When asked about this forthcoming release, Aero highlighted that; ‘The ‘Shelter EP’ serves as a deep dive into various styles, moods and atmospheres that I produced in the space of a year away from the dance floor. Music creation at this time seemed deeply personal, and utterly essential to my well-being. The tracks are somewhat different stylistically to a lot of the music I had made in the past and to what I’m making at the present moment. I feel like this EP represents a blank canvas approach to making music, drawing inspirations from contrasting corners and working without the idea of an end product.’
