The Dance Paradox, Paradox Dubs ‎ (2x12", Album, Ltd, Gre + 10", Ltd). 80dsr/rds-lp1 ltd, present black. I love this album and find most of Redshape's tracks enjoyable to listen to at home and in the club and find it hard to believe lovers of Detroit techno and well crafted electronic music not feeling this album. The first track that brought Redshape to my attention was the excellent 2084 12" which blew me away, I admit not everything he has produced has impressed me but he is definately one of the most talented techno producers out there at the moment. No this album is not groundbreaking (does a great album have to be?) but it does have original flourishes in there.

Redshape - The Dance Paradox Whether you know the identity of Redshape or not, his debut album will certainly reinforce his reputation and also surprise. The Dance Paradox delivers eight exceptional cuts, but it also uncovers a new face beneath the mask, carefully laying the foundation for plenty of future mystery and invention. The opening tracks rely more heavily on Redshape's now familiar creepy H. P. Lovecraft and '70s sci-fi ambience and mid-tempo pace. The Dance Paradox is rich with cinematic atmosphere, invention and aural sleight-of-hand. At once familiar it is also disorientatingly new and it sets itself apart by its remarkable sound design with plenty of fuel left over for the dance floor.

Opener 'Seduce Me' introduces a common theme throughout the record. As complex and mysterious as it's creator, 'The Dance Paradox' is a profound work of skill and vision that will be referenced through 2009 and beyond. Great work, whoever you ar. .Release Date 2009-10-26.

Redshape will release his debut album, The Dance Paradox, via Delsin in October.

Talk about Redshape - The Dance Paradox / Paradox Dubs


THOMAS
I love this album and find most of Redshape's tracks enjoyable to listen to at home and in the club and find it hard to believe lovers of Detroit techno and well crafted electronic music not feeling this album. The first track that brought Redshape to my attention was the excellent 2084 12" which blew me away, I admit not everything he has produced has impressed me but he is definately one of the most talented techno producers out there at the moment. No this album is not groundbreaking (does a great album have to be?) but it does have original flourishes in there. I find this album a great mix of the Detroit and Berlin techno sound and love the heavy analogue feel of it, also the mastering is amazing. I bought a hell of a lot of techno/dubstep records/albums on vinyl in 2009 and this is one of a few that I go back to again and again.
Risinal
Every single positive review of this album must be from people that are production fanatics that love deep techno when all it consists of is a funky rhythm and some "spacy pads".There's not a single track on here with anything resembling a vaguely memorable melody or "hook". Globe comes close with an infectious shuffled rhythm, there's also a mildly effective synth riff in the last third of "Seduce Me", but this is otherwise pad-chord and stab-infested, stripped-down minimal "deep techno". It will work in a club, but it ruthlessly sucks anywhere else. Or maybe it's supposed to make you fall alseep? Or maybe it's supposed to "get your production wang on".I await the endless "not helpful" replies, but despite liking a lot of Delsin material, this does nothing for me and I am honestly stupefied by the ratings and reviews. Where's the next Vince Watson album? Or Quince? Vince and Bram are both more than capable of great production, great rhythms, AND memorable arps, leads, 303s whatever. There is NONE of that on The Dance Paradox except for big kicks and basses. If that's all you need, buy now!
Tar
Ghosts isn't up to standard, for sure. Silence has amazing production values, better than pretty much any album I know of, any genre of music. But it is kind of boring for the most part. In regards to full length albums, the last to be really good was probably Cinemascope, followed by Momentum; but some of the recent individually released tracks have been a lot better than the albums.
lubov
Monolake's latest albums were awful, honestly.
Mallador
I think the point is that Monolake has some very unique, interesting rhythms to make up for lack of melody. (Atlas comes to mind) Minimalism can work very well, but only if the artist really knows what they're doing. Redshape isn't bad, but really nothing extraordinary either.
great ant
People have decided that to do techno you need nothing but a repetitive drum beat. It's become everything it's detractors used to always say about it, only then that wasn't actually true. Techno can and should be melodic. I think though, to be fair, some redshape tracks are actually pretty good, and do have melodies and are not just four on the floor drum patterns. He's not what he's been made out to be, but he isn't terrible either.
Weernis
I hit the "helpful" button because I hate circle-jerks. Feel free to express your opinion even if a negative one.
Freaky Hook
"It will work in a club, but it ruthlessly sucks anywhere else" ?
Eigonn
you sound like a frustrated producer.
Keth
I have given Monolake some reviews. Not all of them glowing. Please read more and write less.
Ffel
I too have always been a bit baffled by the countless glowing reviews for Redshape's Dance Paradox, many going so far as to call it the best album of 2009. It's interesting to a degree, but I could never get into it, no matter how hard I tried. Don't get me wrong, I love most of his productions and own many of them on vinyl, yet something just sounds hollow to me about this album. Of course I wouldn't even think to part with my copy (I've got number 2/295 at that!) and I certainly hope that some day I may realize what I've been missing, though somehow I don't think that day will come. I like a few of the tracks, but it's just missing something. And it's not like I only love his banging productions like 2084/ULTRA, or that type of music in general as I do listen to quite a lot of dubbier and deeper stuff. I guess I'm just wondering what everyone sees in this? Sure, it's experimental and funky in an old school way, but that alone doesn't equate to excellence.
you secret
Your review seems confrontational why do you come off so negative? calipheronawait the endless "not helpful" replies No wonder why you get a lot of negative results from your reviews.
Kazigrel
"The plural is incorrect." More than one is plural. You have written more than one Monolake review. Therefore, you have given Monolake glowing reviews. Please write less and read more.
Landamath
Thank you. Finally, someone else that agrees with me. I'm frankly sick and tired of these glowing reviews. You hit the nail on the head man. This is really uninspired, boring ass techno. There is no other way to put it. I can't even begin to describe how much I dislike redshape, even more so because of the crazy following he seems to have built up. I pretty much never go out of my way to criticize a producer like this, but man, there is just way too much love for this guy...he is terrible awful!
Najinn
You sound like an aging rocker writing for Spin twenty years ago. Even "Vince and Bram" (who are great) could be lazily simplified to a "funky rhythm and some 'spacy pads'." And the observation that "this works in a club, but not at home" is utter nonsense (another journalist cliche used ad nauseam). I could listen to the things I truly love all day, any day. I guess I'm one of the imbeciles who like dynamic, spacious, brooding, and building techno. And as for hooks, I have had "Bound (Part 1 & 2)" in my head for weeks. You do realize that you've given Monolake glowing reviews, do you not? What hooks captivated you from Mr. Henke? And he's a favorite of mine as well.
