Our good friend Sterio dropped a new gem today. On “I.T.Y.W.I.W.” Sterio combines electronic drums, synths pads and a deep bass with a masterfully flipped, but rather unusual acapella, namely “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls. Yup, you heard right: The Spice Girls. The result is a club-banger that is guaranteed to make your body move.
Also, be on the lookout for Sterio’s debut EP “Transmissions” which will be released soon by Jakarta Records.
After kicking off “Collision Remixed” with Submerse’s remix earlier this week, Cascade Records dropped the second reinterpretation, Suff Daddy’s take on “Uturn Meon”.

Berlin-based beatsmith Bluestaeb is back at it again. On his latest track “Nothin’ Wrong / Guilty Pleasure” Bluestaeb pairs electronic drums, deep basslines and synth-soundscapes with vocal bits from Marvin Gaye. The goodness is available for free download via Bluestaeb’s bandcamp here: https://bluestaeb.bandcamp.com/

We’re more than happy to say, that the second installment of our “Ode To..” series is coming July 17th. With “Ode To Delia” we intend pay tribute to Delia Derbyshire and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. In addition to the sampling aspect, we wanted to incorporate the Radiophonic Workshop’s overall approach towards creating and manipulating sounds.
To cut the waiting time short, here’s a video and audio preview:
Just in case you’re not familiar with the work of the Radiophonic Workshop, here’s some information on the subject matter:
Created in the late 1950′s, the members Radiophonic workshop crafted beautiful futuristic sounds with the use of tape-recorders, by cutting up individual notes and manipulating the sounds in various ways. Thus, laying the foundation for rudimentary sampling techniques with very limited equipment. Without a doubt, the work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop has had an enormous impact on modern electronic music in general. To worship their legacy and influence, we decided to dedicate the latest “Ode To…” compilation to Delia Derbyshire and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
The Beatgeeks are talking beats with our good friend Sterio. Be on the lookout for his EP “Transmissions” set to be released soon via Jakarta Records. Also, catch him at the Splash Festival as part of the MPM vs. Jakarta Beat Battle. Shit’s gonna be epic.
“Second Chance” is S. Fidelity’s first single off his new EP “Five to Five”, which is available for Pre-order now via Feelin Music and Vinyl Digital.
From nine to five, from five to nine.
As soon as the dayjob is done, the formal shirt is replaced by a hoodie – buttons get pushed rhythmically. Nighttime brings out the Mr. Hyde in Dr. Jekyll and the S. Fidelity in this Swiss boy living in Berlin.
With his first EP “Five to Nine” S. Fidelity carefully compiled a small collection of gems kept secret – until now. Over the course of 8 tracks, he showcases a wide variety of styles, ranging from laid-back instrumentals to rap and futuristic neo-soul.
For the completion of his debut EP, the 22-year-old beatmaker joined forces with the Berlin singer LaNó and Tokyo’s Tajima Hal on one track and Rob Really from Moontroop featuring on a second one. The features add a complementary touch to S. Fidelity’s compositions and thereby contribute to the complete range of his sonic spectrum.
