Always pushing their production to new levels, Boston-based duo Shapes of Light unleashes their biggest track on LessThan3 Recordings to date in ERA!, an acid-driven house tune with a strong focus on crisp and heavy percussive elements. With early support from mainstay DJs such as Lazy Rich, Felguk, and Gregori Klosman to name a few, it seems like the ERA! of Shapes of Light may be right around the corner.
Cutting straight to the meat and potatoes, ERA! skips the intro mumbo-jumbo and instead opens with an instantly gripping beat-driven build. Drumline snares and a looming piano melody lead you into this immensely crunchy and clean acid-drop. While some may perceive them as bare, the breaks in this track rely more on raw, analogue house sounds than they do wailing future-synth melodies. It really all comes together in the second drop with what we like to call “Dat Snap” (you’ll know it when you hear it).
