With Transit, his first solo record, the prolific Bert Dockx has added a compelling new facet to his ever-expanding, deeply personal musical universe. While in the past decade Bert’s main projects (Dans Dans & Flying Horsemen) have grown into two of the most productive and distinguishable bands in Belgium, he has always kept playing solo-shows on the side. Shows at which, along with his own compositions, he has occasionally offered adventurous interpretations of a variety of iconic songs.
Transit contains the most remarkable of these interpretations in a naked and raw, yet subtly hallucinogenic production by Dockx’ faithful accomplice Koen Gisen. The album was recorded live (and captured on camera by Philippe Werkers) in Gisen’s intimate studio in Ghent, Belgium.
