Pick of the week:
Obscure Shape & SHDW with Himmel Und Erde EP on Rekids, REKIDS104.
German duo Obscure Shape & SHDW drop three robust Techno tracks in their first full release on Rekids this May.
One of the most exciting acts in Techno today, Obscure Shape & SHDW are the founders of From Another Mind – the label and party series making waves in South-Germany. Aside from Rekids, where they remixed Radio Slave’s ‘Vision’ last year, the pair’s abilities in the studio have seen them invited by Slam for two separate remixes of Monoloc and Envoy on Soma, with more projects to be announced.
‘Himmel Und Erde’ is a cavernous cut boasting colossal kicks and skipping percussion before a tantalising melody comes into play. ‘Am Ende Der Welt’ is more deep and atmospheric in comparison, blending dusky percussion with echoing synths until ‘Gefallene Engel’ demonstrates syncopated drums and an otherworldly hook that conjure up a mesmerising aesthetic to conclude the release.
