Enzo Kreft is , a Belgian artist living in Mechelen, between Brussels and Antwerp. He released two obscure minimal synth cassette-albums in the early eighties, creating a dark and atmospheric sound, using lo-fi overdubbing techniques with a Korg MS-10, a monophonic Yamaha CS01 synth, a Crumar Trilogy keyboard, a Sound Master SR-88 rhythm box, a Roland TR-606 drum machine, tapeloops and an electric guitar. Enzo’s debut album “Me Is” (1983) has become a worldwide collector’s item, containing his best-known 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. After “Cicatrice” Enzo Kreft dropped into obscurity for many years. 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: 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 album “Turning Point”. In 2017, Enzo Kreft released a brand new CD-album: “Wasteland”. In 2018 Enzo Kreft started his live tour with a intense, energetic show and breathtaking visuals.
