When all the pieces of the puzzle fall together. Live performance of his debut album”Opposite minds“Together with Brussels singer Mewi, DJ Zemst Nico Morano (42 years old) will be remembered for a long time.
With a party that declares itself as a party Sunset dance on the roof It is often easily manipulated in electronic dance music. But for Morano’s first full-length LP, that classification was more than appropriate. The roof was on the 11th floor of the Soko Commercial Building in Krainem. A unique location: not only because the dance was performed for the first time, but especially because of the heavenly panoramic view over the Sonian Forest.
The sunset of Sunday 8 October was one of our Indian summers, and it was unexpected. As Mewi unleashed his dreamy songs on the happy few at 6pm, our smartphone screen showed 22 degrees and full sun. With Murano already providing the perfect melodic warm-up between 4 and 6pm and adding another hour after 7pm, the sunset over the Sonian Forest must have rarely been this atmospheric.

“I still see him coming to my house in my studio on his mobile phone,” Nico Morano said when we asked him about what it was like to collaborate with Mewi – aka Jill Verhagen –. “In February 2020 I was looking for a singer for one song, Bingo. I reached out to Gil through my department, although they immediately said he was a rather “shy” guy. But when we met at Café Belga on Place Flagey, I immediately felt a connection. A day later he was already in Zemst and we sang that song. Great…until the pandemic hit a month later. And since we were coming out of a breakup, that’s just us com.coronabuddies Become. One song became two songs, three songs…which we were always very excited about. The singles are worthy.”
“I could have released them all separately through different labels to get as much global exposure as possible, but we thought it would be more fun – sorry for the cliché – to release these as a story on one album on my own label ‘Ontourage’. You don’t have to look far for the title Opposite Minds: Gilles mainly makes songs around three minutes long for the French-speaking market, while I make electronic tracks that are often over seven minutes long for the club circuit or Spotify. Musically, we’re true opposites. (Laughs) And in more areas, actually. Don’t take pictures with us.”
Morano and Moehe closed with “Juno Love,” their latest hit, which is regularly played by the popular German group Keinemusik (See the video below), but in the near future they will focus on “One Too Many” in which their opposite minds blend perfectly, with a beat that turns into a club track. With Harvey, there’s also a track that only has 83 BPM, a track they simply couldn’t play yesterday because it was too slow. This wouldn’t even fit into the perfect picture above Krainim yesterday.
