Car Crash Set is proud to present the debut single from London-based producer J-SHADOW. This double A-side release has received advance support on Rinse.FM, Rinse.FM France, and NTS Radio. "Hypnagogia" pairs deep space low end pulses with crashing shards of metal percussion, whipped into a frenzy by competing gravitaional pulls. "IOK-1" open with a celestial choir before slipping into an electrical field of grime flotsam. Exquisite headphone flight time. J-SHADOW has previously appeared on the Dream Eater compilation and will follow this single with a release on PRIME later this year.

This is rather difficult to describe. It's pretty minimalist with a strong focus on the drumming patterns, yet these are rather gentle and not aggressive. The more the listener progress through the tracks, some melodies start to come in smoothing a bit the edges. I'd recommend listening from beginning to end in one go to get the full scope of this EP.
