Playing the new beat & wave with DJ Wiertz & Reefteef, you can listen to our set here. Inspired by The Sound OF Belgium, a fabulous documentary about the new beat era in Belgium, early 80’s. The name ‘new beat’ was invented as an  underground danceable music style, well known at clubs and discos in Europe. It is a local crossover of EBM, acid and mid 80s underground house music. Legend has it that the Belgian New Beat genre was invented in the nightclub Boccaccio near Ghent when DJ Marc Grouls played a 45rpm EBM record at 33rpm, with the pitch control set to +8. The track in question was Flesh by A Split-Second.
