After a brief hiatus, Files Rec is back on the release train with a stunning EP from Swiss artist Shayu. The young Zurich-based producer presents ‘Liàng’, a collection of four intimately intertwined works reflecting on a profoundly inspiring work trip to China in 2011. Thanks to her classical piano background, Shayu crafts beautiful melodies loaded with emotion and supported by homemade modular synthesizer samples, bold drum patterns and field recordings.
Our pick off the EP is ‘Mxone’. A track that combines powerful and intricate drum patterns with fantastically eerie melodies, and leaves the listener wanting for more.
Shayu ‘Liàng’ will be released digitally on December 7th.
