The supremely talent William Burnett makes a belated return to Emotional Response, and this time he s got Brooklyn-based studio pal John Beall in tow. Those who enjoyed the duo s release on the L.I.E.S. white label series should lap up Shimmer. It hits hard from the off, with -Snaker Charmer- delivering a velvet-clad punch to the guts. It s techno right from the top drawer, with darting electronics and drawn out pads riding a thunderous groove. The title track is impressive, too, with surging electronics and throbbing synths riding a techno-tempo groove crafted out of an old hardcore breakbeat. There s some more considered fare on offer, too, with the shimmering ambience of -Hold Me Take Me Leave Me- completing a superb package.
