"Cosmic funk, glitch, dubstep, hip-hop, soul and scorched knobs extract sonic bass juice on Shadow Attack’s name your price album download called Aqua Dipped.
Diving into Merck-styled dynamics — think Deceptikon, Kristuit Salu vs Morris Nightingale — this disjointed bed of slippery beats and wobbly low-end may initially appear aligned with the current trend of experimental-dubstep but has more in common with electrified hip-hop and fresh rhythms to keep 3am dance floors adrift. Fresh samples adjacent to rhythm-snaps flex and contort next to melody-drenched focal points. While the Merck references may seem dated considering they closed shop years ago, one can’t help but be displaced when listening to these eight skeletal structures of background and foreground spaces. Should Shadow Attack continue to manipulate extraterrestrial soundwaves, it’ll be no surprise to see this musician expanding his audio-territory in 2012."
"Hailing from Ann Arbor, home to both Samiyam and Shigeto, Shadow Attack - another cat cut from the long line of brilliant sound designers from the Detroit area. Between his involvement in the digi distro Deepblip Records, and producing, he stays busy working all other facets of the music from promo to shows to design - a true one man gang. How I came across Shadow Attack's release still escapes me (just aimless surfing through my soundcloud in box), but there's still nothing better than discovery. He dropped just days ago a 90 something banger for the masses to enjoy, and I think you will."
