More Info:

The Drumcode founder is measured when it comes to signing music to his own imprint, biding his time till the stars align. His last individual outing was 2015's 'Stone Flower' EP, which included the thrilling label favorite 'What You Need'. A succession of classy collaborations followed, linking with DC's most vital artists highlighted by 'Your Mind' with Bart Skils, proclaimed one of the best tracks of the last decade by Mixmag. An EP that gives a nod to uncertain times, while remaining resolutely positive, 'No Defeat No Retreat' was written during Beyer's fruitful production sessions during lock down. The opening track, 'Park People' sets the pace with an energetic, 80's nu wave creating the track's spine. It's hypnotic energy stems from a powerful synth riff and vocal sample culminating in a skillfully balanced track that neatly combines the old with the new. The title track is a study in contrasts, deftly crafting a muted, nagging vocal hook and infectious bass line into a slice of forward-facing, edgy techno. With it's subtle, undulating layers of melody building in the background, it ushers in an understated sense of euphoria, making it a perfect end-of-set mood-maker.
