DJ / RUPTURE and MATT SHADETEK’s three-track EP, Shallows, features their strongest dub-wise productions to-date. Featuring two tracks from their new mix, Solar Life Raft, and a vinyl exclusive, Shallows is a storm surge from New York’s Tropical movement. Shadetek’s “Strength in Numbers” kicks things off right with its triumphant reggae horns and a heavy sine-wave bass. This tune has become an anthem at their Dutty Artz parties and Rupture has been wrecking dancefloors with it across the globe. Title track “Shallows” brings a busy electronic R&B atmosphere with weird bleeps arranged with an ear for pop. Side B finishes up the EP with “Underwater High Rise featuring DJ Kiva,” a deep-sea slow-burner for fans of Shackleton and Pinch. Rupture and Shadetek’s effortlessly original productions showcase the finest in American dubstep. Tunes have DJ-friendly intros and are cut hot and heavy at 45 RPM. This is the first of a 12-inch series from the Agriculture, committed to pushing cosmopolitan bass sounds from Brooklyn rooftops to the world.
