Review: Anthony Shakir – Frictionalism 1994-2009 remixes

Kyle Hall aside, it’s hard to pick two up-and-coming producers better suited to the task of giving Anthony Shake Shakir’s off kilter Detroitisms a contemporary tweak than FaltyDL and Space Dimension Controller. In the first of two Rush Hour-curated releases, Belfast youngster SDC – fresh off a stunning EP on resurgent Belgian imprint R&S – turns his and to the seminal “Detroit State Of Mind”, first released in 1998. He slows down the tempo here, with bubbling synths and claps forming an analogue electro-disco funk melody that is becoming the SDC signature. It also contains that sharp, granite hard kick that underpinned previous tracks, most memorably “Transatlantic Landing Bay” from the Temporary Thrillz EP. It even sounds great at +8.
