In 1989 Ward and Van Hees formed their own band named after the radio show, but to avoid confusion with the eponymous German new wave band, they signed their records with Liaison D or Liaisons D. Assisted by Jan Van Den Bergh (Mappa Mundi, Kumulus, Buzz), Marcos Salon (Outlander), Frank De Wulf (B-Sides, World Party II) and J.P. Ruelle, Liaisons D released a solid string of EP’s and the album “Submerged In Sound” on USA Import Records between 1989 and 1992. We are extremely proud to present four tracks from the album here as a brand new EP, a must-have for fans of their unapologetically rough and ravy sound, testimony of a unique era in Belgium’s electronic music history.

STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: Retrospective from these Belgium club goths. Inspired by acid house, rave and hardcore; the Belgium scene took these templates and configured them to their own Up All Night mentality. Liasons D, as well as showcasing these sounds on one of the only commercial radio shows playing this sort of music, recorded these early blueprints between '89 - '92. They still sound hot today!
