BIS001-020 is a compilation surveying the first twenty Beats In Space Records releases. In keeping with the sensibility coveted by Sweeney during his time on air, it’s clear what makes these releases harmonious. There’s an attitude: a little bit rude, but softened with sensitivity. There is a sense of motion narrative and duration; a dedication to crescendo, a theatricality that never yawns. An appreciation for melody, but not at the expense of propulsive percussive textures.
