I had this cassette about 15 or so years ago. I remember picking it up in the bargain bin of a record store I was working at in NH because it was on Mute Records (home to Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb, etc).

Revisiting it recently though, I’m kicking myself for not appreciating this years ago like I should have. This was Chris Carter’s first “solo” outing (released in 1991), and consists of mostly instrumental minimal synth tracks, including this one, appropriately titled “Beat”.
