THe WHite SHadow (aka Anthony Godwin) authors the next chapter in our captivating story. Born with a techno soul, this fast-rising artist blends melodic beats with an incredible variety of influences which have seen him rapidly signed to Crossfrontier Audio, Tenampa, Chilli Mint Digital and Einmusika. The Goodbye EP on Chapter 24 is perhaps his finest work to date.
First up comes Station. A straight up banger of the purest kind, it pulses forward relentlessy as an arpeggio weaves around a chunky, repeating bassline. Blippy, twisted melodies are introduced and it’s game, set and match…a surefire winner.
Next on the EP is Come On, another banger…this time taking us on a melodic voyage. Combining old school hip hop, electro and futuristic references into a unique and cohesive whole, this piece builds hypnotically around another arpeggiated synth. Once in the break, an evil jazz-influenced melody unfurls and the sub takes hold, taking us home.
Finally we finish on a peak, with the eponymous Goodbye. Dark, menacing, deliciously dramatic and technically accomplished - a fitting end to an impressive and forward thinking EP. The story moves on apace.
