Beesmunt Soundsystem - Bodyshape EP [PETS045]

by beesmunt soundsystem



Beesmunt Soundsystem is swiftly becoming a Dutch institution… Commanding the controls at their own events in Amsterdam’s legendary Paradiso by the age of 18, David van der Leeuw and Luigi Vittorio Jansen carved their path as discerning selectors long before they established their own studio.
Emerging into the world of production in 2012, their breakthrough cuts arrived on Soweso Music and were received well across the board… “All Day”, in particular, was featured on Breach’s critically acclaimed “DJ Kicks” mix. Earlier this year their appearance on Bristol’s Just Jack has won them more friends, with “How I Wish” scoring them summer appearances across Europe. Now making their debut on Pets with three immutable examples of pristine production dynamics, their friendlist and schedule is set to develop even more. Get to know…
“Body Shape” speaks with a universal techno tongue; industrial strength beats plough and plunder with clanks and bangs while a dominant detuned synth hammers home an insistent riff that will resonate across the widest realms of house and techno.
“Amsterdam 808” pays homage to their home city’s techno legacy and develops these dark motifs further. Naked rim shots batter a hypnotic message into your psyche over the bubbling kick/bass combo. A series of claps builds into a hook that bounces like a tightly coiled spring. Stark, sharp and unyielding, this is a timeless exercise in 808 science that smoulders with a tribal sense of physicality.
Finally we hit “Sugar Square”, and it’s as sweet as it sounds. Sitting happily between Underground Resistance and Jam & Spoon, it taps into the deepest roots of slinky, emotive electronica. Twinkling with every melodic flourish, glistening with every rhythmic twist; it’s the ultimate complement to the darkness that precedes it and showcases the duo’s broadest skills and abilities.
