In this case, it leads us to some caves at the borders of Belgium and The Netherlands. These caves have been the scenery for illegal dance parties for decades and it looks like they still are. I've been to some of those parties, or raves, in the past and it was magical, an experience I will never forget. Dutch DJ SHLTR draws his inspiration from these strange nights and turns it into highly atmospheric dance music.
There's three tracks on this e.p., each of them driving on continuous analog beats and minimal percussion. Over these basic elements an array of drones and soundscapes float quite freely, creating a dreamlike sound that has the power to get a lot of people on their feet. The tracks really sound like little journeys through space and remind me of acts like Gas (Wolfgang Voigt).
Somehow, it seems like this music was created especially to play at those illegal cave parties. The wideness of the sound on this e.p. is perfect for the mystical acoustics of these underground dwellings and I'm sure they will add a touch of magic to those nights. Moreover, this music is a decent variation of the stuff I usually listen to, so I'm going to listen to it again and maybe dance a little bit in my man-cave...
