"The Rise & Fall EP" finds Shook in a transitional mode, as the old school funk meets modern electro sound of The Glow has been refined and honed into something more mature, dramatic and powerful.

Opening track "Through The Fire" sets the scene with a long, almost stadium rock-esque intro giving way to an assured mid tempo groover with a keen sense of drama and tension.

"Hold Tight" is the EP’s love letter to the 80s boogie sound that reflects in Shook’s music. It’s a funky, filtered work out building to a crescendo of Rhodes chords and clavi solos, and is the most dance floor focused track on the EP.

"Rise And Fall" picks up where Hold Tight left off with a tough 80s funk sound, a bass arpeggio chugging away incessantly in the background with guitar bass notes slapping through while Shook runs wild on the keys, building the track towards a hands in the air breakdown.

"She’s Waiting" is a carefree jam based around a catchy keyboard hook & vocal snippet, showcasing a softer side of Shook.

"Picture Moment" rounds off the EP in even more mellow fashion, all finger snaps and heartfelt keys, a sensitive, expansive ballad.

In the contemporary musical landscape between the nu-boogie scene headed up by artists such as Dam Funk, and the French house disciples such as Breakbot, Shook is carving out a niche all of his own: A single-minded artist with a unique and unalterable musical vision.
