In 1988 Patrick Claesen, aka Pat Krimson was hired as promotion boy
at Antler-Subway Records in Aarschot, Belgium. At that time nobody could
have dreamed that this man from Limburg would become one of the driving
forces behind this company. He set up a successful record
label called Dance Opera and founded the popular Flemish band Leopold 3. Patrick wanted to get his share of the dance hype and therefore began to produce
dance products on his own label. One of these products was The Milky Way,
the first production under the name of 2 FABIOLA (another tribute to the Belgian royal family). It was not until 6 years
later that another record of 2 Fabiola (apart from Kunta Kinte, featuring
Blackanova) was released, Play This Song. This extremely catching dance
track soon turns out to be a mega formula for their success on the Spanish and
Italian music market. The results were 4 weeks number one and for about 6 months
a ranking in the official Spanish top 10. This Mega formula didn't pass unnoticed
in the Italian charts either: #15 in the official Italian charts. Meanwhile,
2 Fabiola came to be a real band, gradually conquering the European continent
with its extravagant looks and strong live-act.
