Saad Ayub Makes The Right Moves With Techno Opus ‘Shuffle’

Saad Ayoub drops Shuffle on Rollerblaster Records

Bringing something new into Techno is no mean feat! Judging based on ’Shuffle,’ the official debut release by Toronto DJ and producer Saad Ayub for UK indie Rollerblaster Records, he is set to do exactly that.

Those that couldn’t be counted as Techno fans, and even those that are, often don’t realize one key thing. It is a genre that in many ways coincides with modern minimalist classical music. Both are really hard to make into something exciting. You have these constantly revolving themes, in these case beats, that rely on subtle changes that have to keep the interest of primarily the dancers. If they attract the listeners, even better. It is certainly a reverse thing with minimalists. If as a Techno artist you can strike a balance between dancing and listening, you are golden. That is exactly what Saad Ayub was able to come up with ‘Shuffle.’

It is a really tricky thing, but in its seven or so minutes, Saad Ayub manages to bring some truly fresh air into the Techno genre. First of all, the beats, the tracks backbone are fresh and vibrant. They are powerful enough to keep the dance floor full, or keep the solo, isolated fans at home on their feet throughout. Secondly, Ayub makes the beats shift in not so usual sequences, and the accompanying elements keep the listeners ears pricked up. Dancing or no dancing. 

The key effect Saad Ayub creates here is that you get the feeling that ’Shuffle’ has played through in only a minute or two. Afterward, the only thing you are left with is to press the repeat button and let it play a few more times. Oh, this Rollerblaster Records release also creates one more effect – it makes listeners that are not Techno fans re-think their stance.
