Mr. Beatnick

Don't Be Afraid, Tief Music, NTS

Mr. Beatnick is one of the UK’s bonafide musical diamonds in the rough. He is one of few hip-hop producers to newly enter the house and techno fold in the past few years and has really turned heads. During the late 00’s he released on labels like Far Out and Altered Vibes, and contributed remixes for artists like Azymuth and Atjazz, but it was the epic, string-laden house jam “Synthetes”, released on Semtek’s “Don’t Be Afraid” imprint in 2011, which proved the breakthrough moment for this talented beat-smith, receiving widespread critical acclaim and regular support from djs as diverse as Gilles Peterson, Scuba, Jamie XX, Paul Woolford and Deetron. The follow up “Sun Goddess” created a similar stir in summer 2012, and in 2014 he completed his house trilogy to great effect with the off-kilter sounds of the “Savannah” EP.

 

A year after that series finished (and following an outing on London party label Tief), he is back on DBA with arguably his best work to date “Formed in the Stance”, showing off a new thirst for the floor. At the same time, his NTS Radio show is going from strength to strength picking up plaudits from the likes of Four Tet, Gilles Peterson and Jamie xx.

 

An eclectic and forward-thinking dj, Mr Beatnick’s sets tread a frenetic and diverse path, weaving in influences across the house, techno, hip-hop, and UK underground scenes.
