Premiere: Gary Beck – “Tomorrow You’ll Know”

gary beck soma

Slam‘s Orde Meikle and Stuart McMillan are techno trailblazers. As DJs, producers and proprietors of Soma Recordings, they’ve created groundbreaking, highly influential tracks like “Positive Education,” curated gems including an early version of Daft Punk’s “Da Funk” and have fostered the careers of too many producers to mention. And that’s only a snapshot of their credentials.

On Soma’s Slam Present: Transmissions: Glasgow, the Scottish duo shine the spotlight on like-minded techno artists living in their beloved home city. Glaswegians Clouds, Harvey McKay, Edit Select and Hans Bouffmyhre are but a few of those who contributed tracks to the compendium.

In advance of the release of Transmissions: Glasgow, we’re thrilled to world premiere Gary Beck‘s floor rocker “Tomorrow You’ll Know.” Those who follow techno will know Beck’s star has been on the rise for some time — his brilliant Bring A Friend album is incidentally Soma’s 100th release — thanks to his raw, edgy and evolving sound which epitomizes the essence of the label’s musical wanderlust.

Says Beck of the cut, “This is a track I made a couple of years ago, it’s a very versatile track and can be played at pretty much any point of a set. I still play it to this day and it never seems to sound old. It’s a pleasure to release it on the Transmissions: Glasgow compilation.” Hit the play button below and discover Beck’s timeless effort.

The 15-track Slam present Transmissions: Glasgow compilation is released June 29, 2015.

Track of the Moment: Slam’s “Minor Interruption” (Bek Audio)

Slam Minor Interruption

Two decades into their musical partnership known as Slam and Scottish techno titans Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle’s show no signs of slowing down. “Minor Interruption” on Gary Beck’s Bek Audio is the twosome’s latest monster, a full-on assault brandishing a ginormous kick drum powerful enough to take down Godzilla. While it’s currently en vogue in some genres for a track to be all about the climatic breakdown, this beast is thankfully unrelenting from the first note and finds the Slam boys once again driving with the petal to the metal. As a synth line chugs away and a nasty bassline bumps along, this demon continually builds and is hell-bent on taking no prisoners. A minor interruption has never been more appreciated.
