WALKINGSHOE

Bio
With tracks ranging from soulful odes to futuristic soundscapes, Walkingshoe's aim is always to push the boundaries of what we classify as "beats". Keeping an organic sonic foundation, he strives to deliver detailed craftsmanship, complex layered melodies and head-nodding backdrops. Walkingshoe has also been playing the guitar for 15 years and spends time (when not making beats) writing folk music and playing at local hangouts in his hometown Chicago, Illinois.

About
TFWKY is Walkingshoe's 2nd Cosmonostro release, and is a highly personal project that explores the nature of existence along with five collaborating MCs. Similar to Walkingshoe's Blastphemy EP, TFWKY is a single, cohesive flowing piece that is best listened to straight through as an album. The productions are once again carefully constructed with a great attention to detail, and can be described as a subtle joining of the organic and the electronic. TFWKY is extremely dense and yet jam packed with tiny details that will leave you listening over and over. Enjoy.

About
Chicago based producer Walkingshoe delivers his Cosmonostro debut with the ‘Blastphemy’ EP – 7 tracks of sound experimentation and innovation: these are RAW beats, oozing with flavour, for those that like to take a less conventional musical trip.

Bandcamp SoundCloud Youtube



We open with the laidback grooves of ‘Facebearer’ – a slice of pulsing disco from the distant future, with immaculate, glittering vibraphone chops over rolling low end & gorgeous 360 degree percussion. Title track ‘Blastphemy’ ups the ante with a gloriously disorienting mixture of slow and fast rhythms, before dropping back into a warped & stretched disco groove that’ll make you melt. Things get more warped still in ‘The Falls’ & ‘General’, where lo-fi meets sci-fi over pushed grooves that’ll have your neck snapping. ‘Tennassee’ takes us on a chilling detour, with what sounds like the soundtrack for an 8-bit slasher movie, whilst ‘Occasions’ takes another complete u-turn – eastern vibes meet Wyclef Jean before dropping into lush piano chords over throbbing beats & heavily compressed plucked strings chopped to perfection. Rounding off the EP is ‘The Blaster’, sounding like a galactic jazz group playing Numbers On The Boards, complete with beautiful ethereal vocal chops & more of that pulsing low-end goodness.

Press
"For as hyper-cryptic and future-centric as a lot of adventurous productions wants to be, 'Occasions' levels in a naturalist persona. The gentle breeze of moving synths, piano-clad echoes, and patient beats paint a forest of sweet celebration here, trekking between ambient and subtle R&B.
It's a masterful presentation by the Chicago vet, whose been at this for more than a decade." -The 405
"Throughout 'Blastphemy', Walkingshoe exhibits a strong ear for melody, a fine knack for chopping and manipulating samples, and a great understanding of how tension and release make for engaging music." -The New Beatmaker
"This is so good" -Rappamelo
