John Shima is a Sheffield based producer who has appeared on a variety of underground labels since 2010. More recently he has gained attention from his work with Arne Weinberg as Fatal Tangent and a great EP on B12's Firescope this year where he served up some early 90s style IDM in convincing fashion. On his new Contact EP, the title track's emotive hi-tech soul calls to mind the early '90s output of Richie Hawtin & John Acquaviva's seminal Plus 8 imprint, while bouncy B side cut "Motion" is equally indebted to Detroit's second wave aesthetic with its celestial synths and funky rhythms channeling some Jupiter style jazz in the process. Released on Roman imprint Instruction, which has previously presented works by Berlin's Yoshi, Chicago's Hakim Murphy and NYC's DJ Spider.
