Blue Shadow welcomes rising star producer Omri Smadar to the family, with his 5 track stunning debut EP "En Safek".
Smadar dives deep into his own upbringing, delivering a unique psychedelic dancefloor interpretations to his childhood heroes, Tel Aviv's Indie Rock staples Fortis & Tractor's Revenge.
"En Safek She" (There's No Doubt That) alludes to the apocalyptic "Sunrise Falling" by local legend Fortis. Back in 1988, the Israeli punk pioneer wrote about the Hiroshima bombing, describing a happy world disrupted by a mushroom-shaped cloud. Omri's production stays crucial with the original sense of urgency, repeating the Hebrew chorus lyrics which act as a deadly double entendre.
"Dmaot" (Tears) is based on "Game Of Tears", by Tractor's Revenge. Omri's take pays tribute to the haunting signature song of the band from 1990, keeping the lyrics paced with his own psychedelic dark disco vision.
Like the Fortis classic, Omri remarkably succeeding to maintain the surreal vibe of the original song, while elegantly adapting it to dancefloor territory.
Each En safek & Dmaot won a bonafide banger treatment with two stripped down dub versions, shaping them to suit any club voyage, while the latter also received a trippy atmosphere worthy remix by the talented Mexican born and Calypso label-boss Inigo Vontier.
