The legendary Sex Beat club opened at Shady Lady’s in January 1990, later moving to The Wee Red Bar at Edinburgh College of Art before being famously closed for “open and out-of-control drug taking” in February 1991. Digitised from the original cassette, this recording features 45 minutes from each of the resident DJs, Chris Low & Grant Whiteside, spinning a selection of electro, techno and the hard EBM and New Beat sounds emerging from Belgium and Germany which the club pioneered and became celebrated for.
