Boomkat Product Review:
Lucent UK electrosoul from the steady-rising Shanti Celeste and her pal, Funkineven.
Fresh from her Strung Up contribution to Future Times’ Vibes set, the Bristol-based, Chilean-born Celeste hearkens back to classic British A.I. techno and Detroit electro with the 808 hydraulix and lush, floating synth harmonics of SSS (OG Cut) sounding like a hybrid of Aux 88 and B12.
Funkineven flips the same ingredients as with a more patient, funk-curled 90’s Cut version on the back swapping the OG’s layered smoothness for grubbing key strokes and nudges.
