Few artists have enjoyed such attention and warm acclaim as Shadow Child. Not just surfing the recent deep house / UK garage wave, Dave Spoon's alter-ego is one the producers that caused the tsunami in the first place. This comprehensive collection of originals and remixes showcases his influences with stark, sharp consistency. Each track deserves a place in all good house DJs' playlists but highlights can be found in the staccato minor key stabs and swaggering rhythm of "The Verdict", the oceanic depths of his stuttering, fuzzy two-step shuffle of "Southsea" and the speaker-shattering Metalheadz homage that is his remix of Justin Martin & Leroy Peppers' "Riding Spaceships". Twenty six reminders why Shadow Child has been one of the most influential artists of recent times, this is essential.
