Thavius Beck - Go Away

(Download) Big Dada BDDNL156, 2009-10-26

Go/Away is the first single from Thavius Beck's first solo album for Big Dada, but he's a name you should already know. Beck hooks up a trademark beat which bounces like a bomb on a trampoline whilst coming at the listener with a whole choir of disembodied voices and enough electronic squelch for the most demanding tech-head. Over it, Beck shows his skills as a lyricist, his calm, well-modulated, warm voice belying the anger and thoughtfulness of his lyrics. Away, runs euphoric vocal pads up against orchestral stabs and more lyrical science. Remix duties for the two tunes are dealt with by Flying Lotus and Offshore. A true renaissance man of hip hop, Thavius Beck sees no musical boundaries other than the ones he has already left behind.

Press Release :
"Go/Away" is the first single from Thavius Beck's first solo album for Big Dada, but he's a name you should already know. Fresh from co-producing Saul Williams' Niggy Tardust project with Trent Reznor and producing the whole of K-The-I???'s "Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" (one of Big Dada's critical slow-burners last year), Beck went back into the studio and made his own record, "Dialogue".

"Go!" is as good a way into "Dialogue" as any. Beck hooks up a trademark beat which bounces like a bomb on a trampoline whilst coming at the listener with a whole choir of disembodied voices and enough electronic squelch for the most demanding tech-head. Over it, Beck shows his skills as a lyricist, his calm, well-modulated, warm voice belying the anger and thoughtfulness of his lyrics. "Away," runs euphoric vocal pads up against orchestral stabs and more lyrical science.

Remix duties for the two tunes are dealt with by Flying Lotus and Offshore. Fellow Angeleno and friend FlyLo takes "Away" out into deep space, Beck's vox slathered in reverb, the tune building and building through waves of distortion. Aberdonian Offshore, on the other hand, brings some Gaelic science to proceedings. Having just released his debut single on influential Scottish label Stuff Records, Offshore strips the original back into a bass-heavy wonk-crunk masterpiece.

A true renaissance man of hip hop, Thavius Beck sees no musical boundaries other than the ones he has already left behind.
