(Monkeytown, Ostgut Ton, 50 Weapons, Equalized)
Over the years, many artists have been tagged as shape-shifters, but few have taken it as far as Rene Pawlowitz. Known primarily as Shed, the German producer has been blurring the lines between techno, house, and dubby exploration for over a decade.A fixture in Berlin’s Hard Wax universe, the German producer is quick with the anonymous white label action on his own outfits like Wax, Equalized or the more designed but still disguised Power House label that feature breakbeat rave, gutter house and rocket techno. As much as these releases are surprising and capturing, it’s his oldest and most popular pseudonym Shed that is the root of his sound. Whether on his own imprint Soloaction, on Berghain’s Ostgut Ton or more recently on Modeselektor’s 50Weapons, Shed unifies the scientific approach that is part of Berlin’s techno history with the British hardcore continuum and an eccentric unique edge that is personally his. Whoever says that techno has reached the end of its days, has never heard of Shed.
Subversive is proud to present Shed live in a rare North American performance.
