about

From deep down on the road of excess, Shivastep's debut EP echoes with the sound of pop culture finally consuming itself. The rhythms of these six songs propel you into the cathartic swirl of that final dance. Laced with deep, heavy 808s and grimy, euphoric synthesizer stabs, the music hits right to the gut and demands engagement. Thoroughly composed, these songs transform, shift and diverge, tracking a journey that is never short of thrilling whether lost in sweaty abandon or closed eye contemplation.

"Menacing, sinister rhythms by LA producer Sean Nelson aka Shivastep, beats from deep below that linger somewhere between straightforward bass, West Coast-indebted instrumental hip-hop, and some pretty sophisticated footstep borrowings, all thrown together and mercilessly blown up, resulting in one of the most instantly danceable guilty pleasures of 2012. Don’t dare to miss out on this." - No Fear of Pop

Fragments of footwork, grime, trance and dirty hip hop slur in and out of focus until a new form emerges... This is SHIVASTEP. ... more
