Body Beat Ritual – live
His name is Body Beat Ritual and his first EP has just been released on Bergerac so I think you can tell how the music has been received in the clubs since that fateful meeting.
‘Mortal Sin’ has been greeted with a resounding ‘YES PLEASE’ by new wave/electro DJs such as Alienata, Lokier, Ali Renault, techno tastemakers such as DVS1 and Rotterdam style dudes like Mick Wills and The Hacker. In short it massively delivers.
Incendiary, uncompromising, militant and massively banging are just some of the superlatives which can be applied to Body Beats music so it gives Bergerac and Rye Wax great pleasure to present his first ever UK live show. Expect edgy, dark wave, techno, new beat and electro bangers delivered in an intense shouty style.
