Glasgow: One of techno's finest institutions, and home to some of the most legendary acts, not in just the UK, but electronic music as a whole. For this week's In Conversation, we welcome one of the city's finest talents, Gary Beck. The producer, label head, and DJ has carved a name out for himself with his unique, driving, rhythmic techno, with a long list of releases on labels like Soma, Drumcode, and his own Bek Audio to name a few. 

In our hilarious and insightful interview, we discuss how being dropped from a professional football team lead to his rise in techno, getting a bottle thrown at him during an early gig, to how maintaining a clear head helped in the process of his new upcoming album, Dál Riata.
