“Custard” is the latest work of the British producer Inwards. An interesting work that we decided to host on our webzine. “Custard” is a light drum & bass track featuring a classy groove.
Across two albums and several EPs to date, Worcestershire-based artist Inwards – AKA Kristian Shelley – has captivated fans and tastemakers with his unshakable melodies and playfully edgy yet deep and emotive productions that draw on found sounds, modular synths, and myriad electronic and acoustic instruments. Along the way, the prolific creator has amassed an archive of unreleased recordings, and it’s from this vault that the new album is drawn, unearthing nine captivating pieces of music which had been “left behind” but whose time has come to see the sunlight.
His distinctive style has earned Inwards numerous champions. MOJO magazine gave his 2020 second album ‘Bright Serpent’ a glowing 4* review to go alongside press takes from Resident Advisor, The Independent, Electronic Sound, Clash, DUMMY, The 405 and more. BBC 6 Music (incl Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Tom Ravenscroft, Don Letts, Stuart Maconie), Radio X (John Kennedy), and BBC Introducing (Radio 1 & regional), have given him heavy airtime in the UK, with Selector Radio, Soho Radio, Foundation FM, KCRW and NPR also supporting, among others; while he has also graced high profile DSP playlists. He has also played incredibly well-received live sets, often with an immersive visual element.
