Czech/Aussie duo Michal Schwa and Nick West, AKA Shades of Gray, recently wowed us with their debut 'Soul Machine' album on Beef Records which showed a deft touch for the entire spectrum of house from deep to bleep and a firm grip of what it takes to get booties shaking on the floor. Not resting on their laurels, a new 'All About the Drums' EP out 16th April on Lost My Dog carries this sound forward into four more essential jackers. Sticking to their own output for the podcast, they provide a whistle-stop tour through the various facets of their sound, including highlights from the album's second remix disc.
