About this item

Be With have raided the KPM archives to re-issue another favourite from the KPM 1000 series. 

They Say: Underscore moods and links - contemporary beat music idiom.

We say: Includes some of the most sublime, sub-ten second tracks you’re ever likely to hear, alongside more traditionally-lengthed library funk heat. The dream team of Alan Hawkshaw and Keith Mansfield are here at the helm of one of the most legendary of the legendary KPM albums, originally released in 1969.

Beat Incidental is psychedelic pop-soul that hits hard thanks to fuzz guitars, growling flutes, deep hammond grooves and drum breaks galore: it’s basically “drama jazz”.

As with all of their KPM re-issues, the audio for "Beat Incidental" comes from the original analogue tapes and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. They’ve taken the same care with the sleeves, handing the reproduction duties over to Richard Robinson, the current custodian of KPM’s brand identity.
