If you haven’t had the pleasure of listening to the instrumental work of shak., here’s the perfect opportunity to catch up. The Netherlands-based producer’s solo work is masterfully melancholic and hauntingly beautiful. It’s on par with some of the best tracks from Shlohmo‘s 2011 album, Bad Vibes, which is high praise coming from a long-time Shlohmo fan.
After deleting his SoundCloud account last year, shak. reemerged with Lost Canvas — a duo comprised of himself and a close friend. The duo’s new song, “Just Us”, features the same lush, guitar-centric production from shak. that I’ve grown to love, with the addition of softly crooned, heart-wrenching vocals. It’s an organic combination that makes absolute sense, and it serves as a perfect evolution of shak.’s music.
