon, Illusion, Zenith, Pavarotti and more…

After a break from both the deejaying and studio work during the early 2000s, he comes back in 2006 with a new challenge, creating and running his own DJ Bar, which will be called “bar©ode. The project took its flight, the parties became famous throughout Belgium and abroad, and renowned DJs lined up behind bar©ode’s decks. Pole Folder (Bedrock Records), Filterheadz (I Love Techno), CP (Pulse Factory) Ecco (KMB records), Rudy (Fuse), Xian (Café d’Anvers), Milo (You), Dave Kane, Trap House, to name a few.

Inspired by the name of his latest project “bar©ode” DJ Fab became Fab Code, and after the bar closed late 2007, he resumed the hunt for bookings. He joined the team of DJ Ecco called “United Elektro” and also played at “Dance Machine” and “Acid Or Not” parties until the end of 2009, then Fab decided to move and settle in the United Kingdom !

Freshly landed in Manchester, his new home, he went back to work and returned to the recording studio to relaunch his career as a producer / composer. He released his first tracks in 2010 on Belgian label Kiss My Beat Records (KMB) and has now signed with Bonzai Music to release some material on Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks and Mint & Mustard labels.
