As is typical of his career so far, the album defies all expectations - solidifying his position as one of Britain's most respected electronic artists. 'Crush' received widespread critical praise including a cover feature with DJ Magazine, 9/10 'Album of the Month' from both Mixmag and Future Music and 9/10 from Loud and Quiet as well as 8/10 from Crack, The Line of Best Fit, Uncut and more. Following the album release Shepherd went on to play a sold out show at Printworks debuting his innovative new live show to rave reviews.
Shepherd now shares two new versions of album highlight Bias', a track which was praised both for its "sense of air, as if you can sense the room it was recorded in" (DJ) as well as "a drop so nasty it could send your pulse out of kilter" (Mixmag).
Bias began to morph and expand during Shepherd's live shows and he presents a recorded version based on those exciting, in the moment improvisations. The Mayfield Depot mix stems from a performance at the end of 2019 as part of the Warehouse Project series. Named for the Manchester venue, the mix is based around a live recording from the night with crowd noise bleeding into Shepherd’s microphone, giving a palpable sense of energy in the room. The extended mix stretches out the album version of Bias, unfolding new layers and giving even greater depth to that satisfying build.
