Release Date: March 21st 2012
After his sublime remix for Hitsafe’s‚ Let the Acid Out’ on Shaddock’s first release, Tin Man makes a deadly return to Shaddock Records, delivering his most dancefloor oriented record to date.
Opening track ‘T_DD_T_RR_Y’ sees kicking beats with a genealogy harking back to finest Chicago house, yet done with contagious feather-light energy of UK funky and a naughty bassline gliding perfectly between cheeky rave chords and their moody older brother. ‘S_MPLE_HOUSE’ continues with this blindingly effective simplicity, dreamily muted chord stabs, rolling congas in ecstatic space over a warm round bass.
On the flip on ‘AUT_REPEAT’, crystalline synth shards coalesce in complex forms and continue in icey determination as the beat sneaks up underneath, propelling into an absolutely blistering workout. ‘DJSN_K’ rounds up on a perky high, an ebullient synthline with crunch and a punchy beat so frontal it might make you blush. Rave bones akimbo – Tin Man steals the pure dance!
