Ratchet - Flying Out

SHAMIR

Ratchet

XL Recordings

$40.95
Ecstatic but hardened, urgent but expertly weathered, sparkling with the grit of a desert geode. Shamirs first full-length LP Ratchet is a disco-house-R & B marvel. Its a record about growing up in Vegas, though not the Vegas you think you know. Shamir grew up near a pig farm - the pigs were slaughtered and fed to the casinos. The casinos slop kept the swine fed. This is where he grew up, in the margins of vice and excess. Never has the idiom diamond in the rough applied so literally.

Hes not cocky, jaded, or an ingenue. But neither is he the opposite of those things. Theres an obvious fluidity to Shamir. He transcends boundaries genre, gender, age, geography. He feels solitary because there is literally no one else like him.
