Audiophile Deep Records
Out: 27th December
Former radio DJ Bojan Chille Jr. puts down his decks only to pick them up again in a recording studio. With an ear for what makes a great radio edit and for a tune which earns song requests long since its heyday, we are treated to the connoisseur's ideal. Naming himself Mashinski, he releases two fresh and original dance tracks collectively known as Shinjitsu. This debut record from Mashinski paves the way for expertly honed DJ nourishment that stands tall on the dance-floor.
A heavy-duty kick with hand-claps begins the first track. It's called Land Of The Rising Sun. Within the first few bars, a resonant synth strikes down with airy chords which chime and rumble among fizzing static. The persistent rhythm pushes on through the thickness of sound as new vibrating tones begin to shine forward. These rise in amplitude before a quick-stepping hat riff adds a new tempo to the dynamic. A conjunction of melody rolls along with perfectly engineered kinesis while the rhythm section explores various nooks in the ambient structure.
With quick-firing electronic blips and a heady bass drum, the next track begins. A droning synth delivers a strong tone across the top like a layer of radiant and blinding sunlight. Shifting melody at certain intervals gives the impression of variations in the flux of nature itself. As the chords drown out all else from our mind, an extra layer of rhythm is brought in. This new tempo sits on-top and snugly mirrors the initial beats to form a stumbling synthesis of drum and percussion. Wavery warps of synthesiser then fill the voids with astral colours of sound which cause the dough to rise with laser-zaps and rhythmic breaks. Shinjitsu is a progressive and exploratory track which contains a vast space to explore with our ears.
