Shivastep - Shivastep EP
Here’s a track to get your day started right. A few days ago Sean Nelson, the man behind the heavy hitting project Shivastep, contacted me on facebook in regards to checking out the early stream of his self titled ep (which drops today). Having seen word about the project on PRTLS recently, I knew that I’d like what I was about to hear but I don’t think anything at all could’ve prepared me for it. Now this ep is an extremely solid release from start to finish but what really blew my mind was the fact that this is Nelson’s debut, which lead me to think “holy shit!”. The ep kicks off in a way that’s both staggering and powerful with the opener “Superbass”. As the name implies, there’s no shortage of bass on this track but Shivastep truly shines (here and throughout the ep) when things begin to culminate like a perfect storm and Nelson blends elements of various genres, leaving the listener simply astonished and hypnotized. “Superbass” is nothing short of a whirlwind of electronic euphoria and the rest of the tracks found on the ep certainly follow suit. Luckily, you can find the release in it’s entirety over at soundcloud or bandcamp and also pick it up for a free download. It’s only the second day of October and already it’s looking like it will surely be another great month for music and with this debut from Shivastep, your week is certain to have a little extra kick to it.
