Album of the month
Shadow Child 'Connected' (Food Music)
Shadow Child, aka Simon Neale, has invited an impressive roster of talent including Bodhi, T Williams, Huxley, Ben Pearce, S.P.Y, Ashworth and Supertanker to work with him on this diverse and exciting project. ‘Um’, with Bodhi, incorporates influences of d’n’b and bass within house. ‘Nothing Ever Hurts’ is a stunning, heartfelt vocal house collaboration with Ben Pearce, ‘London To Cambridge’ with rising star Ashworth is full of depth and drive, plus there’s a hook-up with Code 23 complete with old-skool breaks, and a jacking acid jam with Supertanker, which are set to be released as singles before the end of the year. Also included are Simon’s adept remixes of legendary tracks ‘Plastic Dreams’ and ‘Papua New Guinea’, both ideal ‘get out of jail cards’ for any DJ.
