Milk Inc biography

Records company : Antler Subway, ARS Belgium.

Milk Incorporated started as a studio-project of 3 young, talented producers : Regi Penxten (born in 1975), Ivo Donckers and Filip Vandueren. All three of them had been active on big Belgian dance labels like Dance Opera, with projects like K-Lab, Regg & Arkin, and they had remixed songs for various dance-projects.

On stage, Regi is responsible for the keyboards, samplers & sequencing. The dancer Ann Vervoort (born 1977) did the vocals. Actually, there was another vocalist who did main part of the vocals in studio : Karine Boelaerts (She also did vocals for 2 Fabiola and Maurizzio). Another member of the project is John Miles Jr as a guitar player.

La Vache (# 21 in UK, but completely unnoticed in their homeland Belgium) started it all. It got a vocal remix by Praga Khan, with vocals by Jade4U (aka Nikki Van Lier). Many people in France still believe that La Vache is the name of the project ! It was followed by Free Your Mind, featuring vocals by Sofie Winters since Jade4U was already busy as Praga Khan's vocalist. In March 1998, they released their debut album Apocalypse Cow in France... still under the project name La Vache ! They started touring, appearing on the hugest scenes such as Bercy (Paris), Cannes, Monaco, Lyon, etc... Their South-African tour was a huge success, MTV played their hit La Vache in prime-time, and they even were in 'The Box' with artists like Aqua, The Prodigy...

Then Ann Vervoort became a member of Milk Inc, appearing for the first time on Inside Of Me. The clip was not broadcasted in France, where it was estimated too morbid... Then came Losing Love (# 16 in Israel) and In My Eyes (which failed in France but was a huge success in Belgium, selling gold there). Promise was out in April and the album Apocalypse Cow was released in Belgium only in May 1999, more than 1 year later than the French release...

At the end on 1999, they contributed to a song together with all the Antler artists, a cover of the song Do They Know It's Christmas. Each artist also did a song on their own, this is how Milk Inc. recorded a new song called Alone at Christmas.

2000 : Walk On Water was the name of their new single. Ann Vervoort left the group in September. She got married with Pat Krimson from 2 Fabiola and they planned to start their record label : Benimusa. She was replaced by the brunette Linda Mertens.

History tells that, while she was in a club with some friends, Linda found the courage to ask Regi if needed a singer for Milk Inc. After 2 auditions, she was finally selected. The was the beginning of a new Milk Inc era. Linda was presented at the Hitkracht show together with the newest song Land Of The Living. "My first year with Milk Inc. was very hard.", Linda remembers. "I didn't have any musical education, no stage experience except the one as a dancer at discotheques".

In November, the second album Land Of The Living was released. It started with Never Again. High pitched techno at least at the beginning followed by dramatic main body done more into pop-dance. Don't Cry tune was relaxing R&B-like fare. Livin' A Lie was awesome, crossing NRG/euro with rich full of synths buttom. For No Reason was hip-hop. The powerful tune Sweet Surrender featuring Tony Hadley a new romantic icon from Spandau Ballet. Also pleasurable was Time Has Stood Still. Good Euro-Trance in solid production. Losing Love is intoxicating, rumbling Euro-Pop/Techno joy ride. The album is closing by Kevin Marshall's Trance Remix of Land Of The Living.

Caren Meynen is a DJ @ Donna. In 2000 Caren Meynen, DJ at the Belgian radio station Donna, asked a few Belgian groups (among them, Milk Inc, Clouseau and Belle Perez) to make their own version of Doe De Donna. The song, the first Milk Inc track in Flemish language, was never released officially and remained an exclusivity from Radio Donna.

2001 : After the track Livin A Lie, Never Again was be the next single to be released. It was the same powerful eurotrance style, inspired to Linda by her ex... Then there was a re-release of Walk On Water. The follow up was named Wide Awake.

2002 : Milk Inc came back with a brand new track, Sleepwalker. The follow-up was entitled Breathe Without You and it was out on October. The new album was planned for 2003.

2003 : in May, their new single called Time was out. In August, they announced they would make a cover of a song from A-Ha : The Sun Always Shines On TV. The videoclip was shot in France on the 14th September.

In October, their brand new album was released. Entitled Closer, it contained 14 songs. The 5th track called I Don't Care was a duet between Linda and Silvy De Bie (from Sylver). The 13th track Blown Away was the only instrumental song on this album. The last track Maybe was a ballad sung by Linda and Regi, who appeared for the first time on a Milk Inc song. In November 2003, Milk Inc. performed in Poland.

2004 : The new single from Milk Inc. was I Don't Care. The video was shot at Club Atmoz at Hasselt. The new single jumped to #3 in the Belgian charts at the end of March. The Sun Always Shines On TV will be released soon in Australia.

The follow-up was entitled Whisper, and in October it peaked to #1 in Belgium. The same month, Milk Inc released their first DVD in Australia. It contained 18 videos, as well as an accoustic set of 5 songs (I Don't Care, Oceans, Walk On Water, Don't Cry and Maybe, recorded especially for this occasion) and a few extras.

2005 : Milk Inc's new singles was entitled Blind. The video was recorded on the 14th of April. The single was released on the 2nd of May, it peaked up to #5 in Belgium. Milk Inc should record a new album this summer.

In September, Regi released a solo single entitled No Music. It went directly #16 in the Belgian charts. The following month, Go To Hell was released.

2006 : in May, the new single Tainted Love (a cover version of the famous hit) was released. "We were trying some melodies and suddenly we had something on which Tainted Love fitted perfectly. Furthermore, this song is actually a combination of 2 well-known songs."

The fourth album Supersized was out in September 2006. It was called after the mega-concert at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. Next to Whisper, Blind, Go To Hell and the new song Tainted Love, there was 8 brand new songs + 1 bonus song. The new single was entitled Run.

A live CD of the Supersized concert was available just after the concert. It could be ordered until October 31st, afterwards this collector item would not be available in the shops. It was actually included with the concert DVD released a few monthes later.

2007 : they earned a golden record for their album Supersized. Milk Inc left their former records company to enter ARS. Their new single Sunrise was out on June 22nd. Together with director Sven Coumans a video was shot in Alicante. In this video you can see a handsome guy escaping from prison and trying to find Linda. During his search, he has to deal with an FBI agent, a part played by Regi Penxten himself. The next album is planned for Spring 2008.

End of September, a new Best Of CD was released, the day before the 3 Supersized 2 concerts. The one and only new track of the best of was Sunrise. During the Supersized concert, a new track called Tonight was presented to the fans, was their next single and its videoclip was made from parts shot during the concert. Linda also proved her drummer talents.

Like almost every year, Milk Inc were nominated at the TMF Awards for best videoclip and best dance artist (Regi as solo artist was also nominated). And like every year, they won the best dance artist award.

According to rumors, and due to legal rights problems between the records comapnies, there should not be any official DVD of the Milk Inc Supersized II concert this years. All remains to the fans is the 10-tracks DVD attached to P-Magazine, or the TV-recording of the concert broadcasted on Jim TV in December.

Linda Mertens and Jessy recorded together a new single entitled Getting Out, released in December under the name Linda & Jessy. The Supersized 2 concert was broadcasted on Jim TV in December.

2008 : the next and third Supersized series of concert was renamed Milk Inc Forever, from the name of their forthcoming album which was released with the new single of the same name on June 9th.

The video clip for Forever was shot in Germany on May 27th and 28th. Regi explains "It's going to be a very special video for Forever. The story is about Linda and me in the filmstudio. During the song we'll move in a tangle of film and on those filmroles there are other new images. In short, it's going to be something very special, very trendy".

The next single was entitled Race and it was once again a hit in their home country. In October, they won 3 awards at TMF awards (best dance, best live & best album Forever)
