March 6, 1993 - Liveset from Joey Beltram, recorded at the Orbit (Morley, Leeds)

 

Liveset from the American DJ and producer Joey Beltram (born November 6, 1971 in New York City), recorded at the Orbit in Morley, Leeds on March 6, 1993

Joey Beltram is best known for the pioneering recordings "Energy Flash" and "Mentasm". Mentasm, co-produced with Mundo Muzique and released under the artist name Second Phase in 1991, became iconic within rave culture, as it was the track that gave birth to the "mentasm riff" (also known as the "Hoover sound"): a churning, dirgelike synth pattern that wormed into techno's communal genome and has since been mutated and reused in literally thousands of records. Beltram and the "mentasm riff" are strongly associated with drum and bass, the Belgian techno scene, and the R&S record label, as well as hardcore/hard house in their various permutations since 1994. Beltram was referenced as a pioneer in the late 1990s house music scene by Daft Punk, in their song "Teachers" off their 1997 debut album, Homework and author, Simon Reynolds, credited Beltram with having "revolutionized techno twice before the age of 21," when describing both "Energy Flash" and "Mentasm" in his book Generation Ecstasy.
