Skull Disco's co-founder Shackleton is back with another mesmerizing track, called "Death is Not Final". Uniting minimal, dubstep and breaks, Shackleton's productions don't exactly fit into a particular category.
This track takes off where "Blood on My Hands" left us: the hypnotising percussion interweaves in such a complex fashion with the steadily present kickdrums that you need to turn the volume up all the way to fully comprehend the complexity of this track. And even then, you probably won't discover all its secrets. "Death is Not Final" is probably Shackleton's most grim, and yet most amazing production ever.
T++, Torsten Pröfrock's alter ego, is on remixing duty. He has created a much more dubbed version by omitting most of the percussion, which is by no means a bad thing. In fact, this version is equally good, if not better than the original.
The only thing I, and I'm really weighing my words here, loathe about this production is the artwork. It's drawn by someone (or something) called "Zeke". And all along I thought it was drawn by some 14-year-old goth chick who ventilates her misunderstood thoughts by sketching shite like this. Boy, was I wrong...
