Becks Craft Musical Beer Bottle…



It seems the worlds of alcohol and music are forever destined to be entwined. First Carlsberg launch their ‘Where’s the party series?’, then Smirnoff hooked up with DJ Fresh for their amazing Mind Tunes project and now Becks in support of their new record label venture have invented a new way of listening to music that takes inspiration from Thomas Edison’s first forays into recording music.

Yes The 19th century collides with 21st century in this concept: Beck’s has developed a beer bottle that actually plays music. Inspired by Edison’s cylindrical phonograph it utilizes a custom built music player; a turntable like needle  playing the grooves of an specially etched beer bottle to produce music. We love music, we love beer so for us the real question is Becks what took you so long?

With only two bottles yet crafted to play music and one player we don’t think that digital formats have anything to be too threatened by just yet but it is undeniably very cool. Check it out below.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
