Now, ahead of that release, Shoebox have decided to finally unmask themselves via a digital-only album showcasing the best of their work to date and a track or two from their forthcoming EP.
When they started the project at the turn of the decade, Amsterdam friends Tom Trago and Maxi Mill decided on anonymity in order to allow the tracks they made to be judged purely on musical merit. Now the series is established theyve rightly stepped forward to take credit.
Falling Into The Right Place deftly showcases the depth and variety of the duos tracks as Shoebox, confidently moving between sample-heavy deep house blues (I Got A Feeling), heady ambient excursions (Sagittarius Rhymes With Aquarius, The Number of Good Givingness), tactile and jazzy dancefloor dreaminess (Room No More), defiantly intergalactic club cuts (The World of Aquarius, Blue Heat), harp-laden, bass-heavy house bliss (Other Way Round), and heavily edited, hard-to-pigeonhole brilliance (closing cut Tronada).
In turns hazy, colourful, intoxicating and out-of-this world, Falling in The Right Place is a fitting full stop to the first chapter of the Shoebox story.
