Sunil Sharpe _ Sheworks 002 [Works The Long Nights]
The second release of Blawan and Pariah’s Label is a masterclass in hijacking. Sunil Sharpe confidently diverts the label off to his trademark raw aesthetic. This is a strong release, with 4 truly excellent tracks.
First up is Landing Strip. Hell slowly breaks loose as the tension builds and is released by a heavily distorted acid line. Just close your eyes and imagine this playing in a club, with all those background elements filtering up.. Utter madness. Great track.
Saturana is another beast. Sharpe’s production is constantly twisting.. and this one reminds me of a modern, more fucked up take on those early PAS records.
Shudder Blaze refuses to be pinned down. Thumpin’ kicks.. Glitchness.. and a dark off beat stab – it’s got a huge amount of swagger to it. That rolling hat pattern is simply INSANE!! 🙂
Last track Roki is a real heavyweight. Noisy and funky as fuck, it’s ready to smash everything in its path. I love the way Sunil’s ideas evolve over the course of this tune. He’s a really skilled producer.
I honestly can’t pick out a single track as being a favourite. They’re all superb.
