to me it sounds like typical filthy Shake sampla abuse, definitely crunchy AF but many of them are & bangs hard as 💩 can’t pick a favorite because they’re all amazing but I’ll take this 5% solution 💪🏿

This top-shelf record used to be common to see in the bins after it was repressed in 1996...I thought, in my stunted youth, this meant it wasn't good and I passed it up. Years went by and it turned out Shake was close with some of my friends. One of these buddies of mine played Day Of Reckoning on our radio show five or six years back and when I asked him what it was, he gave me this look of "are you f______kidding me?" . I felt pretty lame for showing my ignorance but also for not having bought a few copies when they were going for the usual 5.99!

Day of Reckoning shows the unconventional musical brilliance of Anthony Shakir...I can't even describe it's so original and beautiful and ass-kicking, one of my favorite techno tracks by a mile. It is complex but coherent, metallic and driving but thoughtful and melodic, serious but quirky.

A Desert Island techno record.
