Get Up To The Electro-Funk Sound Of "Spectrum" by Shook


Dutch producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and performer Jasper Wijnands AKA Shook is set to release second album 'Spectrum'. This album explores his multi-facetted synthesizer sound, combining modern day production technology with musical elements and compositions stemming from the '70s and '80s.

First single 'Violet Hues' is riddled with a boatload of both modern and classic synth-sounds and accompanied by smooth vocals, characterized by the vintage Shook-sound, but with a more developed musical pallet. Ransom Note coined it "Think Blonde Redhead mixed by Johnny Jewel...One of the best tracks of the year".

On latest single 'New Horizons', Harder Blogger Faster describes Shook "on imperious form as he weaves delicate live instrumentation against fretting guitars and doughty basslines for a seriously laid-back slice of warm disco".

His ability to blend his skills as a pure instrumentalist, as well as a university schooled producer, into a modern, popular sound, are the main ingredients for his current success. Playing classical compositions from the likes of Khachaturian and Bach in school, and practicing work from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Chick Corea in his free time, he gradually developed his own unique skillset, combining elements of classical, jazz, latin, soul, and funk. The characteristic sound partially originates from his use of historically renowned analog synthesizers, with every part recorded live in his home studio in the Netherlands.
