So Halloween is over, and with it all the obligatory play lists of “dark” music and imagery. Fall is in full swing, and with the inevitable coming of winter it’s time to leave the summer flings to the side, choose your main piece and get settled in for the long cold months to come. Nobody wants to be sleeping alone when it’s minus 20 outside. This yearly phenomenon is also widely known (on the internet) as “Cuffing Season”.
With Cuffing Season in full swing, our boy Shift comes threw with this essential soundtrack of hazy R&B drenched, Intimate 808 Club music (Shout to Brenmar). Guaranteed to tug the heart strings of even the most icy would be partner, and an excellent go to when you need to give Drake’s album a rest for the day.
Shift has been steadily building his following over the last 18 months with a stream of ear catching sets, mixes and productions both on his own and in collaboration with regular partner in crime Leans. His sound is rooted in the 808 drum beds of Rap, but with a soulfulness, depth and emotion often overlooked, yet crucially needed. Think Three 6 Mafia meets Teddy Riley on MDMA at the after party, and you get the idea.
Grab a box of tissue and a tub of haagen dazs and get ready to cry.
