I met up with a friend at a Bauhaus gig last month. We discussed New Beat as he'd DJ'd a mix tape for me some 30 years ago and I've lost the tape. I'm pretty sure he still has the mix though, as he recorded everything on DAT at the time. Anyway, I've been listening to New Beat again recently as it's the music that took me from guitar based music to dance/electronic.

This in particular is a classic. Lot's of cracking releases coming in from Belgium at that time and making me poor as fuck as I handed over my wages to 23rd Precinct and IMO some of the very best music to dance to because it's got sexual and horror elements that gives it that bit of sleaze and fun that's lacking in a lot of UK and US acid.

One of my favourites is Blind Vision - Don't Look at Me (g-mix) a genius chorus.

It's not pure new beat (it's got Cold Wave, EBM and Synthpop markers) and it's German but I've been playing Robotiko Rejekto ‎– Rejekto! (Perfekto Mix) a lot on and off over the last few years

Another total classic is The Invisible Limit - Push! which is right on borderline between Klinik style EBM and New Beat.

Zsa Zsa Laboum - Something Scary is a classic New Beat squelcher on the same label as Miss Nicky Trax

Jade4U - That boy (acid mix) is also a mega track that could just be coming out on Giallo Disco if you didn't know better. Reminds me of the Sisterhood.

The Mackenzie - Children Of The Future is another cracker that sits between the acid new beat styles and Split Second.

Boy Toy - Touch My Body is a hot n heavy erotik floor filler if I ever heard one.

I could go on forever, I've boxes and boxes of this sort of stuff but i'll leave it at that. I've even got a soft spot for slightly more straight forward Amercan sounding stuff like Erotic Dissidents.

The Twilight Sad - Videograms (Andrew Weatherall remix) absolutely the right stuff

The Twilight Sad - Videograms original is good too and without the Scottish accent I'd be just assuming it was a lowland Cold Wave track I'd missed,but really...how hard would it have been to stick the Weatherall remix on the other side of the admittedly cheapish ten? Does anyone really spend time looking at etched sides? I picked it up just assuming...as you do...

Btw does Videograms make anyone else think of Moonlight Shadow, somehow I hear it entraped in it's amber.

C.A.R - Daughters (Manfredas Remix) apparently I made a fool of myself dancing to this on hogmanay which is as good an endorsement as I can come up with. It's not a 'clever' remix, it's an olde worlde get you up dancing banger!

C.A.R. - All But... utter gem of a track off the same digital EP

Sex Beat - Sex Beat not a cover of that song but an old song one of my kids has taken a fancy to after she heard me playing it. Off an otherwise terrible Batcave compilation from 1983.

Keith Seatman & Douglas E Powell - My Morning Ritual beautiful track that spins a web betwixt pastoral prog and the fantastic Rr Foxx.

Arsenal - Half Control Santiago Durango's post Big Black band, clearly he got Roland in the divorce. I flicked past it today and thought I'd stick it on and thought this sounded really cool, like Big Black doing minimal wave.

Jade 4U - That Boy The acid mix is the well known one but I really like the original and most of the first side of her album. Sadly later on Jade/Nikkie was reduced to singing on tepid Euro bangers.

It's worth listening on for Valley of the Kings which is a handclap beset ancient Egyptian history lesson that's camp as row of tents but just endearing and a fantastic track to shake your Nefertiti to.

Executive Slacks - The Bus Total goth klub classik from my days in the early-mid 80's trenches. Skwonky poisoned minimalwave funk with guitar that's almost in the Big Black realm or (World Domination Enterprises) with it's sinus clearing obnoxiousness and a singer with a clear case of dropped on his head as a baby syndrome.

Chris & Cosey - Deep Velvet. Over Christmas my sister (as usual struggling for things to say to me) asked me what I'd dance to as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, which I've never seen beyond a couple of clips of Sophie Ellis Bextor on it.

No contest...though it would be too sexhey for pre watershed. :blush: :fp:

Isn't exactly a specific song, but I recently discovered Perturbator. It was recommended while reading through some comments of a Carpenter Brut video, and I gotta say: Perturbator might be my favorite electronic/synth-wave artist.

Perturbator - Payback Pursuit
