BECK AND RIUS present their second release on Disguised Arts, where no big names or faces are required to celebrate great electronic music. After their debut, the journey continues to more driving tracks, but also more straight messages on the Coastal side of the EP. Balearic tells another, more chilled story resulting in an even danceable as heartwarming climax.
We generously offer our second release as free download, since we believe in sharing the good stuff to all people. We believe in the community to pay us back by sharing our music and spreading the word. That means more to us than the money we would receive through buy shops or streaming portals for now.
Written, produced and mixed by BECK AND RIUS. Mastered by Salz Mastering.
The coast lines of the Mediterranean Sea. A small village, young free people dancing through the streets, living the life. Taking on the waves, discovering nature. Climbing and hiking the mighty rocks which grew through the ages. Then a small silence, meeting with the moogy bass, followed by strings announcing the dusk. The story continues through the night, where build up after build leads to the conclusion and ultimate happiness in the end. With a driving groove, but still emotional and light hearted, the tale comes to an end.
Transporting the feeling of a very unique island group is not an easy thing to do. But still the track tries to mention the chilled beach sides and progresses to the all too short nights at the Spanish club destination of choice: Ibiza. Then again enjoying the silent and peaceful Formentera, coming back to the bigger brother Mallorca where all the wide lands and varied nature let oneself dive deep. Finally landing at the smaller, more relaxed Menorca. The track changes throughout its texture and paints a holistic picture of the Balearic Islands using several breaks, which could be seen as the many boat trips taken to reach all of its different ports.

A wild arpeggiator build up introduces the main feeling of the track. Then, a bassline starts dominating the whole room like the enormous Milky Way dominates the night. Observatory is actually like watching the night sky. Observing all the different layers of the firmament, realizing the sheer size of the universe when looking at the stars and galaxies which shine from the past. Evolving pads conclude the emotions and result in the climax of the track – with high playing synths announcing the first morning lights slowly overshining the brightest stars of the night.
Imagine wide landscapes, a journey from green lands to the tundra, travelling over high mountains into the jungle. Riding the continent’s borders, meeting people and visiting places – but this is more, this is a journey not only to feed your brain with visuals, but also to discover your deepest emotions. From raving in the cities of the world to the far places no one could imagine to visit when dancing. Journey is a about all that and mirrors the feelings emerging: from deep to acid lines being played, always accompanied by the mysterious main melody.
A straight statement of the night. Reflecting the happenings and experiences collected at one of the biggest and most important music festivals of the world.
Amsterdam – from Warehouses to small clubs, it is all in here, moving with the grooves – not forgetting the lovely melodic lead which guides you through the night.

We introduce this label with no face. Just your imagination, and places we show you.
We are tired of all the hype for faces and big pictures in our scene. We think almost everything is marketed through the front person nowadays. But actually, there should only be one thing that matters: The art. Composed of the music and the visuals. That’s why we do not need a hyped name, a hyped persona or one big human face which gets all the attention. The music should be the main thing we release, so an unbiased feeling can develop from the sound alone.
