The Benbecula Records Video Collection (video)

Benbecula is one of the most exciting labels in Scotland. Since 1999, they have delivered to the area and, thanks to the internet, the world some of the finest downtempo, ambient, experimental, glitch, folk, and all electronic variations of each. Not that they only deal with Scottish music, mind you. The electronic free-jazz of Brian Ellis comes from California, while Phrizzm's IDM flows from Ontario. These six videos will give you a sense of their style. Two of them are from my personal favorite Christ. (pronounced like Christopher), who was an early member of Boards Of Canada.

Christ. - "Happyfour Twenty" from Blue Shift Emissions

Brian Ellis - "Para Ti" from The Silver Creature

Genaro - "Suspicions" from Genaro

Phrizzm - "Minutae" from Phrizzm EP

Christ. - "Always to Play" from Metamorphic Reproduction Miracle

Brian Ellis - "Say" from The Silver Creature
