Under the pseudo of his brand new SHADOW CHILD production project, Dave Spoon recently released his smoothy groovy 2 track self-titled Shadow Child EP on DirtyBird records (read full article here!) and both tracks are an absolute smash. Both tracks have been doing well across the Beatport charts, but, and more importantly, they’ve been a pleasure to have on constant play in my own personal collection at home.
To our delight, Spoon has been very active on the Shadow Child production front, with a brand new remix up, several more in the making, and now, a brand new hour-long mix of his own released originals and remixes, forthcoming reworks, tech house goodness from Dirty Bird labelmate Justin Martin, and a collection of warm grooves well-suited for this mixtape package.
At the 16 minute mark there’s surprisingly even a sneaky inclusion of a minimal dubstep track, Shadow Child’s own bootleg of an incredible gem Leviticus‘ ‘Burial’ that seems to mesh very well with the rest of the tech works, not to mention speaks volumes about Shadow Child’s sonic versatility. I think Spoon’s definitely exploring an interesting cross-section between very UK-pioneered style dubstep with single hit drum patterns & shuffly high hats combined with his own layers of perky yet restrained ’post-house’ (?) reverberations. I hope he continues to experiment along this line of moody yet minimalistic sound.
Overall, this mix is incredible and is free for personal consumption. Perfect soundtrack to get a little lost to for those night-time coastline drives back and forth between San Diego and LA.
