Comment: Beko DSL is a French contemporary music imprint who started to issue singles and compilations at the beginning of the 10s when such styles as chillwave, glo-fi, hypnagogic pop, dreamwave started to appear. Undoubtedly it was one of the best sources to get proper overview about new music. Unfortunately they decided to finish off their doings at the end of 2011, though all the releases are still up there. Beko_91 involves three compositions (one track is provided by Cankun, and two by Holy Strays both artists coming from France). Cankun who is now highly acclaimed artist within indie music circles provides a track called Coconuts which used to circle around due to fairly sultry synth loops and dusty ambience as if providing an interface for ambient and lo-fi pop. Indeed, I like that the sounds are subdued as if buried in. Holy Strays`s tracks are also immersed in mildly glistening echoes and DIY aesthetic driven synthesiser`s soup. In a word, listen to it and let`s remember those good old times replete with hope and desire.
