Release Infos

*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 the music out the week after was the plan, as one knew that this lucrative 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, primarly New Beat Boccacio's classic but also primitive and earlier sounds, rarer lazy rhythms, ambient house as well as the latter hardcorer rave sounds!

*New Beat, the musical genre:

A late 80's/early 90's short-lived, local and amazing underground dance movement from Belgium, forerunner of European techno dance music style alongside Italo-disco. 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, way before today's Slow House craze and early 90's Dj Screw's trademark of slowed-down rap mixes. New Beat ruled the dancefloor, eventually evolved to the harder sounds of rave music, 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.

*Musique Pour La Danse, the label and the COLLECTED serie:

COLLECTED is about... collecting definitive and inestimably valuable works by key dance producers from the past and digging with them classics, hard-to-find and unreleased gems from their vaults to bring them back for your sole and only pleasure. Stay tuned for more around New Beat and beyond.
