I LIKE THAT | THE SHIP SHAPE – ‘LORIKEET’
The Ship Shape is the moniker of Sydney based producer Adam Jones, who has been kicking around on Soundcloud for a couple of years now. ‘Lorikeet’ is Jones’ latest release, which boasts a highly addictive vibe, with entrancing bass lines that take the track in a number of truly unique directions. The subtle chops and changes are just as crucial as the pulsating rhythms in this one, with Jones proving that you don’t have to be completely over the top to grab someone’s attention, but you also don’t have to slink into the overcrowded scene of downtempo, neo-soul, electronica.
“I really see it as a little physical movement experiment – trying to make my body move involuntarily in different ways”, Jones said on ‘Lorikeet’ – and damn, does it work. It’s definitely one of those numbers that makes your neck twitch and your head jerk, without really understanding why. Totally outside my comfort zone listening to this one and really, really digging it. The Ship Shape’s Facebook page is looking a little lonely though, so follow him HERE and bug him to post more music. Check out ‘Lorikeet’ below.
