Beat Pharmacy Earthly Delights
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Deep Space Media
Francois K could not have picked a better candidate to launch his Deep Space Media label with. An offshoot of his tremendously popular Monday night weekly, Deep Space NYC at Cielo, Earthly Delights is everything this party is about: midtempo rhythms with warm chest hits and dubbed grooves. Beat Pharmacy (Brendon Moeller) explores an emotional soundscape rooted in Afro and Jamaican sounds, the ulterior groove on "Cape Town" (his hometown) draws you in with a repetitive synth before filling out into a six-minute horn-led sprawl. Paul St. Hilaire‘s two vocal contributions ("Race Track Jockey" and "Don‘t Bodda Me") give a lyrical lift to this exploration of instrumental brilliance.
