Podcast 258: Shed
Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Although we’d like to think that every installment of XLR8R’s weekly podcast series features an artist whose work is well worth listening to, we do recognize that not every mix we post will qualify for must-listen status with our entire audience. That being said, this week’s podcast comes from Shed (a.k.a. Rene Pawlowitz), and should be considered an exception to the rule. Fresh off the release of his new album, The Killer, the German producer has put together an exclusive mix, the consumption of which should be required for each and every XLR8R reader. Over the past decade, Shed has been fine tuning his dark and dubby sound, perfecting an aesthetic that’s rooted in techno, but also branches into bits of house, garage, and various other facets of the electronic spectrum. Much of this exploratory work has been done via Shed’s litany of pseudonyms, something he was kind enough to break down for us in detail just a few weeks back. It’s a good thing that he did, because while there aren’t any official Shed productions in the podcast tracklisting (save for a single remix), several of his other aliases do make an appearance. Weaving those contributions together with an interesting assortment of rare, early-’90s cuts and a handful of more current offerings, Shed has assembled a potent hour-long mix that largely consists of thundering warehouse techno. Full of sharp, metallic synths and blunt, cavernous beats, the podcast is surprisingly short on nuance and finely detailed minutiae. In truth, it’s a bit relentless, albeit in a way that’s undeniably immersive and hypnotic. It appears that Shed wants our attention, and he’s certainly got it.

Falty ain’t faulty. Hailing from New York City and being truly in love with jungle (next to his girlfriend of course), Andrew Lustman aka FaltyDL sounds much more like a Croydon kid. You know the gospel by now: British bass music, caught in a crossfire of influences from dub, techno and house, melted with hip hop and future soul. For the lack of a better explanation, FaltyDL is somewhere to be found in there, only his music has that little something extra. With releases on Planet Mu, Ramp Recordings, Amsterdam’s Rush Hour and his debut album ‘Love Is A Liability’, the future is looking bright for the dedicated smoker. Bass music’s delight – caught alive and kicking at Mutek Barcelona, 2012.

This playlist is comprised of 32 tracks of some of the most forward-thinking UK music. The music that has been made in the UK in the last year or so has been truly exciting as genre boundaries seem to have been forgotten, and a constant stream of tracks comprised of post-dubstep, future garage, acid techno, techno, and a load of other stuff, way too hard to categorise, looks set to continue coming out of the UK.
