Jarretr This album is so 80s, that if you listen to it, you may inadvertently open up a time warp into an alternate parallel dimension where Phil Collins is Supreme Leader of Earth and "Miami Vice" is mandatory nightly viewing. Like any of that would be a bad thing. This is superb synthwave made with real dedication to recreating the aesthetic sounds of the 1980s while looking forward to new sounds as well. It's the best kind of nostalgic music. Favorite track: Spend The Summer | Feat. Rachael Jones.

shadowsmirrorsfan Fantastic tunes from the lighter side of Synthwave. If this doesn't make you dream of the sun soaked 80s then I don't know what will! Play and Time Slides are my top 2 tracks, but the whole album is great, make sure to check this out!! Favorite track: PLAY | Feat. Simon Reynolds & Luca Ricardo.

Halyein Another brilliant LP from one of the most talented and under-appreciated Synthwave artists.

I particularly love TIME SLIDES, which takes me straight back to the 80s as Beckett’s own voice, lyrics and musicianship reign supreme. Other tracks loved: AIRGAMES ’88 - perfect for retro sporting inspiration. PLAY - a simply fantastic, upbeat, summer-soaked piece. Also SOUTH BEACH, PARTLY A MIRACLE, WE CAN GET DOWN, and the instrumentals. Favorite track: Time Slides.

about

I remember the heat, the sea, the breeze and chasing the girl for that perfect summer kiss. A time before smart phones and messages, a time you had to talk and connect and make bonds, watch the sunset together, fall in love, go for the win and sometimes lose it all.
Summer's gone...

"The power of 'Five' is the complexity of skill Beckett shows in his 80s compositions. From start to finish, 'Five' plays like a nostalgic summer soundtrack. David Foster would be proud of the new Beckett"
::: Noah Kaufmann - Radio Show Host and DJ at KFAI 90.3 FM Minneapolis/106.7 FM Saint Paul kfai.org

"Beckett proves, once again that 80s sounds and moods flow innately from his soul into his synths. Five shines out from the darkness like a neon beacon, guiding you to beautifully written and honest music that pops with class, swaggers with passion and rocks to the max.'
::: RIck Shithouse, Synthetix.FM

"A wonderful 80s Summer and good feeling Soundtrack. Nostalgic, fantastic that's the BECKETT vibe. Five is my new crush now"
::: Jean Pierre VanDamme - DRIVE Radio

Track Name: We Can Get Down | Feat. Rachael Jones & Luca Ricardo
We Can Get Down.


I’d love to get your name? Have a drink.. You think the same?
Baby.
I know this bars a dive, why don’t we go for a drive?
Baby?

VOCO: Come on pretty baby move your body.
Let me take you out now to a party.

I know this place to stay, a little Isle to get away.
Baby.
I’d love to treat you right, Champagne and candle light.
Baby?

VOCO: Must be thinking I’m not doing badly.
Let me be your candy sugar daddy.

Chorus.
When the night time falls…. we can get down.
VOCO: Everybody shake it down now .
I wanna see you dancing shaking it down.
When the night time falls…. we can get down.
VOCO: Pretty baby move your body.
Let me take you to a little party.
When the night time falls…. we can get down.
VOCO: Everybody shake it down now.
Wanna see you dancing shaking it down.
When the night time falls…. we can get down. / VOCO: We Can Get On DOWN

SOLO – Mr. Luca Ricardo!

Mr. B:
Shaking it down till the break o’ dawn,
Aint nobody stopping coz they having so much fun,
I ain’t checking girls, but your looking on the sly,
Everybody needs a nod before they hanging with the fly…
…Casanova, I got the money, I’m the boss,
Got the Tessarossa waiting lets go driving in the north side “Baby"
Well, I hear you say, every minute I’m with you is like a hazy 80’s day,
You ain’t wrong girl, I got the neon step, I got the 80s signature and its running through the track,
“Baby” Just one last lyric, while we pass to the bridge I gotta make sure that you hear it,
Mr. B to the E. C. K. E. double T rocking baby “Let me be your candy sugar daddy.”
That’s all I need, now give a shout Mr. Luca for the funk in the beat.

Chorus.
Track Name: Spend The Summer | Feat. Rachael Jones
Stay for the Moment,
Stay for the night?
I’ll take every indecision you have, and make it right.
Stay for the weekend,
Honey, stay for life!?
We can’t let this feeling pass, you and I can survive.

Pre-Chorus
You know you want too, spend your summer,
And, I know it should be … with me..

Chorus
Spend your summer,
Baby with me,
Spend your summer,
Running with me.
And I will help make all those mem- or- ies last

Spend your summer,
Dancing with me.
Spend your summer,
Holding on to me.
Live it now,
Spend your summer

Verse2
Running with my wilder side,
You making me feel alive.
I can feel it pulsing fast... my heart.
Chasing all my fears away,
You making we wanna forget,
I could close my eyes and stay… with you.

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Bridge
Running with my wilder side,
Ya Making me feel alive.
Chasing all my fears away,
I could close my eyes and stay… with you.

Key step up.
Double Chorus
Track Name: Partly A Miracle | Feat. DIMH
I’ve always found love is partly a miracle.
I never really tried to uncover the why.
I need a little more than hope, something tangible.
This time around it's real and I'm willing to Try?

Chorus
I know just what you’re wanting to say,
Take my hand, you lead the way.
Hold me I know you want me to stay.
I’m here for you with a life we can make.

Before I met you I was running a red line.
Just coasting on by never feeling the beat
It seemed a little more alone, and life passed by
Somehow, somewhere I’d try to feel complete

Chorus
You know what I'm wanting to say,
Take my hand, you lead the way.
Hold me I know that you want to stay.
Be here for me with a life we can make.

Solo

Double Chorus
I know just what you’re wanting to say,
Take my hand, you lead the way.
Hold me I know you want me to stay.
Together now, don’t let it fade
I found the love that is part of the miracle ,
Trust in me, I’m here for you.
Track Name: Take It To The Danger Zone | Feat. Oceanside85
I told her what she needed to know,
It don’t mean its a thing.
She got all she wanted to hear,
But honey I Said nothing,

And I Just want to move to the next instalment,
Baby what you got planned?
I said, I just gotta feel like I did in Paris. (ooh,) let me guide your hand…

I just gotta know your right for me,
A weekend all alone and we shall see!

Chorus
Take it… My love ride into the danger… zone
Take it My love its yours… its yours forever more. ooooo

She came around here looking for you?!
You said you cut her loose?
I don’t need no hang ups… you gotta choose.
Now, I keep thinking babe you got a good thing going.
So I’m gonna let her slide.
Now you, gotta forget bout that lost lover… take me to the oceanside.

Pre Chorus
Driving top down, breeze is in my hair,
The world could fall away, I won’t care.
Highway to our own secluded beach,
A weekend all alone and we shall see.

Chorus
Take it… My love ride into the danger… zone
Take it My love its yours… its yours forever more.

SOLO

Pre Chorus
Driving top down, breeze is in my hair,
The world could fall away, I won’t care.

Chorus
Take it… My love ride into the danger… zone
Take it My love its yours… its yours forever more.
Take it… My love ride into the danger… zone
Take it My love its yours… its yours forever more.

TAKE IT.
Track Name: Time Slides
I…
know how we left this.
Here I am Again.
Standing and waiting
I know your voice.
Is it you there?
on the other side?
Is it just a fragment,
of a life I had?
Once with you?


Chorus.
There’s no stopping the clock, see Time Slides,
I keep thinking is now, but it’s past lives.
I know what it takes to make a dream.

We had something once, and it felt right.
I took a chance and lost it in one night. In one night!
I keep coming back to the same old story line… but without you. Without you

There's no stopping the clock, see, time slides.
I keep hoping it’ll stop, and I’ve tried,
to understand the passing hand.
I'm working my way back to you.
And I’ll try everything to make it happen.


And all the while I let you go,
Didn’t want to make you sad,
Or even make a scene.
My time has changed
I know the purpose, was to say goodbye.
From the other side.


There’s no stopping the clock, see Time Slides,
I keep thinking is now, but it’s past lives.
I know what it takes to make a dream.

We had something once, and it felt right.
I took a chance and lost it in one night. In one night!
I keep coming back to the same old story line… but without you. Without you

There's no stopping the clock, see, time slides.
I keep hoping it’ll stop, and I’ve tried,
to understand the passing hand.
I'm working my way back to you.
And I’ll try everything to make it happen.
