In this band he played the keyboard. Afther some releases they made big success in Belgium with Dutch spoken songs like Zomernacht and 4 full albums followed, all with dutch verses. But Pat Krimson wanted more...
Beside Leopold 3 heb began the make his own songs with english verses. After making some releases he desided to call some help to produce new tracks, so Olivier Adams came to work with him, first as Adams & Krimson. But soon they knew they needed a better name for this project and so, in 1991, 2 Fabiola was born. Now they needed a dancer on the stage. First they had Fabio that stayed until after the songs Magic Flight was a succes, after a while Zohra was on the scene. In 1994 together with Zohra they made the monsterhits Lift U Up, it first became famous in Spain and Italy and after that over the whole world. It's a public secret that Zohra didn't sing the song texts but Karen Boelaert did, who also did the singles of Milk Inc. New success followed with the songs I'm on Fire, Freak Out, Magic Flight, Flashback, Sisters & Brothers and Feel the Vibe. In the mean while Zohra and Pat Krimson made some solo-tracks.
Beside his solo tracks, he worked together with a lot of new artists. New project came on the scene and old project where given new faces.
He needed a break after everything went faster than a bullet train. He moved to Ibiza to live their, for aproxiamatly 10 years, and enjoying life.
After 10 years living on Ibiza he went back to Belgium, more specifically Zonhoven, to produce some new songs.
Because of the great distance, coopration between Katie Michaelson and Pat Krimson was difficult and the cooporation was stopped. This time Pat Krimson choose for 2 lead singers: Viola Furleo and Saskia Duerinck (quickly replaced by Loredana Deamicis) for the 2 Fabiola project. In 2008 they made and anthem for 'I Love the 90's - The Party' called We Love the 90s at the Ethias Arena in Hasselst. Their real first single Blow Me Away was released at the end of 2008 with a little success.
First his new releases didn't make him a fortune until in, 2014, he made a big comeback as 2 Fabiola feat. Loredana with the song 'She's After My Piano'. This song was one of the Belgian candidate songs for the Eurovision Song contest in 2014. It ended 2nd in the nominations. In the mean while Loredana made some solo tracks that where released on the album 2 Fabiola - Evolution.
Patrick has a relationship with the 2 Fabiola singer Loredana since 2015. Professionally they work together from 2008. Though there is a big age difference of 21 years between them, this has never been an issue. Before Patrick met Loredana he was together with Jolijn. The relationship didn't stand long but Jolijn and Patrick do have a daughter called Troy. Before that Patrick was in a relationship with Ann Vervoort and ex-singer of Milk Inc. a production by Regi, the other Belgian King of Dance. Ann died in the night of 22 April 2010 at the age of 33.
Pat krimson and Regi know each other a while back from the early 90's. Their has always been a small clash between the two DJ's and producers but in a funny way. From 1995 until 2000, Pat Krimson ruled the Belgian Dance Scene with his solo project and 2 Fabiola.
After he moved to Ibiza, Regi took over the throne in the Belgian dance world with his project as Milk Inc. and his solo project as Regi. The media often exaggerate the clash between these 2 deejays. In fact Regi and Patrick do not have any dispute. In the early days they even worked together.
Pat Krimson announced, on the Belgian radio channel MNM, that the project 2 Fabiola will end in 2013. Normaly the end of 2 Fabiola was planned in 2020 but than corona came. The reason is that Pat Krimsonhas to many work as DJ and his body is coming to an end. He often gets in bed with a painkiller
