Beat Connection – Illusion


Our favorite beatmakers from Seattle have shared a new single off their upcoming sophomore album, scheduled for release later this year. Beat Connection brings the funk on their latest effort “Illusion,” with an unexpected guitar riff and of course their signature shimmering synths. Stream the original below, along with an official mix from Amsterdam DJ/producer Saux — who ups the tempo for a splendid dance-floor groove.

Beat Connection will be on tour this summer supporting Django Django (including a stop in DC), so scope out the tour dates below.
