You can stick a five on a Shackleton before you've even put the needle on it at the moment.. The lad knows what he's doing. Immediately you know this is him from the subtle processing of the 'Everyone starts from point one' sample which kicks the track off without needing the concrete confirmation of the nimble middle-Eastern percussion and bassy uber-throbs. What I'm particularly liking about this one is the way he slowly ratchets up the intensity 'til you almost can't bear it before pulling it back at just the right moment. As with much of his stuff you could argue that he's not doing anything massively new for himself but when someone's got such a unique sound and they utilise it so consistently awesomely it's hard to care. King Midas Sound contribute a fine reworking on the flip, Hitomi vocals and all, which I reckon comes off a little like Mezzanine-era Massive Attack with Beth Gibbons on the mic. Open up that top drawer and make some space for this bad boy.
