Member(s): Stefaan Vandenberghe
Stefaan Vandenberghe is not only known as T-Quest but better known as Dr. Lektroluv. He's earliest musical influences go back as far as Kraftwerk, Fad Gadget, Nitzer Ebb or Liaisons Dangereuses. The short-lived but fierce New Beat era and the acid house period further sharpened his appetite for electronic dance music.
Deejaying and selling records
In the early 90's T-Quest started out as a DJ on a local radio station with 'Behind The Beat', a two hours non-stop program with the latest and upcoming sounds from the underground. At about the same time he started working in the Music Man record store and a couple of years later moved on to the A&R department of the Music Man label for which he created the instant-recognisable 'silver' outlook. Since 1994 Stefaan signed artists such as Secret Cinema, Cherry Bomb, Metro Dade, Sound Associates, Percy X, Steve Rachmad, Green Velvet, Steve Stoll an did compilations with Dave Clarke and Jeff Mills. He holds a residency at Kozzmozz, played in Belgian's most famous clubs (Food, Cherry Moon) as well as festivals (10 Days of Techno, I Love Techno). He travelled the world with his record bags and was invited to New York (Limelight), Paris (Rex), London (The End) and Moscow.
For his first studio production, Stefaan Vandenberghe worked together with Frank De Wulf. 'Play' was released on R&S records as Frank De Wulf vs. T-Quest. His second release, a solo effort, was released at the end of 1996 as a limited twelve-inch (500 copies). Due to popular demand 'Upiter' was re-released on Music Man Records in March '97 including Steve Rachmad and Bandulu remixes. Later on Stefan produced an exclusive track ('Cakewalk') for the Kozzmozz compilation under the moniker of SubSurf. T-Quest was also a resident Deejay at Fuse since January 2001.
