After Beam Up's dubwise exploration LP, "Terra Sonica", comes the first in a series of 7" singles based on 70s roots reggae riddims. All tracks are constructed from the ground up in Beam Up's Berlin-36 studio. There's an organic feel from the tracks which were made with up to the time technology.

Astronomy Dub is a relaxed & elastic one drop meditation on a common dubwise theme - outer space and heavenly bodies. Featuring sonifications of astronomical phenomena and Beam Up’s muted horn playing.

(As long as there is you riddim)

Hanabi Dub combines Japanese fireworks, insects & kodo drumming with Terrence Bowry’s lyrics on living in Shanghai when the 2011 Tsunami hit Japan.

Review: "The Wire" Oct 2013 by Steve Barker
Brian May (aka DJ Delay and Sonical)
re-enters his Beam Up persona to follow up
2010’s Terra Sonica with a more dubwise
project in the form of a series of 7" singles
based on 1970s-style roots reggae riddims
built in his Berlin-36 studio. “Hanabi Dub”
combines FX of Japanese fireworks from
the Takeshi Kitano film, insects and Kodo
drumming with the soul vocals of Terrence
Bowry meditating on living in Shanghai
when the 2011 tsunami hit Japan. It’s a
bass-heavy fronted mix with the riddim
a take on Larry Marshall’s Studio One
staple “Throw Me Corn”. The flip’s a more
meditative affair with an even more deeply
resonant bass sound, a converted one-drop
riddim inspired by Glen Brown’s version to
R&B singer Timi Yuro’s “As Long As There
Is You”. An ancient, distant muted horn is
set against an occasional groaning synth
and light sprinkles of undetermined sonics,
apparently a meditation on outer space and
heavenly bodies.
