Rex Rebel
Rex Rebel is de nieuwe spraakmakende, trendy en onbevangen revelatie in de Belgische elektronische music scene, gevormd door Sam Bettens, Reinout Swinnen en Wim Van der Westen. Sam gaat sinds kort door het leven als transgenderman na een meer dan rijkelijke carrière als Sarah Bettens, het gezicht en de stem van K’s Choice. Sam is dus niet aan zijn proefstuk toe, maar wilt op dit keerpunt in zijn leven het geweer van muzikale schouder wisselen. De ambitie is groot! Rex Rebel klinkt enorm speels, absoluut catchy, poppy en dansbaar. Bas, keys, drums en een stem in transitie... een combinatie die ieders nieuwsgierigheid zal aanscherpen.

Although K's Choice has been the common thread of his career, Sam has always embodied change in his musical endeavors. Apart from four highly successful solo albums, he also made musical contributions to several soundtracks and documentaries, appeared on over thirty major label compilations and contributed music or vocal performances for a whole series of multi-platinum artists. And now again, in 2019, by starting Rex Rebel, Sam has reinvented himself. This new band is nothing less than another expression of Sam's inexhaustible creativity.

No more than a month ago, the band released their first single 'Big Shot'. The single was immediately received with open arms by the national radio stations in Belgium, followed by remarkable TV appearances of the band in leading talk shows in the Benelux. ‘Big Shot’ is a song that glorifies success, quantified by fame and fortune. And even though the song is supposed to question that very notion, it also exudes a confidence that Rex Rebel has, that they belong in the big leagues and that they won’t stop until they get there.


On February 28th, Rex Rebel's debut album 'Run' shall be released through V2 Records, accompanied by the band's first club shows in Brussels and Amsterdam. Rex Rebel has begun to pave the way to the top and… the road to Coachella, a 15 min drive from Sam’s home and one of the band's lofty goals.
