Itʼs now the turn of Shapednoise for “Features Series”, and to complete this ep made of pure adrenaline thereʼs the remix of the well known Dino Sabatini (Outis Music,Sonic-Groove, Prologue). Shapednoise, one of the youngest and most promising artists of the techno scene, is based in Berlin, fully living the “Repitch recordings” project. His musical background is really wide, and you can notice it listening to his productions, a futuristic vision of the sound, with industrial elements and synthesizers characterizing his sonority. The second act of the series starts with “White light white head”: an out of ordinary track, an unusual beat, techno futuristic, that flows into a neo-industrial sound, with soundscapes that make it mental, but at the same time a post-apocalyptic dancefloor hit. Dino Sabatiniʼs version hypnotizes us, manipulates Shapednoiseʼs sounds las only he can do, with his incomparable personality, rhythmics and Drone evolving until the end of a trip to the edge of reality. Cosmic landscapes (the tiltle already tells a lot), is a track with very powerful rhythmics, for the lovers of “straight-techno”. The bonus track “neue Reisen” is something that can go through our body, a unique Bassline, a background charachterized by voices coming from the space, an ad hoc Intro/Outro, a powerful tool, a perfect final. Shapednoise, an artist to absolutely keep an eyes on this year. Also this time the artwork of Pasquale Ascione makes its part: surreal, unique, making you wondering where this faces come from, maybe from our dreams. “Features series” is a whole of musicalities where images and imaginary interpenetrate.

The (mixed) CD version of 'K' is a favourite of mine. So lush. So deep. Especially the build up to the finale of Untitled(1) aka K3.
So I thought I'd pick up this digital version to have the separate tracks. Was shocked to find out that it puts them in an entirely different order!
So, for the best experience, I recommend changing the order to: K4, K1, K3; K6, K5, K2, K7. - or best yet, find a CD version. Simon Chester
