British producer Shadient brings to life dark places, long shadows and sharp edges with a new single “Abberate,” the first glimpse of his upcoming four-track “Divide” EP set for a release on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations in April.
Grimy synths that build into mechanical, distorted basslines of “Abberate” make this premier release a shining example of Shadient’s blend of industrial, minimal electronica that fuses elements of techno, bass, and big beat sounds. His music evokes images of raves at the wee hours, at once primal and extraterrestrial.
“‘Abberate’ is the first single off my upcoming EP, ‘Divide,’ with Gud Vibrations. My primary focus with this entire release was inspired by the idea of delving into one’s nostalgia and to explore the first pieces of dance music I ever heard.
With that in mind, the music on this EP is heavily inspired by the likes of Afx, Squarepusher, old braindance stuff, with a lot of big beat like The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers. It felt very natural to be writing music like this as the influence all originate from my country (The UK). I’m incredibly excited to have this EP coming out and glad to have it be on Gud Vibrations!” – Shadient
