Bandshell released his first record last year through Hessle Audio, and will start 2013 with a new release, Caustic View, on Liberation Technologies.
We picked Liberation Technologies as a label to watch in 2013, and Bandshell’s certainly one of the most interesting up-and-comers around. We were aware of him a couple of years before his Hessle Audio release due to a series of lonely space-funk tracks uploaded to Soundcloud (now all deleted), but last year’s degraded ‘Moleskin’ marked an artist with new-found intent, and his Hessle Audio EP was even crunchier and weirder. Which wasn’t to say it wasn’t danceable, because when DJs used it right it really worked.
You can watch the video for the first track from Caustic View, ‘Landfill’, above.
