New Beat Trax + Old School Beats

Number Nine

At last, a vinyl re-press of the Classic New Beat tracks from N9 !

For years, the vinyl 12 inches from the N9 label were nearly impossible to find, and devoted Oldschool Techno & New Beat Fans were asking for represses.
The wait is over with this deluxe 2x12' compilation, on heavy vinyl in a beautiful Gatefold package. With 11 tracks spanning from the origins in 1990 to the rebirth since 2005, to the latest cover of The Maxx 's "Cocaine" in 2020, N9's most wanted releases are here, remastered by French wizard André Dalcan, ready to get your turntables at the right 33+8 mood, and get the white glove raised again! Also included is a redemption code to get the digital version of the compilation, plus a 21 min megamix by Igor Altman, and 4 additional unreleased tracks, including the infamous "Acid Reprise Extended", only played live until today!

What people say :
(About "French Theory - Lost On The Way To Destelbergen")
"For some, the essence of new beat was the gloomy atmosphere, the slowly ever hitting repetitive beats, all crawling further at lo RPM, resulting in a trancey ambience far away from the poppy scene. This “Lost On The Way To Destelbergen” (Destelbergen was the home town of legendary and long gone club Boccaccio) continues on that path and is one hell of a dark soundscape hitting firmly while hovering on slightly dramatic strings. Was it 1988 or 2008? Timeless track!" - Jean-Marc D, March 20th, 2008

(About "French Theory - Volume One")
"Fantastic release. Although it was released in march 2006, this is a real oldskool record. It sounds like the Hardbeat records from 1989 on Complete Kaos. Even the sleeve has that oldskool look. The first track "2006=1989" refers to Edwards and Armani's "Acid Drill" with a strong military shout in the intro. The second one "2006=1988" is a very dark new-beat track with some heavy basses. "Acid Reprise" is just brilliant! It's a pitty that it's so short. Please BomberOne, make some long version of this." - Buchla - May 12th, 2008

Number Nine Multimedia Lab. (a.k.a. N9) is an independent multimedia label based in France. It was originally intended as an outfit for the music releases of the eponymous French Techno-house band Number Nine. After a bunch of tracks in the early days of Techno & Rave explosion, N9 focused in the 90’ on graphic design, conceptual Typography (creating numerous commercial, free or shareware fonts), and heralded community project around Typography on the then-emerging Internet culture, with Point Central (1996) and Typeindex.org (1999).
Encouraged by the Oldskool Lovers community on Discogs.com's forum, N9 went back in the music area in 2005, and started releasing new tracks in the Electro-Techno or Electronica styles, as much as pioneering the revival of the Acid New Beat genre under the French Theory alias. Now 30 years-old, the label is still there and true to its underground mission : "In order of Chaos".
N9 is based in Paris, France, and headed by Guillaume-Ulrich Chifflot, who is also a multi-awarded creative director in Advertising.
