    Beam Up's debut 7" popped up last year following several years of mostly digital productions, with the 1st 45 receiving solid reviews worldwide. This is the second in a series of singles inspired by roots reggae vibes (mostly from the golden era of the 70s). Beam Up found inspiration here from 80s (subliminally so) and 90s basslines. Both tracks are constructed from the ground up in Beam Up's Berlin X-36 studio with an organic feel, using up-to-the-time methods.

    Divers
    Warm, heavy riddim underpinned with a steady kick drum that retains a reggae groove with the energy of steppers. Beam Up’s horns ride the riddim in an upful celebrationary style, with a foghorn trombone stretched to the point of breaking, taking the lead. Tasty dubbing. An excellent scoop testing cut!
    (Inspired by Massaneh’s Permissions riddim)

    Kick Off
    Summery rootsy steppers with classic eastern tinged melody driven by melodica, Rhodes and horns. If you listen closely you’ll hear a little vocal action coming through from the melodica. Beam Up worked out that the riddim was inspired by Dematerlalize during writing the track - proof of it’s earworm credentials! Tasty dubbing as always, right to the very last drop.
    (Inspired by the Roots Radics’ Dematerialize riddim)
