Llega a Diskette Gomila el británico John Shima, el maestro tejedor de melodías que cruza las líneas entre el techno y el electro

Este productor inglés que pese a ser desconocido por la mayoría se le considera uno de los nombres más prometedores a la hora de reivindicar la estela del IDM de artistas como B12 y el Techno de Detroit. Tiene una visión de la música electrónica profunda, con bordes analógicos y conmovedoras melodías que hacen pensar en un viaje al espacio exterior. Tiene referencias en sellos tan exigentes como Emotions Electric, BOE Recordings, Ferox, Contrast, B12´s Firescope Records. John Shima esculpe sus canciones valiéndose de sintetizadores modulares y plasma su universo cósmico con una finura que parece hecha a medida para sonar en la DisKette Gomila, considerado por muchos como el club con mejor sonido underground de la ciudad.

John Shima’s stream on SoundCloud

ENG: Hailing from the heartland of British techno, Sheffield’s John Shima is one of the leading lights in UK electronics. His beautifully crafted sounds have graced a host of imprints including Distant Worlds, Exalt Records and, of course, FireScope. It is to the latter that Shima returns with his long awaiting debut album, The Lonely Machine.
John Shima is a master melody weaver, with this first LP attesting to his deftness of touch. Celestial chords and star gazing synthwork permeate this ten track odyssey. The musical heritage of Shima’s hometown, the elegance, majesty and subtlety of British electronics, is invoked from the needle drop. A range of influences come to the fore in this 2LP. Skirting around the edges of astral ambience and tonal texture are nods to industrial history, the rasp and resonance of rhythms in “Empires”, with the inspiration of Detroit surfacing in the future funk of “Phase Distortion” and “Linear.” Dreamscapes are painted in delicate hues, the fragile movements of “Accepting”, with brooding works adopting thicker basslines and ruffled notes as with “Distrust.” Nevertheless, it is the incandescent brightness of Lonely Machine that truly shines. Radiant pieces of elating electronics, complex and joyful compositions that chime with unbridled hope and open-hearted optimism.
