about

Coming at the end of an almost year long hiatus, SHALT returns to the fold with ʃælt, the first in a series of singles focused on sound mechanics and loop-based dance forms. A sonic extension of the sheer physicality and cataclysmic sound design introduced on his two previous Astral Plane Recordings releases (Acheron and Inertia), ʃælt sees the recent London transplant exhume those forms from the narrative realm in order to experiment with functionality, crafting a series of absolutely cracking club tracks in the process.

BPMs are kept low across ʃælt's three tracks and fans of SHALT's mix work, for the likes of Solid Steel and Truants, will recognize the microwave warm lilt of "Warm Chaos" and the crunching dramatic sway of "First Pulse". Like all of SHALT releases, rhythms tend to emerge from a dense field of electricity, but the drums are more immediately accessible on ʃælt, lending a sense of distinct movement to the corporeal intensity his previous work has introduced. The "outsider" label is rather contrived at this point, but if this isn't an outsider record for peak time then we don't know what is.
