Premiere: Hear a Track from Shanti Celeste’s Stunning New EP
‘Make Time / Thoughts’ will drop on Idle Hands on May 26.
This Friday, Bristol imprint and record shop Idle Hands will release a new EP from one of the label’s core members, the quickly rising house producer Shanti Celeste.
Following on from a slew of impressive releases on labels like Secretsundaze, Peach Discs, and Future Times, this latest two-tracker sees Celeste return to her Bristol roots and Idle Hands, her hometown vinyl outlet and the platform for her 2014 standout record, Days Like This.
Make Time / Thoughts both showcases the evolution of Celeste’s production aesthetic, while also paying homage to her hometown’s signature sound. While “Make Time” sounds very familiar, incorporating the rough yet soothing deep house with which Celeste has become known, “Thoughts” sounds quite new; its hypnotizing synths and downtempo atmospherics are at once groovy, elegant, and one-of-a-kind.
