Given the success of his early EPs on Werkdiscs and Rush Hour, hopes are naturally high for this debut album from adopted Londoner Moire. The mystery producer has previously spoken of his love of the capital city, variously calling it "raw, yet so full of soul" and describing his style as "London techno". Certainly, there's a notable world-weariness amongst the attractive analogue electronics, enveloping chords and post-industrial dancefloor rhythms of Shelter. While there are unsettling moments - see the bubbling, acid-flecked warehouse hypnotism of "Rings" and the disarming sludge of "Stars" - for the most part Moire deals in hazy, late night beauty, smothering the album in intoxicating textures and flitting late night melodies (see the dawn-over-Hackney Marshes feel of "Mr Figure" for proof).
