Now this is special. Beacon toast the release of new album 'Gravity Pairs' with a one off mix...
Tightly curated, the deft mixing makes the whole thing seem seamless, a remarkably succinct overview of their pleasures and passions.
The production duo open the atmospheric mix by contrasting Jean-Luc Ponty with Skee Mask, before dropping heavyweight techno thumpers from Shed and Nina Kraviz.
A subtle middle section pirouettes into a piece by jazz master Thelonious Monk, before Beacon round up matters with a touch of their own material segued into Black To Comm's beautiful 'Providence'.
Definitely something to treasure, this is far from throwaway - astute and considered, you can check it out below.
