A man of chameleonic talents in countless electronic dance scenes, Dylan Beale has been operating under a handful of aliases and groups since the start of the 90s. With a crate’s worth of records still in heavy rotation, he is perhaps most well known for the moody and twisted jungle classic of 1997 ‘Give Me A Dubplate’ as Rude & Deadly with Tobi Bridie, but the release to cement his career with cult club stardom was one of his very first.

Originally released on white label and promo 12”s in 1991, How To Stay Alive from Beale’s Eze-Ozo project is a hidden gem of bleep techno found in treasure troves of oldskool mixes and underground rave playlists. Now unearthed by London based reissue label Mint Condition, this rare record is ready for new dancefloor memories to be made.

A master of pacing, Eze-Ozo makes sure every sound gets its spotlight over the tracks runtime, while keeping their infectious danceability at an all-time high. ‘How To Stay Alive’ is a slowburner, measured with squelching synths and futuristic pads that complement the expertly flipped Blade Runner sample. On the flipside, ‘Kick The Break In’ is layered to perfection, pairing thunderous beats with haunting strings that add an emotional and cinematic angle to this breakbeat belter.

With a remaster by Curve Pusher, How To Stay Alive’s acid tinged synth stabs and crashing breaks gain a new solidity. Let your speakers rise to the challenge of playing a deadly sub bass designed to pound in your heart and propel your body into a dancing fever.
