As a 10-year-old child listening to German techno, acid rave and Dutch trance the writing was pretty much on the wall for young electronic music fan, JamieFisher... Having made himself familiar with decks at the tender age of 13, the ensuing years of practise paid off when he was given a residency at a Doncaster warehouse party at the age of 17. As is natural nowadays for any aspiring DJ, Jamie also set to work making his own records whilst continuing to DJ alongside some of the scene's biggest players, and this Shapes EP is his latest offering... Thumping from the off, 'Hexagon' treads a solid progressive house path with glints of light coming from key stabs and plenty of twisted, driving percussion littering the middle ground. When the resounding chords ring out at the midpoint, things build to a tense break before bouncing along on hands-in-the-air passage of rolling beats. It's an underground slice of dance floor dynamite which will likely be lapped up by the likes of Dahlback, Deadmau5 et al. The remixes range from gnarled, more silvery tech edged affairs, to dubbed out, skipping drum patterns in a house mould and come from Lissat & Voltaxx, Marc Leaf and Colt Figure and Sem Thomasson offering something for everyone. Second track 'Octagon' has a thunderous, subliminal bottom end and comes to life with soaring synth lines, piston releases and frenzied percussion 'til it bubbles over into a heads-up slice of undulating, moody 4/4 of the sort to ignite any decent dance floor. Another selection of fine and deviant remixes from Benny Royal and Phillip O round off this inaugural LS City release with aplomb.
