RIYL: a throwback to the early 00s/late 90s mixed with some Deep Forest

Label: Bad Magic

Behold, Sam Weston’s debut solo release, Shiraz Voyager. The Australian producer’s lead single, “FabergĂ© Egg Shaker,” goes down like a well-deserved drink of cold water after an hour toiling in the heat. “FabergĂ© Egg Shaker” can throw down with the best of deep house (think DJ Sprinkles/Sensate Focus) with its woozy synthesizer chords and its supple percussion line – I suppose this could also be termed balearic, no? I was sold within the first few seconds, to be frank. The opening notes remind me of Huerco S. with how far-removed and husky they sound. As Weston’s first solo song released to the public’s ears, it makes quite an impression. There’s a warm mist cascading the production with a children’s chorus singing in what appears to be a foreign language… however, for all I know, this could be English reversed but I’m not the most well-versed when it comes to linguistics. You’ll have to pardon my ignorance. The important thing is – “FabergĂ© Egg Shaker” is a wonderfully decadent track. Something to consider for those late night parties with the impending spring season upon us. Listen to “FabergĂ© Egg Shaker” below via the Bandcamp stream below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
