New beat

New beat is a Belgian electronic dance music genre that fuses elements of new wave, hi-NRG,[2] EBM and hip hop (e.g. scratching).[3][4] It flourished in Western Europe during the late-1980s.[1]

New beat spawned a subgenre called "hard beat" (a blend of EBM, new beat and acid house)[5] and became a key influence on the evolution of European electronic dance music styles such as Belgian techno, hardcore techno and gabber.
