I love Beta Evers, she is one of the most fascinating artists in electronic music – someone whose uncanny ability to balance on the cutting edge of music seems right out of central casting, or at least Andy Warhol’s Factory. I first discovered her long after she had already begun, with a bizarre track called “Move In My Body Rhythm” that sounds like an acid house record made by someone that had never heard acid house before and was compelled to create it based solely upon written descriptions.
On this split 12″ (called Split 12″ as far as I can tell), Beta Evers shares the bill with Spatial Relation. There’s more proto-retro-electro-acid on “Hiding,” where it provides a tripwire for her tight-as-a-cord vocal and thin percussion plotted with coldblooded robotic glee. “Soundtrack For A Tomorrow” swan dives into the darkness, and with “Innerhalb Der Zeit,” fails to emerge unscathed on the other side.
