We couldn’t be more than happy with this one. Chikage’s debut LP on our imprint received so much love from some of the industry’s leading platforms: Keep Deep, Deep Tempo, Infernal Sounds and Juno Download, which brought a brighter feeling to us during these difficult times.
“Chikage” sounds familiar, you’ve heard him before but you are not prepared for this! ISR found Chikage a while back and released a freebie entitled “Hope” just to give you a taste of what was to come from this amazing and talented artist.”

We’d like to take a moment to show our gratitude to Deep Tempo for doing what they do! There not many projects out there supporting the deep dubstep scene and these guys do it with such passion and accuracy and we love it !
Embracing the 140 scene through C- BO and Cuttah’s perspective and it’s always a pleasure listening ISR releases being rinsed by them.
To all the 140bpm gang, Show ’em some love!

“There is a certain level of quality we have come to expect when taking in new music from Iron Shirt Recordings, a level which they hit and surpass with this latest tasty number from Chikage. The title track ‘Fall Of Light’ greets us firstly with a spooky introductory soundscape, with luscious pads slowly descending into some grizzly UKG goodness. This is then chased up with the smooth textures of ‘First Contact’ along with Wreckage’s minimal remix. Next, we encounter the crunchy percussive inputs and writhing bass designs of ‘Sleep Paralysis’ before the tempo leaps up across the gnarly halftime vibes of ‘Duality Of Man’. Finally, the shimmering vocal influxes and sweeping pads of ‘Half Moon’ alongside the eerie rhythmic designs and bone-chilling high end of ‘Last Stand’ see the project out perfectly.”
