With the ‘Deuce’ project started, both Dettmann and Shed follow their combined outlet in their own apart productions and sets. Pursuing a harder sound, ‘Equalized #003’ displays a rougher edge towards Shed’s previous material, also combining all those elements into a old-school not old-school state.

The A-side, with a strong and steady groove, gives the track a large amount of energy throughout. Just letting the beat go by itself in the beginning and end brings in a rougher edge to it. You can’t sit still to this track! The focus is on a organ, in somewhat the same melodic sense as The Vision on Metroplex; Shed manage to create a timeless piece as a definition of this year’s sound – as always with Equalized. Not only is the groove otherworldly, the tripping aspects are intact because of the very subtle arrangement differences that was introduced with ‘Deuce’. Two things that usually are very hard to combine.

On the other side, the track remain at the same atmosphere as the A-side, but bringing in a different groove that feels more locked – in a good sense. Heavy warehouse materials combined with that nuclear-electric swirling defines this track as a solid one – bringing not only the familiar sound which Shed has built up over the years, but also bringing something new to the table. An effort that seems more natural to him than to anyone else in the scene.

Do not miss out on this one.

    What a record! Amazing form for Shed (and his aliases) in 2009.
