Brooklyn based, atmospheric electronic duo Beacon was already on our radar, but this new single from forthcoming EP 'L1' is emitting a signal whose strength we can't ignore. We are digging pretty much everything about 'Fault Lines,' from the almost granular sounding, obsessive initial two note keyboard line, to the frantic but essential drum programming. The song builds slowly through a measured accumulation of layers, while an expanding line of arpeggiators drops unexpectedly at minute 3.11, and seems to reset everything. Beacon will play Terminal 5 in NYC tonight with Tycho and Christopher Willits, while 'L1' EP is scheduled for a December release.
