Premiere: Shinoby – Oblivion

Following in the wake of his abstract album ‘Lucide Stragi issued in 2019, Italian producer Omar Contri returns as Shinoby on his Verona-based label ISTHEWAY, marking the eighth release on the imprint.

Consisting of four tracks, the EP features two solo tracks and two remixes on the flip side. Mass Prod delivers a sneaky techno banger characterised by a warm modular feeling, whilst on the flip, Triš & Buttechno formulate a techno dub aesthetic in a quietly perfected formula as in the mid-90’s (à la Basic Channel).

Mastered by Marco Pellegrino and featuring artwork by Fernanda Rizzo, our pick from the release is the brazen stomper ‘Oblivion‘ – thanks to its pent up acidity, chronic noise aesthetic and saturated industrial techno trips, this tracks shifts with rhythmic analogue filters and rugged drums.

‘The Global Groove’ is scheduled for release on 15 June via ISTHEWAY. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
