House veteran Shiba San is back with his first release of 2020, the La Cabana EP. Both tracks on the EP are some of Shiba’s most tech-inspired house tracks to date, especially the title track which features a highly repetitive synth pattern scored with sharp flares of acidity. “Brace Yourself” draws inspiration from the worlds of bass-house and tech-house, as vocal chops and strong sub-bass intermingle with classic 909-esque sounds.
Though La Cabana is the first release from Shiba San this year, it’s not the first work from his Basement Leak imprint. Just a few weeks back, Millad dropped off a pair of tech house tracks on the imprint. Whether or not this indicates a trend of the label diving deeper into the sounds of techno, we’ll have to wait and see.
