Boomkat Product Review:
Shed comes up strong on his 4th album of melancholy/ecstatic atmospheres and expert groove control on The Final Experiment for Modeselektor’s Monkeytown.
We’re not sure if he’s doing a Wiley by insinuating that this is indeed his final experiment, or whether it’s a sort of swansong for a sound that has run its conceptual course, but either way his 4th album is a classic-sounding suite of matured, mutable hardcore and AI techno themes.
Between the breathy reverie of Xtra at the prow to the ambient fluffiness of System Azac at stern, he favours a palette of looser breaks, smudged techno patterns and diaphanous, drifting harmonies that don’t so much demand from the listener as cajole a wistful sense of nostalgia.
In that respect, there are some nice soft rave moments in the Link-esque tone float of Extreme SAT, and the buoyant breaks of Er1761, and the nimbly whisked breaks of Flaf2.
