NoiseFloor festival: "Below is a recording of Shelley's excellent live set from the May 2012 festival. The festival itself attempts to draw together music which is composed around beats as a primary compositional element and music which is based around composing with texture and gesture as formative elements. This live set sums up the ideology of the festival in one single recording."

The performance "Frequency" drew inspiration from the history of Stafford's connection to the beginnings of early British rave culture. Its direct reference is to a live performance by Altern 8 recorded in the car park of Shelley's Lazerdrome nightclub in Stafford in 1991. The recording was pressed on to the B side of the Altern 8 track "Frequency" by their record label Stafford North. Employing stripped down percussive extracts and minimal abstract noise sourced from early hardcore tracks and field recordings alongside cyclical bass pulses, "Frequency" not only addresses the site-specific sonic heritage of Stafford but also emerging technological processes. Presented as a concentrated listening piece, without the audience's expectation to dance implicit within club culture, "Frequency" is intended as a reductive rendering of this era of British bass history and its legacy within contemporary electronic music.
