Press Info:
SHDW & Obscure Shape offer up their first EP on new imprint Mutual Rytm as they drop five fresh and expansive techno cuts across their ‘Poetic Justice’ EP.

A duo that has ascended to become leading names within today’s techno landscape, SHDW & Obscure Shape continue to grow and evolve while shaping their own unique sound fusing classic influences with a modern touch. Their latest project saw the birth of Mutual Rytm – a new imprint launched in early 2022 set to showcase a deep dive into the duo’s musical roots via their own productions alongside material from the label’s close family of likeminded artists. Following the label’s opening multi-artist VA and the first solo EP from Berlin’s Lars Huismann, June welcomes the first solo installment from the label founders themselves as they ready a killer five-tracker set to make an impact.

A1’ Turbulence’ sets the pace as the duo delve into nimble rhythms which ebb and flow effortlessly to reveal a hypnotic slice of modern techno permeated with classic, old school cues, while ‘Pulse’ takes up a darker aesthetic, keeping the energy high as metallic drum licks guide driving sub-bass and resonant stabs. On the B- side, title cut ‘Poetic Justice’ balances warping vocals with swinging percs amongst a layered, drum-laden kinetic workout, exemplifying the duo’s drive for combining and contrasting various shades of techno. Next up, ‘Set It Off’ welcomes the introduction of expansive melodies to offer an entrancing late-night cut, before turning to the unhurried grooves, salient hats and sweeping atmospherics of ‘Killing Me Softly’.

Digital bonus ‘Before Sunset’ once again delves into lighter, breezy territories while keeping the classic rolling techno touches throughout, shaping up the package with a powerful yet agile closing production.
