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.
