Beth Lydi showcases a trophy cabinet of past studio productions that has seen her name on labels like Desert Hearts Records, Get Physical Music, and SNOE.
Most recently the Berlin-based Norwegian released her new One Girl Orchestra EP on Plump Records, which includes two great house originals alongside a percussive remix from Nathan Barato.
Beth handles this months edition of our Five Tracks, where she highlights music from Black Girl / White Girl, Miane, Kolombo, and Andreas Henneberg.
Le Motel – Work Your Back
I’m always looking for interesting tracks with breaks to kind of surprise myself and the dance floor every now and then. This one immediately caught my attention. It has a very fun, wild vibe and cool energy switch-ups.
Black Girl / White Girl – Extravaganzza
Label: He She They
I have been following these two ladies for a while and have gotten to know and work with them over the last years. Such talented producers with big hearts, I just love their style. It is always energetic, unpredictable, fierce, and driving. This is a secret weapon I have for when the night gets a bit rougher. Tune! Also I am a big fan of the label as it brings a lot of attention to human rights issues such as discrimination of the LGBTQ+ community and racism. So always up for supporting them when I have the chance.
Kolombo & Andreas Henneberg – Have Been Set Into A Trance (Henneberged Edit)
Label: Flashmob Ltd
I love the idea that two producers got together to do a collab and that the result is two different takes on one track. A very fun idea, and both tracks are great. In the Henneberged Edit, it is the playful atmosphere and the quirky synths that get me every time. A track that simply puts a smile on my face, as I love quirkiness.
Seumas Norv – Make you Happy
Label: Spinnin’ Records
This track is it! The groove is so stompy and funky, and of course the vocal in this track hit me in exactly the right place. I love how it grooves and rolls but also keeps it simple and a bit understated maybe. I am a girl for grooves, as soon as that is right, there is no need for any kind of “make-up”. It is just right.
Miane – Who Are You
Label: Black Book Records
A lady I’ve been following for a while. Love her productions. The style is very tech house, but still a bit rough, and this track makes me want to shake my booty. So that is for me always a good sign. And the vocal is beautiful. I think Miane is making really good stuff, so excited to see where she will go!
