Beacon "Drive (No Regular Play Remix)"
- Words: Tim Gentles
Brooklyn duo Beacon (pictured above) just released the melancholy The Ways We Separate album via Ghostly, and are following it up by sharing a pulsating house remix of album track "Drive" from fellow Brooklynites No Regular Play. This new version of the R&B-tinged tune leaves the original track's yearning vocals and minor-key atmospherics fairly intact, but the addition of a restrained and steady 4/4—not to mention a slick, understated sax melody—is welcome.
