You’ve got to admire how Pan-Pot’s Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix are using their Second State label to nurture new talent. Most recently they issued acclaimed EPs from the wildly talented Berlin technocrat Michael Klein. Now they shine the spotlight on emerging techno DJ/producerBEC, who they established a relationship with a little more than a year ago. The Brighton born/London bred artist, who is currently based in Berlin and has been busy touring all over with the Second State crew, provides a snapshot of her buoyant sound on her upcoming Relentless EP. We’re pleased to world premiere “Nascent” from her debut tw0-track effort, a techy, funky monster brandishing bold basslines and wicked percussion. Hit the play button below, and make sure you check the full release on April 29.
UK native BEC’s Relentless EP on Pan-Pot’s Second State Audio is a techno twofer of the highest quality. The title track has punchy kicks and percussive rhythms interwoven with eerily melodic infusions and layered atop an astral ambience that is ready to rocket your ears to a higher state of consciousness. The equally impressive “Nascent” (listen to our exclusive track premiere here) is the perfect partner, the gritty tech crunch here contrasting the lush ride on the flipside. The aggressive bite and energy all but promise a packed dance floor. This is the perfect debut project from BEC. I’m looking forward to seeing where she takes us next.
