Warm retro-synths, driving disco-beats and a straight up ‘80s vibe. Without a doubt, Berlin-based producer Beckett delivers the perfect late summer anthem with “Butterflies”. He’s supported by up-and-coming Canadian artist Claire Ridgley, who has already caught international attention by featuring on Robotaki’s “Monkey Bars” (Majestic Casual Records), and Pat Lok’s “Crystal Ball” (Kitsuné). The dreamy vocals of the Montreal-based singer are a perfect fit for Beckett’s tailored glam-pop-hymn, with vintage-soul and shimmering nostalgic vibes.
With “Butterflies”, Beckett proves that he is capable, as few beside him are, of disrupting the limits of typical genres. Playfully he crosses contemporary sound with retro elements, blending digital and analog tones to a high standard of sound that has yet to be challenged. Beyond this, Beckett succeeds in stepping into the background to take on the initial role of the producer. Presenting his featured guests at the forefront, Beckett sits behind the controls to allow for a natural creative flow, resulting in a purely customised sound.
