2014-01-27 12:12:12 - Published new episode of The Tape podcast. Special guest the Danish artist ODD SHAPES
Urban landscapes, desolate and crowded at the same time, as can happen only at nighttime. Small dark alleys between the skyscrapers of a modern metropolis. The wet asphalt with a slight but steady rain. The silence broken only by the sirens of the ambulances and the chatter of groups of drunk guys.
Here is the ideal setting for an epic, experimental at times futuristic and industrial sound. This is the sound of Odd Shapes, Danish beats-oriented artist, guest of the 7° episode of THE TAPE podcast.
The mixtape starts in an epic "key" (with Forest Swords and Holy Other). Epic theme that is never abandoned for the whole mix but, thanks to Four Tet, Burial, Oneohtrix Point Never, Illum Sphere, assumes ambient,
industrial and futuristic variations that alternate between them and find a meeting point in the Odd Shapes' songs (Nightfall, Inferior - Odd Shapes Remix).
