Joe Ford returns to Shogun Audio after the success of his previous single The Moment with the more experimental vibes of Off Centre. The intro teases with what sounds like a hypey build up to a huge drop, but this is all a cunning ruse; the drop in question is all nuance and groove rather than the usual high energy danger you’d expect from an A-side on a prominent label. It’s nice to see that Shogun are still willing to take some risks with a less than conventional tune!
Knock Down meanwhile ticks all the usual boxes for well produced, rolling dancefloor D&B; squelchy bass, heavy hitting drums and a catchy hook form the mainstay of the tune, with some nice atmospherics on the intro and bridge sections. Fans of Joe Ford will know what to expect here! Check out the clips below and look for this one on digital (November 2nd) or attractive purple vinyl (November 3rd).
