We are surprised that producers don't turn to the world of shoegaze more for inspiration--and even more surprised that we haven't featured more remixes from The Digital Connection
. Ricky Shine has been on the scene in Colorado for the past few years, sharing the stage with notable acts like EOTO
, and quietly amassing a rather impressive armada of soulful glitch-hop and future bass compositions. Oddly enough, no one has really tackled French pop act M83
quite like Shine. With lush melodies crashing and reflecting off one another, soaring, reverb-soaked guitar licks, and pulsing electronics, "You, Appearing," is remade anew with the brilliantly bold flash that is The Digital Connection. We are still scratching our heads about missing some great stuff in the past, but we can assure you' we're going to be on top of Ricky Shine to see what's coming next.
