Black Beacon Sound is a producer from Oakland who makes the sort of house and techno that sounds like it's been through the wash a dozen times and got all faded and threadbare. (He also makes ambient beats as Elephant & Castle.) They may be states apart but you can hear the kinship with L.I.E.S. artist Terekke (check our Dummy interview from way back when). When You're Gone smells like someone you used to know, All In Blue slips down the back of the mind like brushed cotton but the real suckerpunch comes from MicroComposer – what a build! And I don't exclamation mark lightly on here I'll have you know. Download the full EP for free below.
