BEC Deliver Remix EP For The Course’s Iconic ‘Ready Or Not’
Brighton-born BEC stands as one of the most exciting UK components on the current techno circuit, championing a strong female perspective with unbounded creativity and scope. Entering the next phase of her meteoric rise, BEC takes on The Course’s debut 1997 single ‘Ready Or Not’, which sampled the truly iconic 1996 original by the Fugees. Delivering two stylish interpretations in the form of a ‘High Vibration’ and ‘Rave’ remix, BEC provides a fresh listening experience for the modern audience — out now via the original Dutch label Altra Moda Music.
Dubbed a ‘Rave Remix’, the first is a raw and rave-edged Techno cut with an outstanding piano stab present during and after the first drop. The high-impact hats and heavy kicks deliver unrelenting propulsion, allowing a free melodic space for the iconic bass riff to ring out. The second edit has many influences from the UK Jungle and Breakbeat spectrums. BEC uses the vocal sample for almost the entire duration of the remix with the help of filters to blend it to the fullest, in addition to her acid-breeding synthwork; a nod to her rooted techno sound palette. The tracks differ radically but are tied together with a sense of embedded excitement within their polyrhythmic drum patterns and dynamic arrangement.
