szinzan I value Niccolo’s opinions but don’t feel quite so passionately about this one as them

Although it is a masterly grafted house ep, worth more than the sticker price.

Niccolo Brown On extremely rare occasions I will, quite by chance, come across a record so extraordinary, so distantly removed from the norm and yet undeniably the product of a recognised genre, I'm reminded in letters written a mile high why listening to music is not simply my hobby but my obsession. Beesmunt Soundsystem's "Afterglow" EP is just such a record. Oddly, I'm also well aware that there will be beat freaks everywhere who will shrug and say that "Afterglow" is just another house record with one or two minor differences (the vocal samples perhaps a touch too strident; the beats slightly, but not vastly unorthodox in places; the twang of a guitar replacing the whoosh of a synth; etc; etc) and give the familiar 'good, but not earth-shattering' verdict. I guess that's why discussions about the merits, or otherwise, of a particular record can very heated very quickly. You'll notice I haven't actually elaborated on why I think this EP is such a stupendous piece of work. The truth is, I don't know but whenever I play it
I get that undefinable feeling of simultaneously wanting to shout, dance, cry and evangelise about it. If you buy it as a result of what I've written and it leaves you cold then I can only apologise, but at least you'll be able to say you own a record by Beesmunt Soundsystem which is a pretty cool name by anyone's standards. Favorite track: Opium.
