Shedbug - Destination Love

Shedbug - Destination Love

Lobster Theremin


12" Vinyl 


Lobster Theremin dig back down unda' to bring another fresh salty Aussie experience to the table with well seasoned young talent Shedbug aka Geordie Elliot-Kerr at the helm for this one.

As co-head of Salt Mines he's been responsible for some of the most exciting new underground electronic bizz coming out of Aus - including Hymns, Rudolph C, Escape Artist and 92 Spacedrum Orchestra.

As Shedbug he makes entrancing house, acid-tinted techno, cosmic electro and heavily stepped UK-influenced jams, with 12" EP's already landing via Of Paradise, Deeptrax, Flux and a cassette album for THRHNDRDSVNTNN.

On Destination Love, Shedbug harnesses the emotive, pad-heavy sound showcased on previous outings whilst mixing in blend of interstellar synths, jagged breaks and crusted-yet-cutting drum work - all mixed down with some serious studio finishing.

The ominously titled '2' opens the EP with three minutes of introspective ambient meditation. Followed closely by house hitter 'For You', a swirling, modulating, brooding wander into secret garden territory. An epic prog-house number that would sit just as well on the more sun-blissed side of the Running Back catalogue.

Journeyman channels grinding saw waves and heaving drones for a stomping step into electro territory. Dry 909's underpinning the curtailed groaning lead lines.

On the flip, title track 'Destination Love' is a hybrid house/electro-pop workout. Vocoded space-pod AI sings a heart-soothing melody of loss whilst the Italo-bassline and 80's Juno lead come soaring out of the wings. An android's composed interpretation of electronic love.

Out of the back of the EP is You Think, a staggered, clattering & seriously wonky exit strategy. Heavy breathing and Perfect Dark percussion collide on this sci-fi retro thriller montage. A proper Hamburg basement weapon.
