shows // Beat Beneath
Beat Beneath presents a selection of the best electronic and dance music, ranging from straight-up dancefloor killers to abstract electronics and plenty in between. Hosted by Simon Bryan and regularly featuring guest selections from Glasgow and beyond.
After last show's excellent mix from Wheelman I'm happy to be taking control for the full two hours this time. Feeling a bit sketchy today so will try to bring the healing vibes...

beat beneath presents wheelman (stereotone)
For the latest Beat Beneath guest slot we've got another session straight from the club - this time from Jonathan Fernandez a.k.a. Wheelman, a skilled DJ and producer, lover of dance music of all flavours, committed supporter of the Glasgow scene and all round good guy. Most recently he's started the Stereotone night bringing the Thursday party vibes from himself and fellow locals and he's kindly supplied an excerpt from his extended set from its third instalment.
In the words of the man himself: "This is a live recording from the 3rd Stereotone night that are in La Cheetah on the 3rd Thursday of every month. It was just a few days after my 21st birthday so I decided to play all night on my own and do a loose retrospective of some of the records that have been important to me since I started mixing at 11."

Back to the newly refurbished studio after some time away, with an armful of recently acquired and somewhat unsorted records. Dark vibes forthcoming

In honour of the weekend's glorious 12-degree sunshine and the station's collective post-20th-birthday hangover I'll probably kick off with some disco/Afro-tinged stuff then move into some nice new club tracks I've picked up in lately in general...

bb's best of 2014
We've said goodbye to another pretty strong year in electronic music and now that there's been a bit of time to digest it all (I've always been one for waiting til the year's actually done!) it's time for the annual Beat Beneath end of year special.
It feels like a lot of the various approaches and sounds that have bubbled up over the last few years have been crystallising and maturing nicely in recent times and lots of great stuff has come out of it. Club music has continued to be pretty exciting and diverse taking in lots of other backgrounds and influences and the less beat-driven stuff is coming thick and fast too, and of course there's a good bit of back and forth between the two.
As always it's by no means exhaustive but this show will feature some of my favourite music released during the last year, enjoy...
