Following hot on the heels of Spooky's impressive 'Code 9' release last month, DJ Shiftee's stateside imprint Hot Mum USA are back with a free 8-track offering from Sheffield-based exploratory producer Shackles. 'Celestial Showcase' offers up an insight into the mind of the steel city's latest prospective star, with warped beats and ambient, cosmic bass lines setting the pace throughout - think of it as something like trap-infused serenity. A thoroughly enjoyable listen all in all and more good work from Shiftee's label. Props all round.
