So Shoreman started out by randomly sending me the lead track of this EP on its own via the KF music submission page. I think. I can’t remember, honestly. Anyway, the first track sent, and what remained as the lead track for the EP, is Deep Waters, and it is devastatingly catchy. I liked it when I first heard it, and then found myself singing it for weeks afterwards. I cant remember what day it is, so if I remember a tune I only just heard? Thats something. So I signed it for the Vinyl Is Better series, a thing I do with new artists to give me time to get to know them, check they fit with the Kniteforce ethos, and also to see if they have more up their sleeve. I knew Deep Waters was a good track, but I have always thought it is relatively easy to make one good hardcore track. It is much harder to make an EP of good tracks.
But I was quickly proven correct in signing Shoreman because “Deep Waters” was soon followed by “Shake It Up”, and wow, thats a great tune. Proper hardcore in every sense of the word. It would have blown the dancefloor away in 1994, and will do so now. “Still Lonely” came in, and at that point I was like “Ok, this needs to be a vinyl release”…and then “Burn The Manic” arrived and, while it is not as catchy as Deep Waters, it is easily my favourite of the four as it is unique and has this wicked rap bit halfway through that just transcends the rest of the track. I absolutely love it.
I think anyone who hears this EP will agree that this marks the arrival of a true talent. All four tracks are absolutely slamming. In some ways, I liken Shoreman to Alex Jungle, not because they sound similar to each other, but because like AJ, Shoreman has a very distinct style, one that is definetly old skool, yet amazingly fresh and inventive.
I expect big things from Shoreman,..and you should too. I already have one of his latest tunes in my inbox, and this EP is no fluke. I wanted this EP to arrive before The Triple Threat album, and actually delayed that huge release for this EP, because Shoreman HAD to be introduced so you could appreciate his contribution…
