Electronic duo WIDE BLUE delivers its very first work on ELASTICA Records. SHADOW EP is a little gem of Bass Music highly influenced from Dub and 90's Bristol sound, 4 tracks that well define the wide sound spectrum of the project.
Title track "SHADOW" is a melting pot of influences that come from the oldskool jungle reese bass, dominating the entire track, to the hypnotic afro-beat on which the vocals sit down to create a cinematic atmosphere all tune long.
Bass & Beats dominate also the second track, "NEVER SPARED", a solid minimal beat underlined by a gliding dub bassline, and a sequence of vocals that complete this paint with a bunch of detailed digital effects .
"DAY AFTER DAY" is a tribute to the pioneers of dubstep sound. Vintage reverbs, leftfield effects and massive sub-low give the character of this vocal tune.
The surprise ending of the EP is the experimental "Dog straying loose". A prototype for a minimalistic post-trip hop sound in which the climax is given by a chain of vocal tension, punchy sub frequencies and a creepy synth that instantly take you down into an introspective mood.
