After the release of his album Elaenia in 2015, Sam Shepherd was dubbed one of Britain’s most talented young producers. He then decided to set off on tour for a good while to explore the world of jazz, bringing an entire band with him. After this, rather out of the blue, he ended up performing live each night as the opening act on The xx’s 2017 tour. Having to improvise all alone with a Buchla synth in front of 20,000 people for an hour and a half makes you rethink things. “I thought what I’d come out with would be really melodic and slow-building, but what I ended up playing was some of the most obtuse and aggressive music I’ve ever made. It was liberating”.
And that’s exactly what comes cross on the album – which, in a nutshell, is a display of creativity, hybridization and open-mindedness. The gifted English electronic musician mixes 2 step jazz and electronica on the simply divine Last Bloom, dabbles in drum ‘n’ bass on Anasickmodular and nods towards UK bass on LesAlpx. His competition has some catching up to do. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
