For the Break the Dawn / From Red To Violet 12″, the brightly shining tenth release from Beats In Space Records, Tokyo-based producer Crystal breaks out with a track meant to shred the dark veil of night to reveal a golden sunrise.
According to Crystal, he is generating “straight house music… piano, phrase sampling, energetic vocals, etc.” “Break the Dawn” revels in this simplicity, using a meditative sample to set a groove that crescendos over and over with massive vocal blasts and drum breaks.
When you’ve watched the sun ascend to unspeakable heights, side B reveals that you’ve not just experienced an otherworldly event, but you are indeed deep in space. “From Red To Violet” conjures a panoramic gradient of a Jupiter sunset by using a piano riff ruffle, cascading synth frills and lasers from another era of decadence and disco dance.
Each 12″ from Beats in Space Records features original artwork in considerate and serial form. Jiro Bevis, the London-based artist with a penchant for pop perversion, shares a subdued but fitting piece for this installation. The 12″ packaging constructed by Will Work For Good features a removable vinyl BIS logo cling.
Crystal’s Break the Dawn / From Red To Violet 12” will be released on July 30, 2013 on Beats In Space as a limited edition 12” and digitally.
Side A (45 RPM) – Break the Dawn (7:08) (“Break The Dawn” written & produced by Crystal & S. Koshi)

Lewie Day – aka Tornado Wallace – ups the meteorological ante and turns in some laser-guided, ethno-hypno, eco-lectro jams for the eighth Beats In Space Records release.
The three tracks of Tornado Wallace’s Desperate Pleasures EP sound like the work of a comfortable yet adventurous producer who isn’t afraid to take a simple yet exotic theme and stride to the other side of the jungle. According to Wallace, this is “music for darker times in warmer climes, for where there is sun there are shadows.”
What began as in-the-moment experiments with an assortment of old synths, drum machines, and dusty library records evolved into three super dapper, viscerally contaminated compositions, each one more zoned in / out than the next.
Drawing from 70s kraut, 80s post-punk, electro, and 90s house and trance, the ten plus years of producing / DJ experience that Wallace boasts allow for all of these elements to fuse together quite tastefully and strikingly at that. Ultimately, these Tornado jams dodge genre conventions for a curious and compelling outcome.
Each 12″ from Beats in Space Records features original artwork in considerate and serial form. This 12″ features the tropical creature comforts of Californian Steven Harrington and comes on tri-colored, Day-Glo splattered wax. The 12″ packaging constructed by Will Work For Good features a removable vinyl BIS logo cling.
Tornado Wallace’s Desperate Pleasures will be released on June 18, 2013 on Beats In Space as a limited edition 12” and digitally.
The one hour mix can be found here.
