While Kiwi-Berliner expat Simon Beeston should be familiar from his work on labels such as Highgrade, Microzoo and Freizeitglauben – not to mention his recent remix of Signal Deluxe here on Thoughtless – he joins forces with fellow New Zealander Andi Numan for two tracks of deep yet highly effective club music. Freaks Back takes a vaguely psychedelic swirl of distorted pads and builds a dynamic arrangement atop compelling analog bass.
