Shinji – Second Wind / Grand Mash

13. March 2018

The sandy beaches of New South Wales, Australia, give way to dusty
beats of Aussie producer Shinji in this funky seven inch single on Cold
Busted. Taken from his forthcoming album In Colour (coming in April
2018), this single features two retro-tastic tracks that will send the
beatheads swinging across the floor. “Second Wind” opens up with heavy
Rhodes piano chords accompanied by a crucial rhythm and streetwise
horns. Evoking the soundtrack to a TV detective series from the ‘70s, the
cut unloads serious action in a 45-slinger’s DJ set. Flip the record for
“Grand Mash,” which begins in the hip hop zone before soundtracking
a movie scene of the pimp-mobile once again in pursuit. Groovy horns,
tough beats, and a way-cool-for-school spoken interlude move this one
to the top of the crate-digging charts. Shinji strongly delivers the goods,
queuing things up nicely for his sure-to-be essential long-player.
