Music Montag: Beam Up

by James Glazebrook

Fuck, it’s been hot here. Here’s some dub to make Berlin feel even more like the Caribbean: Beam Up featuring Terrence Bowry. Over the top of a vintage roots reggae riddim, Bowry recounts the experience of living in Shanghai when the 2011 tsunami hit, enhanced by the exotic sounds of Japanese fireworks, insects and kodo drumming. Produced in the Berlin-36 studio, this is heavy stuff, but the perfect soundtrack to a blazing summer’s day.
