8/10 Ant Staff review, 01 August 2019

You can’t cop those early Vatican Shadow tapes for love nor money so if you’re a fan then news of them all being remastered at D&M, Berlin for a series of vinyl editions should make you crack a smile at least. Kicking off with this here  ‘Byzantine Private CIA’ double LP which also includes tracks from the ‘Mural of Saddam’, and ‘Yemeni Commandos’ cassettes. These tracks were all released circa 2010/2011 and possess a primitive, basement DIY fidelity which would be the seeds for a bigger, grander sound that would see Vatican Shadow tearing up dancefloors including Berghain, and him appearing on their in-house label Ostgut Ton with production assistance from Telefon Tel Aviv's Josh Eustis. It’s actually kinda interesting rewinding to the roots of Vatican Shadow where we can really hear a very strong Muslimgauze influence and hints of the more techno sound Dominick Fernow would later pursue - perhaps taking it to its logical conclusion.
