Having founded Om Records in 1995, Chris Smith knows a thing or two about electronic music. On his new EP under his Shiny Objects moniker he presents a collection of seven groove-heavy numbers for discerning DJ sets. On the storming opener, 'The Velvet Slide,' there's no denying the goose bump inducing synth line. Next up comes the steady building 'Flutter Vision' with a rolling groove pumped over a chopped up trippy distorted vocal. This is followed by the eight-minute magnum opus 'The Universe Unfolding' reminiscent of classic tripped-out rave anthems, brought up to speed into what could be the stand out track of the EP. Halfway through comes the downbeat instrumental 'Do It Now' breaking the release up into two halves. If the first three songs explored the velvet universe, then the final three tracks on the EP slide into the sensual side of the Shiny repertoire. Fans of the excellent 'Architects & Waves' compilation will be familiar with 'You're My Fool', and 'Nervous' and 'Tell Me What You Want' are perfect for getting down after dark.
