A rather predictable and identikit wobble, lasers and riffling drums affair here, helped by the vocal, but not enough to make it truly likeable.
It's great to see this label still flying the flag for hard techy sounds, and no-one delivers this better than Canadian act Klonez, with his trademark hard electro drops and hard trance melodies.
The last Head High release was a year ago, and in the interim, rave-tinged nostalgia has conquered the charts. Thankfully, the version of the past that Shed presents on ‘Megatrap’ isn’t phoney or major label-funded, but rather a series of genuine, loved-up moments. From the furious breakbeats and spine-tingling hooks of 'Hex Factor' to the ecstatic rush of 'Megatrap' and the glorious piano house of 'Think It', this double-pack will make you fall in love with dance music all over again.
UK producer Owain Kimber comes good with three tracks that inhabit the interzone that dissects sublime deep house, dubby techno and bugged-out trackiness. The dramatic keys and pulsing bass of 'Night Echoes' is the most DJ-friendly, but it’s the shimmering, sensuous synths of ‘New Horizon’ that really hit the mark.
