Launching their collaborative career in 2014, SHDW & Obscure Shape are at the forefront of a new generation of artists leading the resurgence of timeless techno. Presenting a maturity well beyond their years in both their production efforts and track selection, the duo have become firm favourites for the modern audience and yet still present as an untapped act, with the capacity to enter into the upper echelon of the beloved genre. Multifaceted in their approach and commitment to the circuit, the pair feel equal comfort running in underground circles and global events alike; testament to their unbridled creativity and mass appeal.
Deeply influenced by the cardinal cuts of techno’s rich history, the self-confessed perfectionists harbor an extensive anthology of records dating back to the ‘90s, which functions as a continuous source of inspiration for their artistic vibrancy. With an insatiable appetite for knowledge and growth at the epicentre of their flourishing career, dance music’s impetuous progression is a welcomed challenge for the talents, who’s mantra remains, ‘an artist who no longer surprises his audience is no longer an artist’ Now entering a new chapter in the SHDW & Obscure Shape saga, the duo launched their new imprint Mutual Rytm; their second venture within the label realm to date.
The project showcases a new dimension of scope for the pair who aim to channel the authentic perspectives of both established and up-and-coming talents through their platform. Navigating a new and diverse path for the electronic music landscape, the imprint is a celebration of innovation, originality and diversity, with a focus on timeless cuts for the future development of house and techno.
