After its initial release 13 years ago, 12k is very happy to welcome Dan Abrams’ (Shuttle358) engaging Stream album to the catalog as a download-only re-release.

“‘Stream’ is darker and more sparse than Abrams other work, and lacks the deep melodic hit of works such as ‘Frame’ and followup ‘Understanding Wildlife’. However, what we lack in melodic sweetness, we gain in bottom end and this album has a bass growl to it unseen in the rest of his catalogue.” – Boomkat

Obviously, Abrams is trying a new path here that is a slightly unlike the material from his Shuttle358 alias. Stream is, inevitably, a more loop based project with less change and movement in the tracks but still remains an engaging listen over its length. – Stylus

With his Mille Plateaux debut Stream, Abrams makes further developments uncovering dance music’s archetype; be it techno, trance, drum ‘n’ bass or downtempo – and shows them in their most sublime state.

After 10 years, this fall we will see the release of the new album from Shuttle358. Fans…
