While always a great concept in theory, sometimes collaboration doesn’t work out in practice. It’s a challenge faced by electronic artists Shigeto and Devonwho in 2010, also the name of their previously unreleased faux-EP, when they spent time collaborating on a joint 12″ for All City Dublin. Because of “artistic investments” the tracks were never released, and the two producers sat on them–until now. 2010 is a dreamy otherworld made up of five surreal, nearly subaqueous, beatscapes that carefully toe the line between wayward free jazz and sprawling, seductive trip-hop. Listen to the EP’s second, utterly hype-worthy, track, “Storyboards.”
