Sharam – Spaci / Hemi | Yoshitoshi / collect1.5
Continuously reimagining his sound and style, the Grammy-winning artist Sharam digsdeep into his bag of production tricks for his new project Collecti, drawing heavily from the darker influences of techno. The album is comprised of a host of new material that he has been field testing with incredible response.
“Collecti is a culmination of work that represents my endeavors into a sound that has always been near and dear to my heart and central to my sets: Techno. For my last album Retroactive, I was fixated on all of my influences over the years, for this album, however, my focus is on the darker realms. These records are my dance floor experiments, my secret weapons, tracks that have been driving my sets and I’m excited to share this body of work with everyone.” – Sharam
‘Spaci’ is the closest the album gets to house territory, with a groovy bassline and scattering drum fills, while a remastered version of Sharam’s 2010 tour de force ‘Hemi’ populates this single’s B-side, a spastic eight-minute epic that pits chaotic synth squeals and chopped up noise against trudging, liquified bass.
