FREE MUSIC: Shankles / Gully Foil EP

Sighting a variety of alternative electronic influences – from Four Tet to Clark to Nostalgia 77 to Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and beyond – the UK's Shankles weaves a sinister yet uplifting mix of twisted samples and dark breaks. His ability to seamlessly shift from delicate build-ups into claustrophobic crescendos is nothing short of refreshing.

The EP was mastered by another upcoming British electronic artist in S.maharba (BTS Radio/Error Broadcast/Ocular Science), whose finishing touches on the EP act as the fine veneer on a fantastic first release from Shankles. S.maharba has also contributed his own incredible remix of the track 6, 10, Half Of The Other.
