Point B

Suicide Beauty Spot

Combat Recordings

Released: 23rd November 2009 | 14 track dubstep album
Autumn 2009 sees Brixton's foremost melodic electronic artist Point B releasing a full length artist album on Combat. Fans of his electronic peers such as Kelpe, Boards of Canada, Burial, Autechre and Tipper will find this potent brew infused with reflection and bittersweet calm. Maintaining his characteristic playful sense of melody and effortlessly flitting between genres, Suicide Beauty Spot is a brooding, contemplative and dark work of beauty and is Point B's first full-length album on Combat Recordings. Themed around a calm, beautiful, natural contemplative place where people go to deliberately end their lives, the vibe is profoundly deep, and wanders across dubstep, 2 step garage, bleepy electronics and hip hop tempos. The sound of circuitry soaked in warm human emotion, at times it veers almost into Boards of Canada / Burial territory, but always stays within the crisp, bleepy realms of his own sound. Whilst embracing the urban rhythms (dubstep, hip-hop, 2 step) so familiar on his 12 vinyl releases, this long player embraces some lovely live instrumentation in which the likes of his santoor, Irish harp, dulcimer and marimba animate the bass-heavy soundscapes. Press reviews / Rsdio / Club Play: Like Burial with cleaner lines and less complicated emotions, the gorgeous nighttime city visions of this sleek, contemplative record are the perfect example of how dubstep has given 'home listening' electronica a sense of purpose again. - Joe Muggs, The Arts Desk as dubstep comes of age, so the quality moves out of the realm of DiY bedroom productions and into that of the rich, layered compositions found in Suicide Beauty Spot. Geuninely exciting exploration of the sonic possibilities opening out there - 4/5 Ben Arnold, DJ Mag Really like point B - extra-dimensional ghostliness and stark foraging with pulsing undertows.
