BEC returns to Second State after last year's Law Of Attraction with another solid dance floor techno EP. The title track and "Synchronicity" are solid, linear workouts that resound to dense, rolling drums, repetitive vocal loops and deft, filtered builds. "Are You Looking" is more uptempo and centres on detuned, noisy riffs and firing, layered percussion, while on "Play Drum", she goes down a techno wormhole, characterised by shimmering synths and evocative filters. Pan-Pot's label has also commissioned a remix of the title track from Dutch veteran 2000 & One, who doesn't disappoint with a version that features pitch-bent vocals and wild acid licks.
Following on from her EP earlier this year on Second State Audio, BEC is back with a killer follow up on Pan-Pot's label. The title track revolves around a rolling, skipping rhythm that provides the basis for repetitive vocal snatches and insistent chord stabs. It sounds fresh and unusual, like minimal house's precise sounds getting it on with the sub-frequency power of UK bass. "Tempest" also follows a similar path. It features a wailing synth riff and waves of percussion build over metallic kicks and filtered white noise. It's hard to put a handle on what type of music that BEC is making - and that's what makes it so exciting.
