Have You Heard? – (62) Two electronic gems, by Redlight and Beat Spacek

Two great electronic tracks I’ve heard recently on the ever-brilliant BBC Radio 6 Music.

Redlight I know nothing about. Just heard “Gold Teeth” on Tom Ravenscroft last Friday and thought, I must have this. Robotic electro describes it.

Beat Spacek, “Modern Streets”,  I first heard on the 6 Music playlister, where the DJs all put a few current favourites on a playlist on Spotify. The music is a tremendous summary of what’s going on these days, outside the mainstream pop world. The Beat Spacek sound reminds me a bit of the music of The Acid, whose “Liminal” album I loved last year. I downloaded the album, “Modern Streets” and really like the variety, as well as that throbbing, distorted bass, which permeates the music.. You can make a link, too, with those artists like Burial, who make music that conjures up images of London at night, waiting for the night bus in the rain.

I hope these YouTube links work outside the UK. If they don’t, both tracks are really worth checking out by other means, if you like leftfield electronic beats.

  1. Nice. BTW, have you heard The Glitch Mob or Pretty Lights? You might like those.

    ‘m not the biggest beat fan but Beat Spacek sounded good. I liked Gold Teeth by Redlight better, and the video was amusing!!!
