Shapesift Crafts Downtempo Excellence With Double Release “Bulan/Void Fraction” [Time Resonance Music]
Philadelphia native Connor Schmitt aka Shapesift is an electronic musician set to turn heads with his latest double release “Bulan/Void Fraction.” This talented experimentalist has an uncanny grasp on creating soundscapes that are both euphoric and ambient, while also concocting immersive and thought-provoking sound designs. Both tracks bloom to life with contemplative melodies and drip with sonorous sub-bass layers, while tight, percolating percussive elements add texture and necessary grounding components.
Shapesift exhibits a deft touch with his delicate yet intricate production style and the culmination of his various yet harmonious sonic elements results in two tracks that are both stylish and enigmatic. With this latest effort, Shapesift announces himself as voyager prepared to dive deep into the fringes of experimental bass as well as an artist with the chops and unique style to make waves in the scene. By striking deep emotional chords while also maintaining lucid intellectual overtones, Shapesift has the ability to set himself apart from the pack while also connecting deeply with listeners.
Before engaging with digital music production, Shapesift played bass, guitar, keys, and drums while performing and writing with several musical projects. His background as a multi-instrumentalist is clearly evident in his holistic approach to production. A passion for presenting atypical soundscapes drives forward Shapesift music, which is intended to engage and entertain, but also to heal. Keep your eyes out for this Rust Music star and what he has in store for 2020.
