Sunday Mix: Shielding

Ambient

Stockholm resident Shielding makes sublime ambient music that, upon closer inspection, reveals itself to be deafeningly alive with noise and detail.

First coming to our attention back in 2018 with an incredible debut on Chicago label Kimochi, he returned to our speakers once again this year with a follow-up EP on Facta and K-LONE’s Wisdom Teeth imprint. Across six tracks the Collecting Seaweed EP explores a broader range of styles and moods, moving from triumphant dawn chorus drone through to oddball trip-hop and even Bristol-school broken techno.

His Sunday Mix is made up of exactly what he does so well: fizzing, pulsating washes of warm tonal fuzz, with subtle rhythmic loops of clicks, cuts and deliberate imperfections running just below the surface. Sounds that initially seem easy and non-intrusive gently pull on the attention, revealing fathoms deep beneath.
