Boomkat Product Review:
**Massive 4CD boxset featuring classics from Zsa Zsa La Boum, Front 242, Confetti's, White House White, CJ Bolland, Public Relations and many, many more** Looking for all intents and purposes like one of those massive MoS anthem compilations, 'TSOB' charts the important and influential history of Belgian dance music over the last four decades through 60 prime cuts. It ranges from the foundational industrial dance music of Front 242 thru the New Beat era of Confetti's, Lords Of Acid and Liasons D and Erotic Dissidents to early '90s R&S techno epoch of CJ Bolland, Praga Khan and Outlander, also taking in scene classics such as Klaus Schulze's 'Signs Of Dawn' and Joey Beltram's world-taking 'Energy Flash'. For newcomers to Belgian dance music, it's well worth considering its influence far beyond its borders, when it was the sound that drove clubs from manchester to Chicago and Detroit in the pivotal '80s era, causing deep and lasting inspiration for everyone from Leyland Kirby to Trevor Jackson and Powell.
