I`m always gushing about Cedric. Very likely embarrassing him. But the guy`s another “dude”. The Beauty & The Beat parties, and the London venue Cedric is probably best associated with, Brilliant Corners, continue to go from strength to strength. Building success, not by social media bombing, but by well-deserved word-of-mouth.
This month, the collective also launched an imprint for edits, Beauty Bits. Its debut featuring a clever dance-floor rearrangement of a somewhat New Age original on one side. With a looped and mutant Funk groove – that could be, but isn`t Talking Heads – on the other.
