9/10 Brett Staff review, 21 October 2009
The ever-mighty Shackleton returns, post-Skull Disco and now residing in Berlin whose Perlon imprint have packaged up his new triple 12" in fine style. Three EPs had me really excited from the sample stream that was kicking around a month or so back and it kicks off excellently with '(No More) Negative Thoughts' based around a fleet-footed dub bassline, cutting stabs, littered handclaps and the insistent repetition of a word which could either be 'cancel' or 'council'.. Sounds like someone's not had his bin emptied. I'm not gonna go through every track so I'll get more general with it: although the sub-bass is still present and correct there's more of an emphasis on a traditional bass sound (dub gone super agile), warped and cut vocal samples feed in and out (almost in a Burial style from time to time), the Eastern sound is still there (toned down ever so slightly and given a more pronounced sci-fi inflection), it sounds like he's getting a little into that 'future garage' style at times and as ever, he's teaching everyone a thing or two about a satisfyingly spacious mix. To cut directly to the chase, I think this is the best stuff he's ever done - minimal in sound but with maximal atmospherics, fitting in with the Perlon sound whilst being instantly recognisable and forging new paths for techno, dubstep, 'bass music' or whatever, seemingly effortlessly, in the process. A staggering work of epic genius!
