Track: Shelter | Artist: Vandelux
And he's back. Stepping away from the signature mashups and remixes that launched him into the spotlight early last year, Vandelux serves up Shelter, a hard-hitting, 'organic trap' original that will literally make your mind go boom.
Deliciously sample-heavy, Shelter resembles the lullaby you never knew existed. The Luxembourg-based producer tosses together 1950's war documentary recordings with menacing brass to create a dismal, yet danceable rhythm. Evoking a similar aesthetic to Montreal producer Socalled, Shelter allows the listener a glimpse into the past while weaving present day hip-hop licks into each riff. I think the term 'duck and cover' is applicable here, but let's go ahead and diagnose this as a 'duck and twerk' beat for good measure. Cop the free download of Shelter in the Soundcloud player below!
