Soma Records present a compilation of tracks from the last year, mixed by Gary Beck in what is his first ever commercially available mix CD.After the successful 20th anniversary celebrations, Soma continued with their output right through 2012, forging ahead with new and old artists alike. 2012 saw the debut album from Gary himself that immediately made its mark on the techno world, demonstrating his talent as not just a techno producer but as an artist.
Gary’s mix is a good example of why he has become one of the busiest DJs around. Kicking things off with Deepchord’s dubbed out ‘Tonality Of Night’, Gary quickly picks up the pace, moving fervently through tracks from Joe Stawarz, Heiko Laux & Steve Rachmad into Claude VonStroke’s mix of Scott Grooves’ ‘Mothership Connection’. Mark Henning’s infectious ‘You’re Digging Into Me’ funks things up before launching head first into the peak of the mix with Pig & Dan and Mark Reeve tracks doing the damage along with Gary’s own ‘Algoreal’. Exclusive to the Soma21 compilation is the Christian Smith & Whebba remix of the eternal Funk D’Void classic ‘Diabla’. As the mix begins to wind down, Gary finishing off with Mattias Tanzmann rework of Silicone Soul’s ‘Right On, Right On’ whilst Gary closes on Ricardo Villalobos’ interpretation of Envoy’s ‘Seawall’.
