Following his much-vaunted Motional Response full-length, Toronto's Basic Soul Unit turns in his second EP for the label, a stomping late night affair propelled by staccato snares and claps, and a kick that seems inspired by the title - while his control of the atmosphere shows exactly why he's in such high demand. Newcomer Blue Soul displays his chops with a minimized techno take that splits the original synth bass into two concurrent layers while inserting expansive stabs that interpenetrate the sound effects of the original, while Sepehr's Shameless remix repurposes Short's sonic layers atop infectious sub bass for what seems to be the most house-influenced take of the three. The Sharp Edge of Possibility shows another side to Short's production ethic, applying his knack for unique audio construction to a heady blend of house and shoe-gaze with potentially euphoric results, while Zone of Middle Dimensions is a journey deep into paranoid limbo facilitated by claustrophobic sound schemes that trace a perfect arc for late night techno excursions. Finally, Eidolons in Aquariums indulges an abstract conclusion of Short's abundant experimentation, floating textures transporting the dub-wise low end far from the realm of the expected. A clear statement of exceptional ability in the studio, Low Down Dirty Shame is a portrait of an emerging talent on the edge of breaking through...
