Musical Tribute: Beat Dis


Beat Dis is a performance by Bomb The Bass; a band formed in London around 1990 by Tim Simenon, a producer and musician. The band stood at the beginning of the electronic and dance music era.

Although I wasn’t too deep into dance music when I was a kid this was a genre I could still enjoy, amongst which this number which is also their debut single.

Production costs of this number are said to be 500 pounds, and it was one of the very first which would bring sampling to the masses.

The bass line and percussion was set up by Tim Simenon. As you can hear the rest of this track is a compilation of samples, soundscapes and musical effects. Definitely a classic of its own time.
