In 1991, former King Street Sounds, BPM King Street Production released the compilation EP named "La Ronde", which includes the tracks by the hot artists in New York and Tokyo underground scene at that time.
This second compilation EP of the series was released in 1993 and it includes early productions of the New York artists/producer, such as Ken Carpenter、Khison, and Nick Jones, who are all known since early 80's,  as well as the deep tribute song for the legend, Larry Levan.

The artists who build the early club jazz, underground house scene in Tokyo, such as Manabu Nagayama and Toshihiko Mori aka Jazzadelic contributed their tracks to the EP as well.  It also includes the original version of "Beat Freak", which was later remixed by Blaze and Pal Joey and released from King Street Sounds.  This EP includes wide variety of tracks such as deep, jazzy, groovy and soulful vocal tracks.

This new re issue prioritises the highlights from the original release to ensure a much louder cut than the original pressing. Its also been completely re mastered for 2014.
