It is the ultimate testament of talent for an electronic artist to create a chilled soundscape at the same time as keeping the beat intricately complex, meandering and sharp.
The clear cut of the breakbeats which feed into the multi-layered mix of Beyond Black’s single “Living Sound” from his latest album does exactly that. In the absence of lyrics, the cinematic swells of the sound take care of the immersivity. If you’re looking for deftly mastered immersive beats to add to your playlists, look no further than Beyond Black.
