Belgian artist Enzo Kreft released two obscure but widely acclaimed minimal synth cassette-albums in the early eighties, creating a dark and atmospheric sound, using lo-fi overdubbing techniques with synths, drum machines, tapeloops and an electric guitar. His debut album "Me Is" (1983) has become a worldwide collector's item, containing his bestknown tracks "Beauty Queen" and "Erotic Fantaseesz". In his second album "Cicatrice" (1984), Enzo evokes images of an apocalyptic society full of fear, paranoia and destruction. In 2010, "Beauty Queen" and "Erotic Fantaseesz" appeared on "Underground Belgian Wave Vol. 2" of Walhalla Records, Lieven De Ridder's famous Belgian independent record label. In 2011, Kreft decided to re- release his two cassette-albums as a CD-R-album: "This Is Ik!". 2016 was a successful year for Enzo Kreft: Walhalla Records breathed renewed vinyl life into Kreft's old cassettes, in the form of "Dark Matter" and a few months later Enzo released the CD-R album: "Turning Point". In September 2017, "We're Breaking Out", a track from "Turning Point" appeared on the "Electronic Body Matrix 2" 4CD Boxset of Alfa Matrix. Now Enzo Kreft is here with a brand new album: "Wasteland".
