Manchester’s techno twosome Shadow Dancer are once again returning to GND records, this time to release their second full length album, the aptly named, ‘Brothers in Arps‘.
The first single release, ‘Shake‘ sees the duo trying their hand at vocals and if you could pick a vocalist to work with Shadow Dancer, David AKZ from the Autokratz would be a near enough perfect choice. Similar in tone to Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan, David AKZ does well to compete with the duo’s hard hitting techno hooks.
Offering up remixes are GND’s homeboy, The Hacker, California’s Vin Sol and London’s Posthuman. But it’s the duo’s own club version that’s the real winner of the bundle, filled with scattered hats, subtle, glitchy vocals and the usual serving of dark techno synths to lure you in.
Out May 19 on 12″ and digital download.
