Shammen Delly

Electronica // Inishowen, Donegal

Aengus Friel is an Electronica/Ambient music producer and artist working under the moniker 'Shammen Delly' hailing deep from within the hills of Co. Donegal. Friel has been producing lo-fi eldritch oneiric dreamscape like electronic music inspired by his surroundings and landscape in where the artist grew up for over a decade now, with intoxicating sounds laced with saturated down-tempo rhythms, break beats and sampled nods to vintage psychedelic & library music, early electronic music and heavily inspired by 1990's electronica with a sense of psychogeography and hauntology, mangled in with dreams and local folklore with cultish tales, which evokes a sense of evocation in which Shammen Delly visits the past in order for recording methods to damage the audio using tape machines for manipulation, reel to reel tape recorders using a series of loops cut and taped together sampled back and synthesised and mangled into something either ethereal or with saturated haunted bliss. Shammen Delly has released albums, singles and EP’s on labels such as Culture Glitch Records, Psychonavigation Records, The Department of Energy, Touched Records and also self-released music on Bandcamp.
