Shadow Dancer

We present a very special mixtape to mark the launch of Attack.

When it came to choosing someone to create a very special mixtape to help launch Attack, we wanted someone with an encylopaedic knowledge of music. Shadow Dancer were the top of our shortlist. From previous meetings with Paul and Al Farrier we knew they had an obsessive appetite for music and the DJ skills to back up their selection. The Manchester-based brothers didn’t need asking twice, jumping at the opportunity to put together a selection of the music which has inspired them over the years.

When the resulting mix landed in our dropbox we were astonished. The Boys Noize Records duo have produced a mix which lurches from Detroit techno to movie soundtracks, electronic prog rock to synthpop and everywhere in between. It may not quite be a comprehensive guide to the history of electronic music in a single mix, but it’s pretty damn close. What better way to celebrate the launch of Attack?

So, let’s cut to the chase. Turn up your speakers and make yourself comfortable as Shadow Dancer take you on a three hour journey through some of the finest electronic music ever made.
