I bought a couple of full release copies of this which had a manufacturing fault. There was a jump/ stuck groove in the last part of 'Sub Routine'. Worth checking your copy beforehand if you are looking to sell it or if you are buying a copy. I have had quite a few Shadow releases over the years with various defects (warping on their 10''s was the most common).

Definitely one of the overlooked shadow EPs (as evidenced by the rating and price of copies being sold on here).

"Trouble in China" has a simple but effective melody, combined with SERIOUSLY chopped/layered beats that give modern "drumfunk" more than a run for its money. The melody might have a bit of 94/95 quasi-jazz vibe which I think turns off some fans of early stuff, but the vocal line ("why don't you reach for me... why don't you reach for my soul") is golden.
