First Listen: Jay Shepheard – ‘Type1a’

Jay Shepheard will release debut album ‘Home & Garden’ on February 25, via his own Retrofit imprint.

The UK-born, Berlin-residing producer has, over six years of singles, refined his increasingly inimitable sound, owing as much to disco and techno as it does to house. His debut album has been a long time coming, and in 11 tracks sees Shepheard delve deeper than ever before, through seductive grooves and melody.

‘Type1a’ is one of the LP’s more dancefloor-suited moments. It’s buried kicks, skippy garage cymbals, simple melody and vocal sampling make for a late night delicacy, delivered with precision and production finesse. Highly recommended.
