about

Ochre Flood is SHALT’s seventh release on APR and first since 2018’s Seraphim LP. The tight three tracker follows a series of edit packs that saw the London-based artist take on Far East Movement, The Pussycat Dolls and a range of recent French rap hits. Expanding on the ideas introduced in the ʃælt single series, Ochre Flood sees SHALT at his most focused, matching a billowing spatial dimension with a fine comb approach to texture and sub bass construction.

Each percussive hit crackles and burns on opener “Shudder”, which progresses methodically before letting loose with a reckless clarity. “Ochre”, already a radio staple, forms the carnivalesque backbone of the EP, throbbing with low end energy and a top line melody that insinuates itself deep in memory. Any perceived restraint in SHALT’s work is thrown to the wind on “Unlast”, the EP’s stormy closer that retains a sense of calm in its center even as the elements violently swirl.
