Our Thursday selection: SHDW & Obscure Shape – Die Zunge Des Todes EP (From Another Mind, FAM006)
Helmed by SHDW & Obscure Shape, From Another Mind has maintained its reputation as one of techno’s most exciting platforms since its launch in 2014. When not releasing on their own high quality label the duo continues to release music via respected imprints like Dynamic Reflection and Rekids. They’re also in demand remixers having been invited by Phantasy to remix Daniel Avery ‘Projector’ and Boysnoize to remix Djedjotronic ‘Take Me Down’, not to mention Rekids for separate renditions of two legendary Radio Slave tracks, ‘Vision’ and ‘Grindhouse’. Together they share a paralleled vision for techno without setting any boundaries which is suitably reflected in all their releases and performances.
‘Die Zunge Des Todes’ kicks off with vast synth waves fluttering over the emphatic kicks and tense modulations giving off an energetic yet captivating atmosphere to begin. ‘Bisswunden’ tastefully delivers driving percussion, otherworldly oscillations and energetic melodies transcending the emotions into a hypnotic state before progressing into ‘Blick Des Bösen’ through clattering drum grooves pacing around haunting atmospheres. ‘Kein Entkommen’ finishes things off with a breaks-tinged beat, mystical tones and alleviating sound design.
