Shift Work are an electronic duo who have previously released on JD Twitchâ€™s Glasgow label Optimo Music. They debut on Houndstooth with â€˜Document IIâ€™, an EP developed from live jams on outboard analogue gear. â€˜Abandoned Handsâ€™ is lean and raw, an angular bassline and indecipherable vox punctuating the relentless 4/4 kick drum and pattering percussion. â€˜SBFMâ€™ is fuller-bodied, with the modulating bassline taking centre stage, draped in loose synths and topped with a deadpan vocal refrain.
Shift Work invited remixes from their associates, and the results are impressive, with DVA Damas dialling down the tempo and stripping back â€˜Abandoned Handsâ€™ further still, whilst Factory Floor return to remix duty on Houndstooth with a typically subtle yet infectious building take on 'SBFM'.
Shift Work support Tropic Of Cancer at London's Corsica Studios on November 12 while the launch night for the EP will take place at Power Lunches on December 2.
