Essentially an alter ego for David Edwards, Minotaur Shock has remained on the fringes of electronic music for over a decade.
But perhaps that's the best place for him. Looking back over Minotaur Shock's slim discography, it's hard to find a pigeon hole to place him under - existing in the slipstream between genres, the Bristol producer's work is subtle, persuasive and difficult to shrug off.

Once again hooking up with Melodic, the material contained therein seemed to be in continual fluctuation, a writhing mass of ideas and new directions. 'Saundersfoot' is a case in point. All jagged edges, glitchy rhythms and soothing tones, it's an ever unfolding mesh of contradictions.
