Amoeba Review

Brent James, San Francisco 09/22/2015

The perfect album for a summer night, or a nice relaxing unwind session in bed. Traces of Moroder prove that Shamir has done his homework and has no plans of slowing down. Excellent!

We’ve been anxiously awaiting Shamir’s debut since hearing the Northtown EP last year, and Ratchet does not disappoint. The electronic/house artist channels a young Sylvester or Grace Jones with his androgynous vocals on spacious nu-disco tracks like “Vegas” while he slots nicely along underground stars like Azealia Banks, FKA Twigs and Big Freedia on bouncing future-pop tracks like “On the Regular.” Like many of those artists, there’s more than meets the eye here—check out tracks like noir ballad “Darker” for the full breadth of Shamir’s vocals and scope.
