Beta Hector: Sunbeam Insulin
Buy! - (Tru Thoughts)
Brighton, UK-based DJ/producer/bassist Simon Hill (aka Beta Hector, formerly of soul revivalists Baby Charles) debuts with a top-notch set of beat-centric grooves that skillfully tackle psychedelic future beats, brooding trip-hop, raw cinematic funk, boom-bap hip-hop, and dancefloor-baiting electro/disco with a soulful, enthusiastic flair. The well-balanced guest vocalists include female singers (most notably British siren Dionne Charles on "Playback," "Creepin'" and "Morning Train") and MC Shane Hunter on the hip-hop flavored "Oracle Bones" and "Thousand Yard Stare." 9/2/2011 - Alex
