|1.||"Aftermath" (Tuff City Kids remix) (6:51)|
Shedbug first started coming through last year with appearances on THRHNDRDSVNTNN and Of Paradise, and now kicks off the Flux label with an ear-catching EP loaded with hardcore references and contemporary techno flourishes. "Aftermath" is an immersive affair that lets the dense layers of synths do the talking while the dusty drum machine jacks away underneath. By way of contrast "Siren" is a riotous bassweight monster full of tumbling breaks and doomsday stabs. Tuff City Kids bring a cheery tone to "Aftermath" on their remix while injecting some of that distinctive ravey attitude into the mix, and then "Recovery" cools the EP down with languid ambience and delicate beats.
