Dawn of a New ERA!
Shapes of Light - ERA! (Original Mix) [LessThan3]

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).

If you dig the tune, download it for free here and show Shapes of Light some <3 over on their Facebook. Keep an eye out for some even bigger singles coming in the following weeks!
