Moiré, an otherwise anonymous electronic music producer from London, is named after the effect when two patterns are overlaid to create a third pattern, a bane of digital photography.

Shelter does something similar to techno, layering together precise arrangements of hi-hats, bass and snares but also disrupting them with other elements, such as the strangely numbed vocals in “Rings” or the cosmic synthesiser swirls in “No Gravity”.

The result is an intelligent and agile debut album.
