Where many labels are content to set up camp in a certain aesthetic and stay there, Matt Densham’s Greta Cottage Workshop (supposedly a real place) is suprisingly mobile. With quality as his only concern, he’s pushed the label to release whatever feels right, meaning sweet tech-house by Rennie Foster precedes beatdown house from Soul Keita & Nicolas Jaar, which was followed by guitar shaped atmospherics by Michael J Collins, and so on. For LWE’s latest Download of the Week, Greta favorite Shane Berry has reshaped an Aural Imbalance track from the label’s second release, turning “Think Tank” into “Thought Tanked.” Berry’s haunting take on dub sonorities bounces cowbell clanks against flowing chords and playful bass lines, leaving vocal crumbs along the path to guide listeners through its gorgeous atmosphere. We’re exceptionally proud to be the exclusive source for this exceptional tune, and for it we offer our thanks to Greta Cottage Workshop, Shane Berry and Aural Imbalance.
