Big system party banger, standard! After their incredible 'Way Of The Warrior' album, possibly the best compilation of 2011 according to DJ Mag, the Shogun commanders stand up tall once again to kick off 2012 with what will be one of the definitive club tracks of the year. Bristol's Interface is no stranger to the limelight and with his debut on Shogun Audio that limelight's about to turn on him once again. Big, bashy and a little bit trashy….get ready!
o An epic intro is always a very good sign that a tune's about to deliver and here 'Desperate Measures' does just that, big time. Orchestral stabs in the dark, drifting vocals and schizoid pads all combine to create the tense build up into one of the rowdiest Shogun drops for a while. Bringing that 'Bodyrock' swing-beat bang up to date for 2012 this one will have 'em hitting the ceiling with the elastic b-line as it ploughs its way through the dance floor taking no prisoners. A worthy addition to the Shogun discography.
o Moving on and Interface treats us to another killer intro full of kettle drum hits and smooth orchestration as the vocal flow of Jay Wilcox seeps into the mix on 'Falling Angels'. In kicks the frenetic break with riding hats and his lyrics that pave the way to the seething bassline that lurks underneath this heavy, living, breathing slice of industrial D&B, designed for bringing the levels down a notch or two when needed. Interface musicality shining through for the Shogun followers.
