Teaming up with clubs and labels to preserve beautiful electronic dance music history

According to an article from DJ Mag, the Époque label is a direct offshoot of the nightlife culture and heritage in Belgium. Belgian dance music, especially the discotheque scene, had one of their most powerful and unforgettable eras in the late ’90s and early 2000s. In the online archive of Époque, there is a short summary about one of the most popular Belgian dance clubs, Cherry Moon, located in Lokeren. The club is so instrumental to the continuing progress of Belgian dance music that De Witte even created a mix to pay tribute to the club; this mix is also available on Apple Music.

To further celebrate the creation of Époque, Charlotte De Witte will unveil her remake of the 1998 Belgian techno hit by Push, ‘Universal Nation’. The original ‘Universal Nation’ was initially a B-side for one of Push’s different projects but it became an iconic track enjoyed by millions of electronic music fans around the world. The release of the remake will occur on January 25th. Finally, check out the online shop of Époque to find apparel that celebrates Cherry Moon.
