When Shane The Crane began the quasi self-titled STC he probably never thought it would breach the realms of EDM the way he has with this weirdly brilliant collection of tracks. If the hollow ambience of intro Waiting For Shane doesn't instantly grab your attention, then 'Arabic Hippies' or 'Bubble Gum Pop Music' are bound too. 'Culture Club' stands out with its tribal influences running riot through a post-dubstep backdrop. Shane The Crane first release was 'D220' as the lead single but with tracks exuding the extraterrestrial charm of 'Goo' or the tropical house vibes of 'Her Orion' it must have been a hard call. This ambitious LP closes out in epic and almost cinematic fashion with 'The Birth of STC'.
