"The Subs are Jeroen De Pessemier aka Papillon (singer/producer), Wiebe Loccufier aka Tonic (half of dj-duo Starski & Tonic, heirs to the Culture Club-throne, as they took over the residency spot at the infamous Ghent club from 2 ManyDJs and The Glimmers) and Stefan Bracke aka l’entrepreneur (splits his time between deejaying with The Subs and fronting his raverockband Foxylane).
The past months, The Subs have enthralled audiences with a live show comprising of a unique set up: 2 deejays and a man behind the microphone/synth. No hiding behind laptops - The Subs take the sweaty punktrashfeel to the dance stage - they work those machines! With gigs at Dour Festival (B), Pukkelpop (B), Social Club (Paris), Razzmatazz (Barcelona), Fabric (LDN) and Club Low (Madrid) having secured the band's live reputation, this Fall sees The Subs dropping their hotly anticipated debut album.
The Subs are not your average 'let's mess around with some analogue machines' band. They fought with the machines until a consistent album, a true body of work, came about. Papillon being the songwriter-half bred on landmark nineties dance-albums from the likes of Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers and Underworld, and Tonic being the dj/producer with a passion for brand new underground releases and innovative sounds, The Subs had made an album with songs lurking underneath the sounds. (There's even a mellotron on the album - we kid you not, the retrofuturistic instrument the Beatles used on 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds'!)
'Subculture' is a dance album that you can listen to in your car. In your living room. In your bed room. Anywhere. The mood is intense and brooding. It's a down-right dirty stunner with both euphoric peaks and melancholy-melodic moments."
