Whether you’re in the celebrating sort of mood or looking to dance away your blues, I think we can all agree that today calls for an upbeat jam. Thankfully, I have just what you need. I recently discovered Oakland’s Shock thanks to a helpful heads up from my friend Kevin Meenan (epicsauce). Shock is a Bay Area electronic crew featuring Oakland’s Sorcerer alongside members of Rubies/Call and Response and Windsurf. Their new track “Heaven” is an atmospheric, bubbling, city-slick groove with an infectious rhythm. I’ve been playing it on repeat this morning.
You can buy this on 12″ vinyl from Voltaire Records. Bay Area friends can catch them this Friday at Push The Feeling (November 9th) at Underground SF when they play with High Places and YR SKULL. It’s safe to say this’ll be one awesome, danceable party.
