    When it comes down to combining the best of many musical worlds, Peter Van Hoesen can say he's been doing it for a while now. Deeply rooted in the Belgian electronic music scene, he is considered by many as a man with multiple musical talents: from straight-up dancefloor jackin' techno to advanced abstract electronica. He is active as a DJ, producer, composer and sound designer for contemporary dance and theatre.
    Since 2006 Peter has established a reputation for producing solid but thoughtful techno. His productions are mainly released through his own Time To Express imprint. Attention to detail, a healthy obsession with bass and a profound love for the dancefloor are trademark aspects of his work. This was soon picked up by other labels, resulting in releases for Komisch, Curle, Meakusma and Morse. A string of remixes concludes this list, most notably his dark 2009 techno reconstruction of Ed Rush & Optical's seminal tech-step burner 'Defect'. His 2010 album 'Entropic City' was heralded by many as a contemporary classic.
    Peter's techno sound is best described as bass-heavy, 6 am warehouse music with a twist. His monthly DJ residency at Brussels' legendary Fuse club showcases this particular take on electronic dance music. With a keen ear for new sounds his musical approach is distinctly forward looking, while staying connected to electronic dance music's rich past.
