Boomkat Product Review:
Brstl pillar, Shanti Maass aka Shanti Celeste, does dat electro-boogie for Julio Bashmore's Broadwalk label.
To date she's had a coupla smart 12"s for her own Brstl label - home to locals like October, Outboxx, Rhythmic Theory - and also the Idle Hands label/shop, where she works behind the counter. Her 'Universal Glow' is a bewt, tickling out spidery electro ticks and booming bass balanced with gorgeous Detroit pads to sound like some lost Reel By Real joint. B-side she factors similar chord progression to a bouncing, swinging Detroit house groove on 'Felix', and exposes her Chilean heritage in the nifty, shuffling percussion of 'Poto Seguro'.
