2x12" Techno / Ambient LP From Michigan REsident - Rare 1996 Gets Ltd Repress get it Quick Before Disappears.
Ten Days Of Blue is John Beltran's second LP to date, from a distant-not-so-distant 1996, when a rush of neo-techno - on an intelligent tip - began to rush over the scene. The opening "Flex" is one of the greatest of its kind, a near 7 minute voyage of sparse drums, heavy bass and a level of euphoria that is close to match anywhere else. The truth is, however, that every tune on here is absolute fire, from the gentle IDM waves of "Collage Of Dream", the jazzed-out percussion of "Gutaris Breeze (6000km To Amsterdam)" and, of course, the knifty, pseudo d&b of "Ten Days Of Blue". There is so much more to explore, too, including the totally innovative techno of "Venim & Wonder". This gear really does sound like it was made the other day. Warmly recommended.

The NME once reckoned there was a clock inside John Beltran's head stuck fast at 5 am. It was because his music appeared to inhabit a pre-dawn state between the dancefloor and the soon to be sex or dream-soaked duvet, a special area where soft rhythm and ticking sensuality were neatly intertwined.
John was brought up on classical, jazz and latin at home - early sonic memories include John Coltrane, Tito Puente and Bach. Still based in his hometown of Lansing, Michigan, USA, Beltran leads a quiet, but athletic life. He makes music influenced by his attitudes towards life and listening habits, plus trace elements of dancefloor experiences both past and present. Read more on Last.fm
