Her Majesty's Ship is proud to announce its first release!
David Shaw and The Beat
"Infected" - EP
Released March 5th, 2012 (digital and vinyl 12")
Her Majesty's Ship / IDOL / LELP
Born and raised in Manchester, David Shaw is today based in France. His cultural duality has had a profound influence on his music, and allowed him to create an original identity somewhere between techno and indie, he, who never wanted to choose between guitars and machines.
As producer, writer/composer and performer, he has distinguished himself on the independent scene through various projects such as his own : Siskid (Initial Cuts, Meant Records), Animal Machine (Meant Records) and collaborations : Blackstrobe with Arnaud Rebotini and Ivan Smagghe (Beggars Banquet).
Today he's back with a new single, « Infected », the first extract of his album to be released on Her Majesty's Ship. This song is a cover of The The, released in 1986. David Shaw gives it a brand new interpretation, but without losing its catchy eighties pop mood.
The remixes are delivered by two great acts in electronic music : JD Twitch from Optimo fame and offer a brilliant old school flavoured version.
The other from Max Pask, half of Populette, offers a sweaty epic 12 - minute long version, ideal at sunrise after a long night of dancing.

Rob MyLifeIsAcid "Infected a tout ce qu'on désire d'une reprise : distance, personnalité, originalité et courage. Je ne peux que clamer haut et fort mon amour pour son parti pris de muter l'infected de The The en hymne slow dance synthétique pervers. Il ne quitte pas mes djs sets depuis des mois et des mois. Elegant, smart & fucking genius."
Mike Mind (Turbo) "cool record! having a hard time picking a favorite -- these are sound great. thanks!"
