Even some German Beatheads might have not heard the name of The Beep so far. But his portfolio actually speaks for itself: Without ever bragging about it, he already worked with German MCs like Casper, Audio88 or Yassin and took part in Colognes infamous Beat BBQ as well as the SAE Beat Fight. After releasing his second Beat Tape „Secondhands Vol. 2“ on Sichtexot label in 2013, he now continues in the same constellation to put out his first album „Reykjavik“ in January. Therefor the equipment nerd took his former mostly sample based sound one step forward. He worked with acoustic instruments like sansula, glockenspiel or guitar and combined them with vintage synthesizers and the impulsive patterns of his drum computer. The new sound he created doing so can be defined somehow in the tradition of producers like Bonobo or Clams Casino. Atmospheric, hypnotic and nostalgic without losing itself in pathos or HipHop clichés. „Reykjavik“ is a soundtrack for the cold, inspired of idyllic Iceland and solitary nights at the home studio. The 12 track album is realeased on January 20th, 2014, on vinyl and digital via Sichtexot. Besides the album teaser a video will be published soon. With this album Sichtexot family once again demonstrates its diversity.
