Beckwith no time to waste





















Beckwith is a rising star in the EDM scene. Having mastered his technique at the world famous Berkelee School of Music, mentored by Grammy award winner Prince Charles Alexander (Mary J Blige, Puff Daddy, Usher, Sting) Beckwith has gone on to producing serious music with the aim of making an impact in the dance world. The likes of Crookers, Kele, Nervo and even Justin Timberlake are now calling upon Beckwith for his mixing skills.

With vocals provided by the salacious Ineabell, No Time to Waste definitely seeps with high quality production. It’s clear that Beckwith has been learning from the best. The utilization of the vocals is spot on and Ineabells voice is well suited to the funky house beat. It is not the most original sound in the world, and Beckwith demonstrates clear influence from house greats such as Armand Van Helden, Larry Heard and Steve Hurley. There is however great creativity going on here, and Beckwith demonstrates skills that can’t be taught with the build up and the perfectly balanced drop, the choppy synths bringing the crescendo along with the vocals.

No Time to Waste is not perfect, and it is definitely not quite up there with productions we’re used to hearing from the usual likes of Swedish House Mafia and Van Helden. But for a relative newbie to the scene, this is a remarkably accomplished production that shows clear intention and ability.

 

3.5 stars. A great effort, just needs that extra polish.

 

 

 

The single is released on DJs Are Not Rockstars on the 27th of September.

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
