By his own productive standards, White and Giegling regular Edward (AKA Desert Sky man Gilles Aiken) has been pretty quiet of late. Shockingly, Shufflehead is his first EP since 2015. The title track, which stretches out for 11 minutes across the A-side, is an unusual concoction, to say the least. Built around loose, tropical percussion loops, layered field recordings, creepy noises and an off-kilter electronic bassline, it sits somewhere between humid minimal techno and some of Dominick Fenrow's more ambient moments. Flip for the EBM style electronic funk of "Dekta", and the Black Merlin/Berceuse Heroique style tribal wonkiness that is "Etern".
