Despite having plenty of things to keep himself busy (managing the Spirit Level record label, hosting a national radio show etc.), Tim Shiel has still managed to keep his own musical output ticking along, in recent years turning his focus to gaming soundtracks.
Breaking the drought of non-gaming related music late last year, Shiel has since dropped a handful of one-off songs featuring guest vocalists including Spirit Level artist Braille Face, Lucy Roleff, and Genesis Owusu. The latter on the irrepressible slice of pure joy that is, ‘Coliseum’.
From the get go ‘Coliseum’ is all summery rhythms and cascading vocal flows, but once the beat enters you can’t help but succumb to its bouncy, feel good vibes. Shiel has always had a knack for making playful, idiosyncratic electronica, but ‘Coliseum’ is straight up fire, making peace with its idiosyncrasies to earn its place on any discerning party playlist.
