After opening the new season of Apron Records‘ adventures with the promising ‘Road Works Part 1‘, the rather secretive London-based DJ and producer Shamos returns to Steven Julien’s imprint with ‘Games and Dreams‘, a four-track EP playing in the same category of raw offbeat house and techno melanges.
If ‘Palace Pavillion‘ finds him exploring a rather straightforward house momentum, ‘Crisp Biscuit‘ is a fun and fizzy 303-laden jam. Flip the record and ‘Real Dreams‘ welcomes you in a lush jungle of ambient-imbued sounds whilst ‘Bound For Borders‘ gets back to a Janus-faced, basement vibey mixture of hissy hi-hats, raucous bass spurts and washed-out pads.
Games and Dreams is released via Apron Records on 1st November 2016.
