One of the UK's emerging secret weapons, Ben Westbeech (who also drops tunes as Breach), is just over a month away from sharing his debut album made under his given name, There's More to Life Than This, through the Strictly Rhythm label.
The un-Googleable Jam Factory outfit hooked us up with this dub of Westbeech's first single from that record, "Falling," in which it nabs a small section of the artist's white-boy-soul croon to loop over a deep, vintage-inspired house production. The dark bassline grooves in, out, and around the bouncing, bare-bones beat and vocal samples; it's only after four minutes of pushing those sounds through the speakers that Jam Factory starts to embellish on its track—giving us more reason to dance for another two minutes or so.

Today’s FACT mix comes from UK house institution Ben Westbeech.
Bristol-bred but now based in East London, Westbeech is responsible for one of 2010's most distinctive dancefloor tunes (featuring possibly the most menacing use of flutes ever), ‘Fatherless’, produced under his hard-bellied Breach alias, but he’s also a man with some serious pedigree behind him. He released his debut album, Welcome to the Best Years of Your Life, on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label, in 2007, and subsequently appeared live with Bjork and Paul McCartney.
His mix for FACT features Lee Jones, KiNK, Subculture, The Gap Band and more and arrives well-timed: Westbeech recently announced news of his collaboration-heavy second album, There’s More to Life than This, which is set for release in April 2011 through Strictly Rhythm and features work with Soul Clap, Henrick Schwarz, MJ Cole, Cosmin TRG, Motor City Drum Ensemble and more.
