Dutch synth wizard Shook has just dropped his long awaited, second, five track EP, ‘Rise And Fall’
From the opening note and accompanying drone of ‘Through The Fire ‘ you’ll know one thing about this EP, it’s big, huge in fact. Busy P can call Justice’s new album “Stadium Disco” all he wants, to me, this is what “Stadium Disco” sounds like. Shook’s musicianship shines though as he takes on ‘80’s Electro Boogie effortlessly working his way through complex Funk basslines and soaring melodies. As the EP progresses it begins to chill a little, bringing out the smoother side of Shook’s music while still retaining the same huge scope. Even the intimate electric piano of ‘Hold Tight’ is more ambitious a track than many of it’s contemporaries. Elsewhere, such as on ‘Rise And Fall’, the EP sees Shook channelling everyone from Herbie Hancock to Daft Punk with Jazz, Disco, Electro Boogie, Funk, House & Electro all being drawn on to make this musical masterpiece. A Stunning second EP.
