Tyneside producer Pete Beat has apparently been knocking around for a number of years under various different guises, under which he was more concerned with breakbeat and house styles.
On his new EP, Doctor Doctor however, there is a new beginning of sorts, embracing what he calls himself “80s tinged electro pop”. This new change of tact is one that works if ‘Borderline’ is anything to go by. The standout track from his new EP, ‘Borderline’ is a majestic piece of electro pop with sweet harmonies slinking along bumping, funky beats with slumbering subdued vocals combining to create this tidy and utterly lovable track. While I’m not so taken with its companions from the EP, ‘Borderline’ deserves to be singled out for praise in its own right.
‘Borderline’ is taken from Pete Beat’s Doctor Doctor EP, which is released on 19 March 2013.
