Brighton-born and Berlin-based BEC releases her new EP on Voight at the end of June. The Waveform Transmitter’s Ste Knight takes a listen to the breakbeat infused first track from the record.
BEC has, over the past two years, been whipping up a storm thanks to her releases on high-profile labels such as Pan-Pot‘s Second State imprint and Carl Cox‘ Intec Digital. It stands to reason, then, that Voight have picked up the Brightonian producer and will be releasing her new EP, Sines and Breaks, this June 29th. Fortunately for us, we don’t have to wait until then to hear it, as Bec has released a preview of the first track from the extended player, Sines and Breaks 01.
As you might expect, the main foundation upon which each track is built, is a sine wave, complemented by, as you might also expect, breakbeats. The result is an incredibly futuristic trilogy that embodies the ethos of Detroit techno through and through. The mood of the EP progresses as we move through the three tracks. Sines and Breaks 1 has a dreamy, ethereal quality to it, which segues nicely into the stunning, emotive pads included in Sines and Breaks 2, while Sines and Breaks 3 rounds the trio off with a touch of something a little darker. Unmistakable breakbeat techno.
You can take a listen to the first track of Bec – Sines and Breaks, below, before the full release drops on Voight on June 29th.
