R&S Preps Debut 12" from Shanghai Den; Hear a Track Now
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The ever-expanding R&S label will release the debut 12" from Shanghai Den early next month. Though a producer who seeks to remain behind a bit of anonymity, some may recognize Shanghai Den as a collaborator of FaltyDL, having been featured on the b-side cut of the New York producer's "Danger" b/w "King Brute" 12", released earlier this year via Ninja Tune. Now, Shanghai Den is set to strike out on his own with the "The Sun" b/w "Vale W. Group," a single containing music which the artist himself describes as representing "the fear inside of all of us mixed with a constant stream of chemical self-medication."
To give us a better idea of what exactly that means, R&S has provided a full stream of a-side cut "The Sun," which can be streamed in full below before Shanghai Den's debut solo outing drops on July 1.
