shows // Beat Beneath
Beat Beneath presents a selection of the best electronic and dance music, ranging from straight-up dancefloor killers to abstract electronics and plenty in between. Hosted by Simon Bryan and regularly featuring guest selections from Glasgow and beyond.
sleep is for the week
Had a couple of seriously good guest shows last month but now I'm itching to do a proper 2 hour mix myself especially with all the good music that's been emerging lately.
Expect new gear from Mathematics, Strength Music, Horizontal Ground, Kangding Ray, Planetary Assault Systems, Christina Vantzou, plus plenty other good shit.

beat beneath with zachary (missing persons club)
Taking things a bit more local this time, MPC partner-in-crime Zach is coming down to play some tracks with me.
The usual remit of underground electronic music will be relaxed a bit so expect to hear some funk, soul and other goodness alongside some of the finest house selections this side of Woodlands Road.

beat beneath presents nicuri (strength music, nyc)
There's an array of guest spots lined up for Beat Beneath in 2014 so it's time to present the first: New Jersey native Ruben Candelario a.k.a. Nicuri.
Nicuri's friends and associates include the likes of DJ Qu and Joey Anderson, and he's been refining his own take on that dark, deep raw house sound that's been consistently coming out of the tri-state area in recent years. He already has several releases to his name including contributions to the always high-calibre Exchange Place series and 2012's Paradigms EP on Bliq; and his A Lucid Dream/Moments EP is dropping imminently on UK label Mora Music.
Those in the know are predicting big things for Ruben in the coming year, and it's my pleasure to present an exclusive one hour mix from him on this edition of Beat Beneath.
If you're into this then you may enjoy the next Missing Persons Club night featuring DJ Qu, 28th Feb at La Cheetah

After last time's 2013 retrospective it's now time to go back to business as usual.
Lining up some guest appearances for the coming year which you'll hear about in due course but tonight it's two hours of myself taking you through some fine electronics.

bb's best of 2013
Happy new year to all!
As has become something of a tradition for Beat Beneath going in to the new year, it's time for a quick snapshot of some of the best music from the previous one.
It's been another pretty special year in the realm of electronic music - some of the most promising labels and artists to emerge from last year have gone on to own 2013, the old favourites haven't let up, and there remains a steady stream of new and exciting artists making their marks.
Regrettably there's a whole load of music that I won't be able to fit in, which I'll no doubt speak a bit about over on beatbeneath.com once the show is done, but nonetheless I'm going to cram as much as possible into the two hours so expect a whistle-stop tour through some of the last year's finest messy house jams, straight-up techno bangers, moody grime instrumentals, ambient synthscapes and whatever the heck else has come out of this mad year.
