Nope, sorry Beatrice Dillon, you can’t. What’s done is done - and what’s done is that the London-based artist has made a sprawling edge-of-the-dancefloor opus called ‘Can I Change My Mind?’. Like the output of Dillon’s former collaborator Karen Gwyer, ‘Can I Change My Mind?’ is one of those DJ tools which resists easy categorisation. Too quick for techno, too slow for juke, too feathery for dubstep, too deft for jungle. Let’s just call it Very Good Music.

Beatrice Dillion has been making waves in the last few years with collaborations with Rupert Clervaux, a show on NTS Radio, a split 12” with Karen Gwyer, records on Where To Now? and so on.
Here she follows Raime’s release as Yally on Boomkat Editions 12X12 Series with another single-sided 12” that clocks in at just over thirteen minutes and develops wonderfully across its duration. With it being longer than your average dancefloor track, this additional time allows for a highly infectious, serpentine groove to subtly manifest. Initially deceptively simple and sparse and becoming more complex, while retaining a spacious feel with economic deployment of it’s driving, core elements; textured dubwise percussion, shifting static and gloopy sub bass. As things unfold it’s incredibly hypnotic, but never over repetitive, with lots of dynamic little twists and turns. Some fragments of Amens get chopped in and elevate things up a notch but it’s all very tightly retrained. Somewhere near midway some spiralling noise appears, gently threatening to rise up high into the mix, but is cut down and silenced by gnarly bass.
An incredibly detailed, nuanced production and a masterclass in the mesmerising properties of rhythm/percussion.
