Creating music in a hyper-connected world that ignores beauty in its subtlety is an arduous task. But for Shadow Movement (aka Rafael Bartel) it's rather therapeutic while synths, sensations, and melodies give the power to transmute and stand out. Rafael Bartel works hard when delivering new original studio productions. The reason why this release is much expected by his followers. Shadow Movement is one of the first artists discovered and released by DOC Records. While reaching international charts his music has received support from renowned artists such as Maceo Plex, Stephan Bodzin, and Solomun. German Mixmag quoted: "a very successful album that leaves you wanting more". Since then the name Shadow Movement has become synonymous with acclaimed singles and EPs. Performances in venues such as Hive Club (Zurich), Le Sucre (Lyon), Amsterdam Dance Event (Amsterdam), Tomorrowland Brasil, Warung Beach Club, Capslock, and Boiler Room helped to transform the studio wizard into a respected name globally. Shadow Movement has a unique approach toward music with a firm purpose: to connect to people through music. Astral is Shadow Movement at his best. Beautiful melodic techno with mystic sounds. It is a classy cut with real emotion. Synths and beats construction to perfection. This depth-charged single masterpiece surely will get into your heartbeat. Powerful kicks and an authentic imprint, may it be for the clubs or festivals.
