Vellico "Beck's Brew (Chocky's Groove Mix)"

After releasing the Iridis EP under his Alight moniker last year and announcing that his next record will drop via the excellent Houndstooth imprint, UK DJ/producer Ross Tones (a.k.a. Throwing Snow) dropped a record via his own Snowfall label from Vellico, a collaborative project with his brother Alistair Tones. Here, the duo has sent over London producer Chocky's smooth remix of "Beck's Brew," a cut from Vellico's brand-new The Pennines EP. Chocky's seven-and-a-half-minute groove flows through an unbroken rhythm, opening up with a steady four-to-the-floor pulse before it adds airy synth waves to the mix. Vocals and light hi-hats help keep the textured tune fresh; "Beck's Brew (Chocky's Groove Mix)" is a fine example of combining minimalist tendancies with engaging patterns and a thoroughly sleek production aesthetic.
