Boomkat Product Review:
China’s Shao follows a 12” and opening credit on the ‘Dreamy Harbour’ compilation for Tresor with ‘Doppler Shift’, 6 tracks of greyscale techno and Alva Noto-esque minimalism taken from the 9-track digital release.
Picking up where his ‘Sensi (Edit)’ left us in the ‘Dreamy Harbour’, Shao heads in pursuit of a immersively textured and effortlessly rolling structures across ‘Doppler Shift’, keening from the vapourised metallic tang and shadowy bass strokes of the intro cut and into the clipped swagger of ‘Reflection Pt.1’, which recalls Carsten Nicolai & Olaf Bender’s Diamond Version gear, and then dissolving into the filigree moire of keys and swivelling bass on ‘Bubble’.
The tougher ‘Bubble (Version)’ follows fathoms deeper, l;eating to the steeply vaulted, hallucinatory sound design of ‘Atmospheric Refraction In The Desert’, which sounds something like Dylan Carlson meets Donato Dozzy, and the sublime ambience of ‘Winter 2012’ recalls Shinichi Atobe at his sylvan, ghostly best.
