EDITORS’ NOTES

Christian EDM artist Matthew Parker makes his major-label debut with a galvanizing effort boasting creative beats and sanctified lyrics. There’s a homebrewed energy to this Michigan native’s work that lets his sincerity shine. Shadowlands keeps the accent on the positive with buoyant tracks like “We Go,” “Bleeding Hearts,” and “Life Again.” The zany spirit of “MouseTrap” (featuring rapper Skrip) goes nicely with the dubstep dizziness of “All Round De World” (spotlighting St. Matthew’s raga-drenched vocals) and the techno fireworks of “Light of Dawn” (a showcase for Cash Hollistah’s hip-hop testimony). This hits a sweet spot between rave and revival.
