Landing in London recently with a brand new project under the Beca pseudonym reveals a fresh, darker, moodier sound that fits Beca like a glove. Musically gifted from a young age, Beca is a graduate of the Juilliard composition school and has traveled all over the American continent sharing her talent, writing and composing for a vast array of different artists whilst developing her own path and voice.
Last year, Beca released two stunning EP's on UK label This Is Music Ltd. (Charli XCX, Little Boots). Her debut “Let’s Run Wild” covers a whole range of sounds and emotions, and reaches out from the depths of the subconscious to grab you by the scruff of the neck and demand repeated listening. Ashley Beedle’s remix of “Let’s Run Wild” takes the original’s smooth sound, and cranks things up a gear, creating a sonically powerful track that promises peak-time dancefloor action and a rattling of soundsystems worldwide. On the B-side, Klic (better known under his alternative alias ‘Medlar’) creates a big and bassy house/garage hybrid using cut up vocals. “Fall Into Light” shifts the mood back to the dark atmospherics that hold this project together, and describes a powerful tale of desire and forbidden romance, while an electric ride of stripped-back beats takes you on an effortless journey through the music.
Her second release "Born To Fly" showcases Beca’s soulful, minimal RnB side EP and features two new tracks and intricate re-workings from newcomer Madeaux and "Born To Fly" producer Midnight Magic’s Morgan Wiley. The “Born To Fly” (Madeaux remix) morphs the title track into an infectious rhythm-heavy banger with swirling synth lines and reverberating vocals. Beca’s self-produced cover of Cristina’s “Rage & Fascination” with additional production from drummer and collaborator Xack Xweig sets a sensual tone. The “Rage & Fascination” (Snorlax remix) is a twisted Witch House instrumental take on the track.
Both EP's are available for purchase on iTunes and Beca’s website.
