Ben Westbeech "Falling (Jam Factory Dub)"
One of the UK's emerging secret weapons, Ben Westbeech (who also drops tunes as Breach), is just over a month away from sharing his debut album made under his given name, There's More to Life Than This, through the Strictly Rhythm label. The un-Googleable Jam Factory outfit hooked us up with this dub of Westbeech's first single from that record, "Falling," in which it nabs a small section of the artist's white-boy-soul croon to loop over a deep, vintage-inspired house production. The dark bassline grooves in, out, and around the bouncing, bare-bones beat and vocal samples; it's only after four minutes of pushing those sounds through the speakers that Jam Factory starts to embellish on its track—giving us more reason to dance for another two minutes or so.
