New Beat music? What ever happen to it?
Yeah, as some of you know New Beat music was a short lived music genre based mainly on Belgum that was based on Industrial and Acid House music I think. I can't say too much about it since I only know a but from It. as far as I know the genre lasted from 1984-85 to 90-91 then no one cared about it just like Dream House but Dream lasted lesser than New Beat I only know common artists like Confetti's, Rhythm Device, The Maxx and some short projects like Space Opera and Code-16 My question is what exactly caused it to die so suddenly. Was it lack of interest, some other genre like the dominating Eurodance killed it, or was it too undergroundnish for peoples knowledge.
There were even some even more obscurer sub-genres that It had like a more techno influenced faster sub genre (Don't know the name.) I think an example would be Abfahrt's 1989 classic: "Alone (It's Me.) as it's quite techno influenced and in my opinion. by the way shows very similar hypnotic melodies to early techno derived trance music.
