Das Shadow are Andrew Phillpott and Christian Eigner. After writing with Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode on a selection of songs across the last two Depeche Mode albums (including the fantastic 'Nothing's Impossible') and across the whole of Gahan's 2007 solo album Hourglass, Phillpott and Eigner produced several well received remixes and decided to turn their hand back to their own work.
The result was Das Shadow and their debut single, 'Navigate the Menus' marks them out as ones to watch. Taking the dark introspection of Depeche Mode but applying layers of electronics and filters the result sounds like dark IDM. It's understated and the haunting melody stays with you long after the song has finished.
