Shallou – Begin

th2016 was the breakout year for Chicago based Shallou and he has gone from strength to strength. His production stems from his love from house music and occasionally borders on the pop side of things. What strikes us is that his greatest influences are in fact two of the UK’s most cherished geniuses ‘Gold Panda’ and ‘James Blake’. Both Panda and Blake sit on a high pedestal with us and it’s interesting to hear another artist take such inspiration from them. ‘Shallou’ has a very nice whimsical style which doesn’t mesh into any huge crescendos of needless noise or a ‘big drop’ – he keeps it mellow mellow. I’m not a huge fan of the cheesy vocals in ‘Begin’ from vocalist ‘Wales’ but you cannot ignore the skill of ‘Shallou’s’ overall aim here. Nioce. We have linked a nice little unofficial video of ‘Begin’ below. Enjoy.
