V/A - Shir Khan: Exploited (Exploited/GH-14)


Germany’s Jan Simon Speilberger aka Shir Khan doesn’t care much for convention or genre guidelines. He originally showed us his taste for mixing things up on 2007’s excellent Maximize compilation and continues in the same vein with this wonderful creation. Focussing on material culled from his own Exploited imprint and various other odds and ends, Shir Khan hits with all manner of spiky beats, jarring synths and smart vocals. High points include Lorenz Rhode’s spiralling Like A Player, Solo’s exuberant Afreaka and the melodious SIS Remix of Minimow’s Bollyhouse. This is another excellent convention destroying set from Mr. Speilberger.
