Live at MUTEK 2010 // Highly regarded German techno producer Shed (aka Rene Pawlowitz) was one of the highlights of MUTEK 2010, the 11th edition of the festival
Highly regarded German techno producer Shed (aka Rene Pawlowitz) was one of the highlights of MUTEK 2010, the 11th edition of the festival. An atypical artist in a crowded genre, Pawlowitz, who also records as Wax and EQD, makes highly disciplined and conceptual techno that foregoes the latest trends for a deeper understanding of the genre's multi-faceted history, pulling together half-forgotten tangents of glitch, acid, breakbeats, and other beat templates into tracks that are quintessentially new.
For MUTEK 2010, Shed headlined a stellar line-up of international techno billed for a Friday night showcase at the 1000-capacity Club Soda. Also on the bill that night, UK's Actress, Poland's Jacek Sienkiewicz, New York's Cheap and Deep, and Canada's Orphx.
