From his breakthrough on Hemlock through to releases on Hotflush and more recently Fina and Pennyroyal, Brighton-based producer Guy Andrews hit the ground running and seems to show no signs of slowing up with this dramatic beast of a release for Houndstooth. Considering it is only comprised of two tracks, this release manages to make a deafening impact not least thanks to the compelling power of Andrews' compositions. With a nod to the post rock quarter as well as a recognition of Throwing Snow's penchant for windswept bombast, both "In Autumn Arms" and "Let Your Shadow Decide" move with mighty orchestral brush strokes far beyond mere club-based concerns.
Having wandered from label to label, relative newcomer Reagan Grey seems to have settled nicely with the Shifting Peaks crew. Here on his second consecutive release for the label, he presents two versions of sultry club anthem "Shadows Over None": a swirly deep-house pop cut and a sleeker, more stripped-back soulful dub. It's the title track though that really shines - a percussive acid-gurner with more 90s pads than a vintage Bodyform advert.
