This 2nd and new (self-released) EP from Shades is a perfect progression from the first (released on Alpha Pup). There is a fine balance of glitch and swagger, and it oozes innovation. Pounding bass, warm, crunchy drums, and finely tuned synths are the order of the day here. Each track is a well-crafted journey with great dynamic, and showcases both their influences in a new progressive light. The variety in sound and styles is wide in this EP, yet still moves seamlessly from one track to the next.

Shades has received massive support from Gaslamp Killer, Fact, XLR8R, at Low End Theory, Noisia, and their recent tour of Australia and New Zealand was a massive success. Their set at Noisia Invites at ADE was hailed a highlight of the event. Their live show has been as well received as it was widely anticipated. Shades have certainly pioneered a new movement, and ‘Powers of Two’ is testament to this. This is highly sophisticated music for dance floors and listeners alike.
