The Soulshapes – Mandala EP

The Soulshapes Mandala EP Nightbird Music
The Soulshapes will be a new name to most, but you'll probably know the members Rocco and Torre Bros from releases on such respected labels as Buzzin Fly, Freerange and Komplex De Deep.

Here, as The Soulshapes, they serve up a two-tracker for Sebastian Davidson's ever-checkable Nightbird Music, with Mandala coming in no-nonsense Original and Dub flavas. The Original is a 7.5-minute instrumental workout with both Afro/tribal influences and a hint of cosmic disco, while the Dub ditches the analogue synths and brings the African percussion to the floor.

Not being the biggest fan of Afro-oriented vibes this wouldn't be topping my personal Nightbird Top 10, I have to admit, but there are floors that lap this stuff up, and Soulshapes' fusion of ethnic  percussion with such a minimal approach overall is interesting, too.

Out: This week
