Various Fuse Presents Shinedoe
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Music Man
- XLR8R Rating: 8.5/10
Unfortunately, skilled female techno DJ/producers are still something of a rarity on the international circuit. Belgian DJ/producer and Intacto label chief Shinedoe offers an exception to the sausage fest, and her first mix CD for Fuse’s franchise delivers a smoothly listenable, if somewhat safe, techno-and-house selection. Oddly, Shinedoe’s flow mostly stays at one level, without much BPM variance; plus, opening with DJ Bone expounding upon the meaning of dance music feels a bit tired in 2007. Still, even amid talents like Ron Trent and Underground Resistance, Shinedoe’s own “Dialogue” offers one of the brighter spots here. Check Dave Ellesmere’s sweeping synth shuffle “Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday” for one of this year’s most exceptional dancefloor finds.
