Beshken doesn’t mess around. Positivity flows through his incomparable soundscapes like water comes out of a tap and while many of his indie/future bass peers strike a common path, the Santa Monica based producer goes out of his way to venture into the woods without a map. This mentality strikes a chord as each remix and original he’s released to date has had a magnetic quality based on the element of surprise; a trait often seen from his choices to suddenly drop into detours that sample from an eclectic array of sub genres.
His newest remix, a hang-gliding, carefree take on Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t That Peculiar,” is a triumph that punctures and blips as much as the floating synths raise the track much like yeast rises in freshly baked bread. The remix is soft and pillowy allowing listeners to allow themselves to feel warm and cozy as the ambient pads envelop the interstitial space between dreams and reality. It’s as chill as summer vibes go, perfecting the fine balance between indie electronica and fratboy house, and it pairs well with a mojito. Surprising, lusty, and spirited, Beshken’s version of “Ain’t That Peculiar” goes above and beyond straight for the clouds.
