“Balearic” and “misty” come to my mind when I listen to Shams’ (as far as I know) debut release. “Bring me to the water’s edge and let me waste away” are one of the many dreamy verses in “Wasted.” I can’t find any information about the vocalist on “Wasted,” sadly, but her voice is absolutely gorgeous. There is the off chance that it is Shams himself and his falsetto’s just uncanny (just like Robert Alfons’ aka Trust) but until then, we’ll wait to hear more from him. “She Wanted To Watch,” the debut single from Shams, is just tropical and floats like a day dream. At only four minutes, it just left me wanting more. Hopefully, in the near future, we’ll continue to be hearing more and more from Shams as part of this wonderful house revival we’re living through. This record’s title is exactly what you’ll hear: a cloud. Check out “She Wanted To Watch” and “Wasted” below via the Soundcloud streams and see what you think of them. Cheers!

The Details

Long-anticipated debut by this deep-gunning Brooklyn rabble-rouser, incorporating expensive tone-float, Balearic daydreams, and paradise mnemonics into six exquisite entrees of his self-described “brunch house.” Brilliantly crafted splashes of rhythm nation seaside sunshine. Recent shows with Blondes and Teengirl Fantasy have seen the Shams sound shimmering into even fresher frequencies. One to watch. Edition of 400.
