Alec Berlin – “Beat Confabulator (All Night on the Floor)”


An exciting instrumental rocker from Brooklyn-based artist Alec Berlin, “Beat Confabulator (All Night on the Floor)” proves riveting in its feeling of constant escalation. The opening wastes no time; twangy guitars drive into pulses of distortion, as a charismatic guitar lead emerges alongside buzzy synth reflections. The fervent guitar licks and enjoining synths compel into the track’s mid-point.

The second presents a roaring excitement, with dazzling guitar work rising into a howling passion as the four-minute turn approaches. A smoother guitar tone assembles thereafter, as gentle synth pulsations bolster the lush and satiating conclusion. Including nods to influences like “New Orleans, Prince, and Pat Metheny,” the track excels in its catching production and guitar-synth correspondences.

“Beat Confabulator (All Night on the Floor)” is the opener and title track on Berlin’s stellar new album:

Berlin was previously featured in January, with the track “LaNoise.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2023’ Spotify playlist.
