URBN SHMN - The Zenith
Shelled Tapes is back with another release, this one is URBN SHMN - The Zenith
He describes the tape as it being a "Zenith" because we are living thru a culminating point in time. The intention is for music to help take us to a "Zenith" (highest point reached in the heavens by a celestial body) consciously & spiritually.
Tape comes in at 30 minutes & is a dope bridge of Lo-Fi & Hi-Fi characteristics wrapped around head-noddin' beats!
Beautiful Artwork by Audrey Gatewood (Instagram) & thnx too ZEROSYSTEM from In The Loop Radio for the edits & kiss labels
Cinturon Negro - Mushin No Shin
"Mushin No Shin" means the mind without the mind.
This term is often used in martial arts and is deeply represented in this recording, as most of Cinturon Negro's work, with the least mental interference, because the Chilean producer's approach to music has always been spontaneous and spiritual, not technical or intellectual. What we get here is definitely an session with its own. Almost 60 minutes of Chilean cult sampling from old VHS tapes, experimental beats, bleeps and noises trying to find their way into Cosmos, pushing the hardware to their limits.

Smngoo+Cinturón Negro - Beat Session at Plaza de la Dignidad (Santiago,Chile 2020)
Since October 18, 2019, the People of Chile have awakened from a long lethargy of indifference and submission despite having and suffering for many years the abuse of the authorities (whether in the form of corruption, inequity, social systematic violence, classism , sexism, health, education, public transport and a very long etc). Therefore, from that date until today, the people have been fighting from the street, in many parts of Chile (not only Santiago).
The motivation behind this session that they are going to see is precisely to make visible even more the contingent social situation of Chile to other countries, and both Black Belt and Smngoo being part of the situation that the country is going through wanted to contribute with their sound creations demonstrating that there is different forms of struggle / resistance / presence with which to help make a better place for everyone.
We thank Mario Z, for the support and help in the recording, as well as Smngoo for accepting the proposal to join to realize this idea.
Recorded in Santiago, Chile on February 14, 2020
