Beat Culture – “Shibuya” (feat. KID A) (Stereogum Premiere)
Beat Culture is really Sunik Kim, a Yale student who has been making sparkling laptop compositions for sometime now. “Shibuya” begins with a fragile formlessness that gradually builds in every way. Static, distortion, melodies, and a pounding 4/4 beat all grow stronger over the course of the track until Kim pulls the plug and reverts to an ambient coda. Listen below.
The single is out now on B3CSI Records. Pre-order here.
