M-Mesa The Reframe Show feat Beta Hector (Tru Thoughts)

right, so what we have here is a superb, two hour mix of lazy, hazy, beats from the world of hip hop, psychedelia and elsewhere, spun together with ease and style by the shows host, Mick Mesa (fist half) and Beta Hector (second half). Beta Hector (aka Simon Hill) is currently signed to Brighton’s Tru Thoughts label, and recently released his quite excellent album, Sunbeam Insulin

  1. THE REFRAME

    M-Mesa The Reframe October 2011 with Guest Beta Hector (Tru Thoughts)

    September saw the Reframe take a break as impending fatherhood finally arrived and gladly grabbed all the spare time available…and then some. Not to be dismayed the podcast returned to the airwaves on the 14th October with a renewed vigour. This month Mick welcomed along the rather splendid Beta Hector whose album Sunbeam Insulin dropped in early September on the rather fabulous Tru Thoughts label out of Sunny Brighton.

    The Podcast is a lazy sojourn through hazy downbeats, dusty breaks, 60’s psychedelia, smoky soul and head nodding hip hop. In the first 90 minutes Mick takes the podcast through artists including Jaylib, The Bins, Beat Konducta, Madvillain, Iron Butterfly, Velvet Underground, Jon Kennedy, Bonobo, RJD2, Shawn Lee, Midnight EEZ, Paul White, Letta Mbulu, King Britt, Louis Mackey amongst others.
    Beta Hector Biog
    Beta Hector also known as Simon Hill who in 2008 formed the deep funk band Baby Charles receiving rave reviews from the likes of MOJO and Pitchfork for their debut album in 2008, touring Europe and gracing Glastonbury festival. With major radio play from Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1), several sessions for the BBC including Mark Lamarr (Radio 2) and the 6 Music Funk & Soul Show, plus heavy international support.

    Si was also making beats and loops since the late nineties, but got a real taste of producing when he co-mixed the Baby Charles album. It wasn’t long before Beta Hector was born out of experimenting with heavy drum loops, bass lines, analogue synths, guitars, vintage tape machines and a range of talented vocalists.
