The Beat Direct is the second single taken from Black Light Smoke's first full length debut-album: Ghosts to be released in June 2023 on Scissor And Thread.
"The Beat Direct exploded naturally upon first hearing the sample that became the opening loop.", says Jordan Lieb, the producer behind Black Light Smoke. "From time to time a track writes itself: I immediately hear the vibe, chords, percussion and bass in one moment. I knew the album needed some more energy so I wanted this one to really build. The 727 percussion sounds are a bit of a through-line for the whole album, so I made sure to feature the congas and bells pretty loud in the mix."

This is a journey. The depth amazes me, as it does with Francis Harris' music in most cases. Highly recommended for anyone with an open mind and who is ready to discover new sounds and vibes. Carsten Martin Steffen
