Land Shark

Land Shark

Land Shark is the brainchild of one Lance DeSardi, a Texas producer and DJ who's been spinning since the age of 15. Given his pedigree, it would be reasonable to expect that his debut as Land Shark would be long on tricks and technical virtuosity, but instead it's packed with lean, limber dance grooves made more to fill floors than to blow minds. Which is by no means a problem: "Riot" reveals DeSardi's early love of darkwave, "Can You Relate" is taut and tense and "Shake Me" is four and a half minutes of ominous pulse and pound.
