Bands > Compact Disk Dummies
In 2012 Compact Disk Dummies won Humo’s Rock Rally - a renowned music contest in Belgium. In 2013 they released the EP Mess with Us with dancefloor classic ‘The Reeling’. Before they realized it, they were partying on all the bigger festival stages in Belgium – Dour! Lokerse Feesten! Pukkelpop! - and abroad where they played for instance at Sziget (HU), Les Transmusicales (FR) and Welcome to the Village (NL). They released their full album Silver Souls in 2016 from which the singles ‘Holy Love’, ‘Girls Keep Drinking’, ‘Remain in Light’ and their accompanying video’s carefully tailored the profile of the band to a classic party act in clubs and festivals in their home country. After an interlude during which Lennert and Janus wrote the music score for a Flemish TV series and a role as the first in-house band for satirical news program ‘De Ideale Wereld’ in 2017 and 2018, the Dummies returned with a new single ‘Cry For Me’ in May 2019. This song became an instant hit on several Belgian radios and announced the Satellites EP, due for release in October. Compact Disk Dummies live has always been a unique experience: in the summer of 2019 - from now on with Robin Wille on drums - they transformed Pukkelpop’s Dance Hall into a giant sauna, with a sweat-drenched dancing crowd who sang-along their hits, dancing to the relentless beats. Shortly after AB in Brussels announced 2 club shows that sold out in less than 5 minutes. In February 2020, the band received the Best Dance award at the Belgian Music Industry Awards (MIA), by-passing Lost Frequencies, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike as well as Regi, thus setting high expectations for an upcoming album. On May 15 Compact Disk Dummies will release the much anticipated follow-up album Neon Fever Dream. First single ‘I Remember’ out now.
