Showcasing his versatility as a producer, Shadow Child adopts a dark tone on ‘OohTune’, before bursting into a piano led melody, pierced by drum-heavy bass line and cymbal clad breakdown.
An influential tastemaker in the world of dance, his Food Music label, set up in unison with close friendKry Wolf, provides a home for his productions, whilst outside of the studio, Shadow Child also hosts a weekly slot on Rinse FM playing the best in house and techno every Wednesday from 9pm to 11pm, featuring tracks from the likes of Dusky, Andrea Oliva and Jamie Jones.
