(CD version included) An inestimably valuable and definitive collection of 1988 Belgium club classics anthems produced by Rembert De Smet including hard-to-find, unreleased and rare materials. 2 black vinyl sleeved into a reversed silkscreened cardboard, including a CD version. Teasing sticker on the front with shrink wrapping on top.

New Beat, the musical genre:
A late 80's/early 90's short-lived, local and amazing underground dance movement from Belgium. It main influence is to be found in the EBM/New Wave/Industrial musical genre (Throbbing Gristle, Neon Judgement, Front 242) with a typical extra slowed down tempo signature. New Beat ruled the dancefloors, eventually evolved to harder sounds, took the charts by storm without the help of the radios. It was independant and out of control before being commercially exploited to death by the most unscrupulous and then collapsed.

Ro Maron, the Artist:
Before the explosion of the New Beat scene in 1988, multi-instrumentist & producer extraordinaire Rembert De Smet enjoyed popular success with his group 2 Belgen.
He was one of the early bird to got on the New Beat train, locked himself deep into the studio and started producing music non-stop: sometimes solo under the monicker Ro Maron or Agaric, sometimes with collaborators like Ferre Baelen from TC Matic or Maurice Engelen from Praga Khan.
Producing without a pause and getting it out a week after was the plan, as one knew that this golden era wouldn't last forever, only some of the music would.
Mainly released on now defunct labels like Kaos Dance, Antler Subway, Dance Opera or MG Records to name a few, the best of it and beyond is compiled here.

Musique Pour La Danse, the Label:
