- Blissful melodic techno from a Michigan master.
- When we think of melodic Detroit techno, UR and Carl Craig come to mind, but when it comes to floor-filling tracks that balance smart drum programming with pure melodic bliss, Lansing native John Beltran is rarely matched. He's in fine form on his new EP for Seventh Sign Recordings. Snares roll over dreamy, intricate melodic structures on "Now The Clouds Are Gone," but "Thank Goodness I Found You"—written around the time Beltran met his fiancé—feels like an emotional high-water mark for the ambient techno legend.
