Hi,

Just saw this announced for next month's International Film Festival Ghent (Belgium): a documentary film on New Beat and other Belgian electronic music.

The teaser https://vimeo.com/13052503 looks and sounds fun!

A couple of synths to be seen behind some interviewees: http://www.tsob.be/ (click "more info" for the pictures)

Any New Beat fans around here? spinning spinning spinning

No Front 242 or A Split Second? seriously, i just don't get it

I started in 1988 with R&S records who were pretty central to that scene.
In fact at 1.00 min that is my track...

I think New Beat was a huge thing in the evolution of techno.
Anyway, cool stuff

The director doesn't seem to focus on the Belgian EBM scene, but more on a (relatively short) transition period between EBM and techno.

Talking about A Split Second, their single "Flesh" became an early New Beat hit when dj's started playing it at 33rpm in stead of 45 hihi

Since we have the honour of an expert witness chiming in, I'll leave the R&S story to him wink

TBH that was probably a more interesting period. Early 80's stuff evolving into the club music that went HUGE throughout the 90's.

Then a second documentary is needed for artist like early 242 (+Daniel B. "Prothese" project), Neon Judgment, Snowy Red, Kuruki, Absolute Body Control/Klinik, Autumn/Twilight Ritual etc...

even within the global scene the Belgian artists were special and it's not all EBM...

I lived through new beat the first time (well to the extent it was played in the US) and don't have nostalgia, I think I liked more the German bands like Invincible Spirit etc. OR EBM crossover like Bigod 20... Lords of Acid I just thought was silly... and then real acid house was beginning to make itself known... overall don't care to revisit the new beat stuff.

the early 80's stuff I do revisit, that was special.

It's decent as far as music documentaries go. I'm glad it's streaming somewhere, I didn't want to spend 8 bucks just to watch it once.
