Bear Beat – “Mahoya Shine”


An intoxicating, hypnotic electronic single from UK-based artist Bear Beat, “Mahoya Shine” evolves brilliantly within an arsenal of deep percussive ruminations, fluttering synth effervescence, and an infectious vocal range. The soaring vocal infusion approaching the two-minute turn coincides with a thumping rhythmic ferocity, kickstarting a second half with dance-friendly inclinations. More rhythmic bustle and exotic chiming mystique intertwine in the final minute, as the suave vocal presence re-emerges for a final satiation.

Representing the second single so far this year from Bear Beat, “Mahoya Shine” is exemplary of the artist’s knack for momentum-filled structural developments, also apparent on last year’s featured single “Bring You Down.” These stream of recent successes have us wholly anticipating whatever’s next from Bear Beat, an electronic project with serious melodic prowess.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Electronic.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
