Shackleton - Man On A String Part 1 and 2

Shackleton enters the void left by Skull Disco with the launch of a brand new and somewhat unexpected new imprint: Woe To The Septic Heart! It's become a noticable trend that when Shackleton produces for other labels he tends to adjust ever so slightly towards their aesthetic, but Septic is clearly the place to go for the most esoteric, personal strains of his sound. 'Man On A String Parts 1 & 2' maps out a florid jungle scene populated with telepathic drum circles and spiraling sequences of melodica-like tones organised in ritual formations over a sprawling 10 minute duration. By contrast 'Bastard Spirit' is like the evil character lurking in the undergrowth, beating a super slow and martial bass tattoo with groovesome swagger and all of the melody emitted from tilted percussive timbres and the presence of menacing subbass harmonics, all designed to put dancers in a drowsy, hypnagogic state in order to be infiltrated by the titular entities. With the awesome full colour artwork from Skull Disco sleeve designer, Zeke Clough, this looks like being the start of something very special indeed. Deadly. in boomkat [Para Ouvir/Samples]
