Smoove and Turrell: It's You (Twin Beam remix) 

Even though Covid 19 has impacted music in a really negative way, it's been encouraging that pretty much all musicians have been working hard to get it to continue.

Amongst all the maelstrom, we're working on a new release for Q1/ Q2 next year. Whilst we've been in the studio, we were really happy to be asked to contribute a remix to Smoove and Turrell's album of remixes from their 'Stratos Bleu' LP. We're really happy with it- give it a listen!

Here's a weird video we made for it using the C&G ETC we use for live visuals:

Want To performance vid 

Earlier this year, we recorded a live performance video of 'Want To' [aided by camera and video-synth projection work by absolute diamond Jeremy Bradfield ('Brad Field') and edited to perfection by our own John Pope] to support the track's inclusion on  Mono Productions Sampler 18#1

If you haven't checked it yet, now is your chance to check it.

 

'Timelines' EP coming 29th April! 

On 29th April, we release new EP, 'Timelines'.  This is a four track release and our first featuring 3rd twin and absolute bass oracle, John Pope.

Furthermore, it features performance contributions from Ross Kerr, Aimee Lambert, Alex Saxon and John Turrell.

It's getting a released on bandcamp as well as usual digital purchase streaming outlets (Apple, Spotify, Amazon, etc) but in the meantime, check out the jaw dropping artwork produced by Booboo! Explore his work at:

More phone cam jams! 

Uploaded another little clip to youtube.
Taken on a mobile, so quality isn't exactly amazing. Still, you can make out Ath and Pope trading obscene shreds over a punchy electro beat and really who could ask for more?

Live footage! 

Our first gig with third twin, JOHN POPE took place in the ace venue Bar Loco in Newcastle.
Here is some footage (taken on a phone so video/ audio is a little shaky) of the ending of 'P6', a track from the forthcoming EP.
Check it out!

Rehearsing! 

A few gigs coming up for Twin Beam's new live set up (featuring John Pope: King of Bass) and also a Beamship ambient installation. 
We've been rehearsing in John's 'Jam Palace' room and recording some sessions we're going to upload to youtube.
Here's a clip of 'Jetski':

Two guys and a wall 

Talented photographer and artist Georgia Claire made us stay still in front of a brick wall while she took photographs of us. Our new years resolution of using good promotional pics is underway. 

Old Remixes: Smoove and Turrell  

So before Twin Beam, we did music and remixes under various names (e.g.: City In The Distance, Megasects, Arlo Delta). 

Thought we may as well repost a few of them here before they get lost in the internet wilderness forever. We may even put a playlist up on the music page at some point. 

So I believe this remix of 'Smoove and Turrell' comes from about half a decade ago! As I recall it was done as 'City In The Distance' who included additional member: the awesome producer/ musician/ composer Brendan Ratliff. Look him up as Echolevel or Syphus.  

Have a listen!
