Podcast 187 - Shake

 

This week I’m very proud to have an exclusive mix from one of techno’s greatest artists : Anthony Shakir. His releases on his own label Frictional are an essential component of any self-discerning techno DJ’s box and form an important backbone to the history of the genre. From “Soundblaster” on Gigolo to his latest on FIT, Shake’s unique and often unusual take on techno keeps the listener guessing. I personally find it somewhat like a particular code or algebraic problem - once you “get it”, his music makes perfect sense. In an age when techno seems all too easy to produce or imitate, he is a perfect example of the wisdom of isolation. Whilst some of his contemporaries have had greater commercial success, Shake’s unique take on dance music remains fresh and startingly innovative. It is also life-affirming to see him back in the studio. There’s no tracklisting for this mix but the first track is from the aforementioned release on FIT.
