REVIEW: Portable presents My Sentient Shadow

Following in the footsteps of the lead single and recent mind-body temptress "I Feel Stronger Now," we are now truly proud to present you the latest My Sentient Shadow from Portable. Filled to the brim with all the inventiveness the sonic author has commanded, we look forward to his considerable and consistent work on world-renowned labels such as Perlon, ~ scape,! K7, and his own Süd Electronic and Khoikhoi labels, and we dare to say offering ourselves perhaps the most cohesive, emotional and balanced of his admirable catalog here to date. Using the analogy of a shadow possessing its own consciousness, the issue of light and its distortion versus balance with the inherent and necessary darkness that surrounds it is in clear vision.

Portable leaves nothing behind and confirms the mission that electronic music has always had: to play with the present and move towards the unknown, beyond entertainment. The result is a work as experimental as it is intense and addictive, which takes over oneself like sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that this record is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.

This work by Portable, which starts the season, is a good example of the label's healthy progress, but above all, of its uncompromising potential. In addition, this selection maintains a narrative line that shows that his compositions are rather part of a process in which, thanks to the mastery of his compilers, it is easy to enter. For this reason, the best of My Sentient Shadow is not so much what it contains, but what it promises: once the necessary balance is made, it is known that what has to come from this label in the future will be even better.
