For our next release we turn to an emerging producer in the form of young Belgian Innershades. With but one previous release on Ukraine’s Wicked Bass label, little is known of the man other than the fact that he produces heavyweight techno with a purposeful and dubbed out menace.
The first cut here, 'Nina At The Boiler Room' is a mid tempo stomper with grainy textures and musky ambiance run through with a wild acid line and classic pinging cowbells. It's potent and feverish and forever builds to a peak, at which point a searching horn sound surveys the desolate landscapes. 'No Stoppin' is more like dub house, shrouded as it is in plenty of echo, delay and rueful and romantic pads.
Last cut 'The Future' is the most up beat and peak time of the lot. It's a bouncy, nimble bit of analogue house with sombre pads, busy melodies and a healthy scattering of percussion that brings plenty of kineticism to the mix. Three fine tracks that will surely have the world keeping an eye on Innershades from here on in.
