Shift K3Y’s ‘Entirety’ is deep-seated in 90s dance influence
Known for his lo-fi, UK garage brand of four-on-floor club fare, London-born Shift K3Y, lesser-known by Lewis Jankel, has again flexed his sonic dexterity with, “Entirety,” released through Sony Music. Part of what makes Jankel such a prolific producer is, indeed, his ability to hit shift, and switch up his style seemingly at will. Earlier in May, he delivered his Bite EP: a dark, bass-brimming, subtly grime-tinged garage house concoction perfectly tailored for its Night Bass housing.
Just a few months later, “Entirety” reintroduces the vibrant, 90s dance floor delivery, characteristic of his earlier tracks, like “Touch.” Above its stuttering percussion and playful bass arrangement, Shift K3Y’s newest offering also features soul-suffused, desirous vocals from fellow Brit, A*M*E, who has worked modestly within the electronic circuit, most notably alongside Duke Dumont and Camelphat.
