SHAZZE – Mystical [ICONYC Noir]

8 min read

Rounding out the month of March, John Johnson's ICONYC welcomes SHAZZE to the label for his debut EP. Although under ten releases into his discography, SHAZZE has become a recognized artist in the world of progressive music. A DJ first, SHAZZE has called London home for the better part of his life, where he regularly delighted crowds at iconic venues such as Ministry Of Sound and The EGG, performing alongside top international talents like Hernan Cattaneo, Guy J, Henry Saiz, Quivver and more. With a degree from the London Sound Academy, SHAZZE has taken his production skills to the forefront of late, with well received projects landing c/o long standing imprints Beatfreak Recordings and Soundteller Records. Now as 2022 reaches it's second quarter, SHAZZE adds ICONYC Noir to his resume with 'Mystical', alongside a remix from Ninesh Babu.

Beginning with 'Sounds of Heaven' SHAZZE is operating at his creative peak with a production that finds that rare compositional balance between musicality and groove. Sitting at the root of the track is a nicely contoured, key changing bassline which offers the perfect foundation for a myriad of colourful melodic elements to work their magic. Delicate yet powerful, this glowing canopy of sound eventually leads you to a well timed break, one where SHAZZE tastefully melts the musicality down into a section of broken beats. In keeping the rhythm locked, a flurry of drums rises against the cascading themes, eventually uniting in a classy crescendo and suitably epic finale. Equally impressive is the companion and title selection 'Mystical' which lands with a tougher, pacier vibe that's nicely dialled for peak time play. SHAZZE's bright and crunchy sonics resonate with great power, pushing emotion across the first act, while a muscular, machine-gun style groove brings that message to the dance floor. The break is perhaps the high point and certainly goes down as the most euphoric moment on the EP, with a vortex of arps and effects spearheading a thunderous drop and epic conclusion.

Rounding out the release is Ninesh Babu who also makes his label debut and provides the lone interpretation of 'Mystical'. Currently based in Dubai, the Indian artist has been a fixture of the electronic underground for over a decade. Finding a place in the trancier leanings of progressive music, Ninesh has a discography that includes releases on John OO Fleming's JOOF Recordings, Neuroscience Deep and UV. Here he brings his unique vision to 'Mystical', which complements the original really well. A distinct cross-cultural vibe resonates across the composition through transcendent vocal phrasing, soulful instrumentation and a radically revamped groove which is sure to move even the most discerning dance floors. Stellar stuff from Ninesh which caps off an excellent ICONYC Noir debut for SHAZZE, an artist who looks set to break out in the not too distant future. Highly recommended.
