Release Date

Shackleton continues his voyage away from the moody dance music of his early years and into a brave new sonic world on Primal Forms, an LP made in collaboration with Polish clarinetist/multi-instrumentalist Wacław Zimpel. There is certainly a through line between this record and Tunes Of Negation, Shackleton's previous outing on Cosmo Rhythmatic. Here Shackleton and Zimpel blast the sounds of Jon Hassell’s Fourth World into hyperspace, blending them with pulsating minimalism, drone, free jazz, new-age and a whole cornucopia of other styles. The result is a trio of verdant pieces remaining wildly in a league of their own.
