on some maxi 12s they make beatless versions or synthepellas, but I’ve been discovering more tunes that don’t really have a standard 4/4 kick, but still manage to hold, move, and wring-out a dance floor…
thread was also in conjunction of a memory of hearing stacy pullen dj in 97? and there was a beautiful section near the end of his set where for 20mins he played about 6 different beatless techno things (kenny larkin i suspect) and no one batted an eyelid, it was just raving as per usual,
here’s a couple of beatless bangers, has anyone got any others?
slow burning low end monster
and this thing is magic, reminds me of jungle ala early goodlookin releases
