Hey, what do you know? Life found a way! Rhythm-centric mad scientist Beatrice Dillon has just announced her debut solo album for PAN. And, much like those engineered animals on Jurassic Park, it’s a friggin’ MONSTER.

Recorded over 2017-2019 in London, Berlin, and New York, Workarounds is part UK club skronk, part Afro-Caribbean experimentalism, and ALL GROOVE — mixing “meticulous FM synthesis and harmonics with crisply edited acoustic samples,” all at a “fixed 150bpm tempo.”

It also features the likes of Kuljit Bhamra, Laurel Halo, Batu, Untold, Kadialy Kouyate, Jonny Lam, Verity Susman, Kenichi Iwasa, Lucy Railton, Petter Eldh, James Rand, and Morgan Buckley — AND was mixed by James Rand and mastered by Rashad Becker. Talk about an ambitious cut-and-paste Frankenstein!
