    ON THE RUN

    Beat To Be loves celebrations, and loves retrofuturism ... so which anniversary is more attractive than the 50-year landing on the moon?
    From that unforgettable event, art was no longer the same: from literature, to music, through movies the best creative minds indulged in works that pays homage to space, galaxies and in particular the Moon.
    For us, one above all, is Pink Floyd's "The dark side of the moon" album and in particular the visionary "On The Run" track which makes switch the band from psychedelic rock to an electronic territory, anticipating the sounds we are hearing today.

    The synthesized acoustic signal technology was in its infancy, and just few companies built diode keyboards, but Pink Floyd managed to get their hands on the EMS Synthi A, a portable briefcase with a three-oscillator synthesizer that cost like a Rolls Royce.
    A real Grail, creator of fantastic masterpieces like the first ones by Kraftwerk or the experiments of Luciano Berio at Istituto di Fonologia RAI like Battiato's Foetus and Pollution.
    Even today the Synthi A is reserved for a few collectors and only characters like Emperor Machine or Aphex Twin can afford such a treasure.

    Beat To Be honored "On The Run" transforming it into a dance tune: slowing down and editing the original track then enriched with a tech beat and an effective arrangement to enjoy the unchanged avant-garde spirit of a synth music benchmark.

    THE TIME IS NOW

    For the B side of the vinyl, Beat To Be, was inspired by a heroine of our times, the favorite singer of the blog managers: Roisin Murphy. His time song 'Time Is Now' becomes a new acid-reggae balearic instrument, where the riff that mentions 'sunshine' reverberates in the decelerated atmospheres of a Roland TB 303 thrown into a swimming pool.
