An extended collection of hazy dub techno, drone and downtempo from Swedish producer Shielding.
With previous releases on Kimochi and UntilMyHeartStops (as Okänd Konstnär), ‘Collecting Seaweed’ is the artist's fullest body of work to date, comprising six tracks cherrypicked from a vast set of recordings produced over the last two years.
The record’s pulse recalls Basic Channel and the clicks-n-cuts of Jan Jelinek and SND, but its textures are loose and painterly. Looping, pulsating textures sprawl out to create rejuvenating, emotive soundscapes. Patterns repeat, but no two strokes are the same. [info sheet from distr.]
