Shed a Light

When it comes to full range, dynamic and prosperous atmospheres, René Pawlowitz seems to create his magnum opus with every new release; with an important note, that his use of different aliases for all of his styles have an equally big impact on the scenes they turn to.

In 2008, the ‘Shedding The Past’ album was released on Ostgut Ton as the first album from René, put under the Shed name that derives from the album title. Although the album itself had a huge impact due to it’s many rooted tracks and moods, there was also the sense of an album not following any concept.

“STP was kind of a compilation, that is true. All these tracks were made in 3 years around 2006-08.”

With ‘Shedding The Past’, the different tracks and moods created a very unique sound, not really following any traditional structures usually found within his closer producer friends. Drawing inspiration from a lot of different styles, René seems to be able to combine these into his own sound – which is highly regarded as one of a kind.

“It’s coming from the days where UK-Hardcore was growing up. When Carl Craig as BFC or Piece and Kevin Saunderson as Tronik House still made good tracks… long time ago……”

“For “The Traveller” it was more a creating of a long player. All the tracks are only made for this album. The album grew from track to track. This album is very contiguous. It’s maybe more made for listening it at home.”

As with most of Shed’s productions, all of the tracks on ‘The Traveller’ share a constant continuation of pure energy, that seems to bind together not only the rhythm and structure, but also the soul and honesty. There is a huge emotive impact that can’t be denied in the productions, especially when they are played in the right environment.

“The melody. The simple melody… constant repeating. Easy construction. No arty-farty or constructed breaks.”

Do you think it’s possible to combine the attitude and sounds from Equalized, Wax, Shed and The Panamax Project into an album?

“Yes, definitely. As you can hear. Hopefully….. Hahaha! 🙂 No, actually not. Because EQD or Wax – tracks are made for the floor, for dj’s. This album is not made for dj’s. All the tracks are very short and not formulated. 2 things why the dj’s of today will/can’t play it.”

    Great to hear some samples from this album. Been hearing mixed review but from what I could hear it sounds great. Really looking forward to hearing this. Thanks for posting some samples. As always, I hope you’re well.

    I agree with Benjamin Anon. This sounds great. Can’t wait for it to be released. The samples lead me to believe that it will be just as good as “Shedding The Past.”
