shows // Beat Beneath
Beat Beneath presents a selection of electronic and dance music aimed at both clubbers and home listeners. Hosted by Simon Bryan, Beat Beneath showcases the breadth of modern techno and house music as well as some more laidback or abstract cuts, and standout releases from all electronic genres.
the boy is back in town
After a somewhat sporadic 2013, Beat Beneath is now back on the fortnightly schedule. Myself at the controls for two hours this time around and I'll be bringing some serious tunes as always, from slow luscious house to skittery bass music and plenty in between.

tales from the dirty south
As you might have noticed I've been unable to make it to the studio since about May but tonight I've endeavoured to be in the right place at the right time. Just me for the two hours this time, cos I've missed it eh...

bb v stevie beats (gil scott heron special)
It's time for something a bit different to the usual electronic beats (although electronic beats of course won't be entirely absent...) - the day after this Sunday's show will mark the two year anniversary of Gil Scott-Heron's passing. A musician much-admired here at Beat Beneath HQ, it seems appropriate to celebrate the date with a show dedicated to the man's music. Active from the end of the 1960s right until his death and encompassing everything from his trademark minimally-accompanied spoken word pieces, to emotive soul and jazz songs, and to his recent forays into electronic music with top collaborators, the man's left a huge legacy of great music.
I'm bringing in Stevie Beats, a man much more qualified than myself to pick out his favourite GSH selections. This show will not be televised, but it will certainly be broadcast 8pm-10pm Sunday 25th May.

beat beneath v julius funkhouser
The next installment of the Beat Beneath V series has been a long time coming - Julius Funkhouser will be taking to the decks on Sunday's show. Glasgow native Funkhouser (Dennis Seltzer-Grant) has been DJing around the city and running the Scenic Tones label for a number of years, recently putting on Missing Persons Club parties alongside yours truly, and as anyone who follows his soundcloud will know he's also prone to dropping some seriously grooving raw house beats of his own making on the regular.
Expect top quality deep house from JF in the first hour, which I'll then be complementing in hour 2 with some recently acquired vinyl including some heavier gear that I picked up in my recent trip to Berlin.

let conversation take place
As promised last time I'll be down at the studio despite temporal/geographical/sleep constraints. Two hours of music that I've bought and/or had stuck in my head for the last couple of weeks, and more. Tracks from from Vinalog, Ital Tek, Lumigraph and others.
