Following ‘the most prolific year of his production career’, Adam Beyer starts 2024 with another EP, ‘Let’s Begin’, which takes influence from the ‘90s Drumcode sound with a modern touch. Looking backwards to go forwards, the three-track work kicks off with ‘Let’s Begin’ and sees Beyer lean on faster tempos and rugged rhythms, a track he’s dropped at recent gigs at L56 in Ljubljana and Fairground Festival in Hannover.
‘Computerized’ brings forth shades of hardcore-influenced vocals and synth lines reminiscent of early-2000s Frankfurt, proving popular at his NYE gigs in the States at Teksupport and Insomniac’s Countdown NYE event.
‘Red Room’ takes in subtle hints of classic four-to-the-floor grooves reminiscent of UK hard dance, before a synth section ramps up the intensity.
Adam Beyer: “This new three-tracker is on the rawer techno tip and is an ode to Drumcode’s earlier material. It’s a take on the ‘90s sound blended with new modern elements. For this release I wanted to take the Adam Beyer techno sound from that period and bring it up-to-date. It’s dirty with a new twist, direct and to the point. This project is not a statement, rather it’s a release that was inspired by the big techno shows I played in Europe this autumn - like Awakenings, Mayday and Timewarp.”
