Artist – Shaolin Colour Cult
Title – Shadow Moses / Beirut
Blah Blah Blah has always been about discovering new electronically diverse music and in its 8th year this unbridled passion would not appear to be on the wane. Last time out they gave us sharp acidic deep house in the form of ‘Fortunate War’ this time up we are getting Mount Kimbie, Jon Hopkins inspired electronica from debutant ‘Shaolin Colour Cult’.
Originating from South London Shaolin Colour Cult has taken his urban origins and fused them with his new more peaceful south coast surroundings to create soundscapes that whilst devoid of lyrical clues have a deep sense of soul and story. Evocative layers of washed out ambience combine with tight melodic hooks and sharp beats to create a visceral yet sensitive sound. It may not have the manic energy of the most recent trap record, but dont let that deceive you, it is still every bit as potent.
