Here at Not For Resale we love a good netlabel - quality free music is always welcome round our place - so what happens if that music also comes with some awesome artwork and a tidy horizontally slidy website? Well, we blow our top that's what.
Beko Records - http://www.beko-dsl.com- is a singles label offering free downloadable releases from a range of genred artists and they have a nice line in 2D block colour sleeve designs too.
Prettypretty artworks and lots of great releases; Memoryhouse, Wild Safari, Idiot Glee, Hanging Coffins – all cool! And loads more too, all free.
They have just released their first split single, called Beko Box 1, featuring Modern Witch, Mater Suspiria Vision and Madame O und Ihre Kopffilm Bande (XH of Mater Suspiria Vision and Cosmotropia de Xam)
The Mater Suspiria track is as you'd expect; Layers and phases of heavy reverb ghost drone delay strung up and freaked out to the max - same goes for the Cosmotropia collaboration too. But it's the Modern Witch track Cinema that breaks the mould and sends chills down the spine. It's utter genius. A dark groove locked down into a twisting cycle that shifts into some hi-frequency atmospheric spaces. It's a lot more hi-fidelity than their previous releases,and certainly a lot more 'House'. This is the sound of Witch House developing into a more interesting dimension. Between Balam Acab and this track, the next phase of this genre may well be happening right now.
