A link with the past: it's Silvano Matadin, the bass player of Urban Dance Squad, who shouts in the studio "JMX is in the house!" during the recording of "Mental Floss for the Globe" (1989), album produced by JMA. For that... JMX.



Without any hurry, Jean-Marie has been tinkering and constructing his 'own' project for a while. He set up JMX in 1994. The home recording and the rehearsals made for a fruitful creative process, resulting in a surprising number of new tracks.

JMA (JMX) performed on New Year's Eve 1994 at the Brussels Luna Theatre.

Here's Jean-Marie's casting for the very creative core team that surrounds him: dj Donotask, Patrick Bylebyl and Philippe Comte (rhythm section), Angélique Willkie and Aura Msimang Berton (vox).
