Out today on Perez’ acclaimed 1985 Music imprint, “From A Vein” is a 14-track song-cycle of relentless, slithering bass. It includes the duo’s previously released “Dark Wing,” which makes its appearance about halfway through SHADES’ train station set.
“This album found us experimenting with new production techniques and exploring collaborations with other artists,” SHADES’ said in a joint press statement. “It’s a continuation but more refined body of work and an exploration of wider sonic fields more diverse in terms of influences, including ambient, field recording, soundtracks, as well as pushing our own vision of modern electronic music. The album was primarily conceived in Portland during the onset of the pandemic, which gave us plenty of time to focus in on the music and dial it in.”
