In continuation of Shed’s remarkable dub material, Panamax stands for a freight weight of bass. With a modern feel, old tradition and a slow paced evolution within the tracks, the productions are up to his own standard (which he has defined and refined for years).

An easy going aesthetic surrounds these tracks, where the groove goes from a dub centered style into René’s own definition of music – everything is very electric, but at the same time it’s always structured enough to keep the funk. A dusty sense glues every element together in a very spiritual and mighty way on ‘Maximum Height’, where a jackin’ sense fills up between every bar. The groove is just there – a feeling that is required to make a track essential.

‘Maximum Width’ gets the same treatment as the Wax No. ‘10001B Panamax Mix’ got last year; sparse, heavy but at the same time very forward. What gives the track a taste, is the excellent influence it’s based on. As well as the A side, things feels very forward pushing and timeless. Excellent production which only leaves a heavy soundsystem weakened.

    Can’t understand this. Yeah, it’s good for creative man who’s searching for his unique sound, but there is too much different Shed here & there. Oneday, it will become boring.

    I think it would work brilliantly in a techno set. Like old Plastikman records, BPMs in half-time that will bring the right crowd along with you 🙂
