Tough grooves on Music That Moves.
Shinedoe - Ahimsa
Ahimsa, the third release on Shinedoe's Music That Moves label, explores the stark side of her retro-leaning techno. The melodies are modest by Shinedoe's standards, a pared-down approach which takes cues from her dub mix of "Razor" on MTM002. "Ahimsa" and "Cortisol" only briefly pull back the curtain on their tuneful elements, leaving heavily swung grooves to deliver the message in a funky, minimal language. On "System," Shinedoe's take on the classic Reese bassline links hyperactive, cowbell-led rhythms and vocal snippets. It's the raviest of the three tracks and fit to shake a room to its core.
