shutdown: after death.

Late night lo-fi downtempo grooves from shutdown, a producer that hails from Monterrey, Mexico and a sound that brings the ghetto palms of a pre-gentrified Brooklyn boulevard to life. Bits and pieces (drums, mostly) are instantly identifiable as samples (and might be too long should anyone official notice) but thrown through the ringer and transmogrified into something new – old thread in a new loom. after death. is unfailingly soulful but not overwrought. “silence” is a treasure of restraint, laid back vibes that works on both the emotional and physical planes. “dark sketch” is a short little tone poem – gentle waves tossing the listener to and fro in a pleasant kind of turbulence. As a five track EP, this feels too short (2:43 is the longest of the five tracks) but still satisfying.
