following gary becks hard-hitting remix of dj rush >she is fine< on bek014, he returns with an ep of solely his own productions. >rascal< brings forward two of his biggest tracks in recent times. the title track, >rascal< returns to garys more familiar sound with swelling pads andsynths clad in fading loops and textures. the track varies in intensity but maintains the groove, as it balances a peak time feel with an almost reflective ambiance. >video siren< is stripped and straight-up techno. it avoids over-complication by keeping the elements to an absolute minimum, highlighting his ability to create atmosphere, tension and drive, using a less is more attitude.

after his highly acclaimed remix of phil kierans >empty vessels< one of the most prolific and inventive producers in the current electronic music scene returns to electric deluxe: gary beck with an ep of his own, >egoist ep<. created sometime last year during a dark and stormy night in glasgow, the track with the promising title >egoist< was at first about to be forgotten. at some point >egoist< ended up in speedy j<s hands, who immediately decided to play it, >egoist< proved its name, ripping apart every dance floor every time it got dropped.

two essential techno players. the bek audio imprint hits double figures on this release, showcasing label-boss gary beck while also welcoming the sounds of mark reeve. mark reeve has made appearances on labels like soma, cocoon & traum and is an artist that gary has been supporting in many of his recent dj sets. gary beck sets the pace with >ars poetica<, the rugged opening track on this release. rasping off-beat bass and unnerving vocal samples join toughened drums and percussion to create a full-bodied fix. on the flip, mark reeve makes his first appearance on bek audio with his >fabula< track. a clean, smooth and grooving lesson in restrained and delicate production, fabula utilises icy cold atmospheres with warm and unwavering rhythm.
gary beck teams up with house legend and personal hero mr. g on their first col- laboration together. their efforts highlight both producers uncanny ability to create something that is instantly recognizable while distinctly individual. >all my people< brings a true and unadulterated house sound with a swaggering vocal sample and straight, crisp and assertive percussion. mark broom returns for his second appearance on bek audio with >stag<. steady, rol- ling techno shows the darker, head-down side of the bek imprint and marks produc- tions. intense percussion builds with the addition of a haunting synth leading to the break. stripped back to the bones the track jumps in with powerful effect.
having impressed with his stripped back, percussive remix of alan fitzpatricks gridlock track, drumcode are delighted to be giving gary beck his full debut on the label with his askaig ep. askaig illustrates becks understanding of the drumcode aesthetic as he contrasts the brutal force of a slamming kick, huge throbbing bass and crunchy pads with the delicate, ever-so-trippy plucked string hook via an arrangement that enhances and the raw power of the individual elements. on the flip side, mock tease completes the package with an end-of-night bridging track that combines the shimmering euphoric qualities of pulsing harmonics with splashes of sound effects and a marching, percussive rhythm that extenuates the epic feel of the track

worship recordings with another solid ep release, this time featuring cuts from chris udoh and gary beck. udoh is up first with >hear da muzik<, a driving house gem with a definite dubby flavor, as delays are left to run over solid drum patterns, strong chords, and a rumbling bassline. on the reverse, gary beck keeps the dubby house theme rolling with >stick to the reggae<, which has more of a skank to its rhythm, as dubby delays are again left to exploit stellar percussion, stabbing horns, and a wandering bassline.
