Simon Shreeve steps out from his solo alias Mønic and his group work with Kryptik Minds, to really show what he can do. Dark, looming techno structures tower above the listener, undercut with whipcracks of noisy sonics. Healing Bowl is released on Downwards as a 12” with a postcard accompaniment.

- Healing Bowl by Simon Shreeve
As dubstep appeared to be dying a slow and painful wobbly death, Kryptic Minds were putting out some awesome stuff on Loefah’s Swamp 81 label. This was my introduction to Simon Shreeve’s productions. He’s been a busy man, what with all the dubstep/ drum ‘n bass productions early on in his career, through to founding his Osirus Music label, banging out techno tracks as Mønic - with an EP recently on Tresor.
Now he pops up on Regis’ Downwards imprint with a solid 5-track EP of weed smoke paranoid atmosphere drenched stepping techno. I’d love to tell you that I was in some grotty Berlin bunker listening to these tracks at 4:00am -- but I actually played them in my kitchen while washing up a children’s candy floss maker. Still, they sound proper gnarly in this peculiar context. Heavy, sludgy stompers with plenty of space for the gloomy, apocalyptic/ futuristic sound design and dark ambient soundscapes Shreeve does so well. If yuo dig some of the Regis stuff on Blackest Ever Black, you should totally grab one, I bloody well am.
