Ben Liebrand

Saturday September 24

A well-known Dutch house remixer (though he claims his work is more geared to genuine cover versions because of the re-recording process he embarks on), Liebrand recorded in his own right in the 90s with ‘Eve Of The War’ and ‘Black Belly’. His remixes include high-profile work for Phil Collins and Hot Chocolate. Within a more conventional dance format he also produced the Crystal Palace featuring CP’s ‘Son Of Godzilla’. His solo album featured British vocalist Carol Kenyon (of Heaven 17’s ‘Temptation’ fame) and rapper Toni Scott. ‘I’ve always enjoyed being a bit in the background’, he maintained. His chart successes include Jeff Lynne’s ‘Eve Of The War’, Bill Withers’ ‘Lovely Day’, Phil Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’, Vangelis’ ‘Puls(t)ar’ and the Ram Jam Band’s ‘Black Berry’. All were created originally for his own radio show on Radio Veronica in Holland.
