German producer Sebastian Kramer, aka Redshape, brings forth two darkling, unrelenting techno tracks from live sets performed in London and Paris on the ever growing catalogue of Delsin Records. “London,” as Delsin puts it, “has a hypnotic groove that teases you as elements drop in and out.” Redshape tightly bobs and weaves with his production with such ferocity, it’s to the point your hips will begin gyration without you noticing. It’s just filthy techno with no gimmicks, and nightclub fodder for the years to come. Of the two tracks on here, “London” is a bit more dance floor friendly in my opinion. “Paris,” the B-side, is, as Delsin puts it again, “much more playful, colourful pixelated melodies dancing about the mix.” Redshape brings the sweaty club floor to the comfort of your own home (or wherever your set-up may be), and for 10 euros it can be yours. Listen to the preview of both tracks by clicking the Buy Now button below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
August 2016 saw Running Back release a first volume of live tracks from Redshape, but January 2017 sees the much loved artist return to Delsin, his most regard label, for a second offering of the same. This time the EP has one track made in Paris, and one in London, and both are filled with the sort of beautifully bleak and lo-fi sounds that have made this man such a standout artist over the years.
Up first is 'London,' a chugging track that builds in pressurised layers of coarse hi hats, gurgling bass and pinging kick drums. It is a hypnotic groove that teases you as elements drop in and out and hisses of static and broken little guitar riffs add some cheeky funk. On the flip-side, 'Paris' is much more playful, with colourful pixelated melodies dancing about the mix, industrial drums working down low and steppy synths fleshing things out. Overall it sounds like a future disco for inebriated robots and is one of Redshape's more party starting tracks.
