If you are reading this on Discogs and you see this 12" for sale , buy it now....!!
Beltram at his absolute best.
" The Calling " is a Deep and dark affair with haunting synth sounds and Joey's trademark percussion of perfect hi - hats and snares which creates a breakbeat with a very 808 electro pattern. The track also has this great vocal sample "ohh" that has a kind of reverbed echo that makes the sounds so much more sinister!!!
" Eyes of the mind " once again has the Beltram trademark percussion but this time it's straight up no nosense 4/4 techno/trance style track with a acid line that sounds like it was recorded on a diffrent planet!
1990 and Joey Beltram WAS the main man and along with Frankie Bones , Jel and my mate LK we are Four of the lucky 500 people who own it !!!

These tracks were produced in the style of original techno music, the way things were meant to be, but one thing was different. They were both totally DARK and SUBLIME. Some of Beltrams 1991 1992 releases, brilliant though they were, I feel don't even come close to the rarity and seminal darkness of these tracks. Its unfortunate that the scene quickly mutated into jungle< however i feel this is the perfect example of how the darker side of oldskool rave music was back then before the happy_dark split and the cynical commercialisation of rave music>

Limited to only 500 pressings and without proper distribution or third party licensing, this is possibly one of Joey's rarest and unknown record. Following close to his first and only other release on Alibi Records "Let It Ride" - Direct, "The Calling" used gritty & dark freestyle grooves combined with his trademark sweeps & effects, this is one of the few lost treasures of the Belram catalog. One that should be remembered but sadly is not.
