Info Head High aka Shed:

Shed is a man of action, a living example how to reinvent oneself again and again within the boundaries of electronic music. At the same time, Shed does not follow shallow trends. The Berlin-based producer firmly believes in the power of techno music. When techno was invented, Shed was not present. Born in 1975 in Frankfurt/Oder in the former GDR, he was simply too young. And also too far away from where techno was happening. As it turns out, being afar from epicentres like Berlin or Frankfurt/Main, was a blessing. Listening to the radio, Shed could absorb all kinds of music, styles and genres without being aware of the music's point of origin, the fighting and the bitching between various cities, crews and labels. Music is music. This is not only still true, but was at the time the most famous quote from Monika Dietl. She was the first DJ who played techno on the radio in Berlin. Like no one else, she was in this for new music only and perfectly ignored the past. She did not play cheesy disco classics, but focused on new tunes from Chicago and Detroit, celebrated local scenes like the Netherlands and, most importantly, played music from the UK. Shed was hooked instantly. The sample-based sound of UK-hardcore, a quick liaison with Gabba and the back catalogue of Djax Up introduced techno to him in it's purest form possible. Then he finally discovered Chicago and Detroit. Deep inside the ever-fascinating triangle of beats, breaks and samples, he today identifies 1995/96 as the most important time in Techno for him,

It is this very love for the early days, for a time in which nothing had been decided yet, which is shimmering through and through on his second album for Ostgut Ton. "The Traveller" is not about the cultivated yet boring DJ-tool, but pitches those qualities of techno, which got us all going in the first place. Passion, surprise and the never-ending strive to push both the human being and the machines to the limit.

It is no surprise that this passion for innovation made Shed hit the brakes in the late 90s. The more commercialised the music became around that time, the more pissed off he got. Between 1998 and 2002 he did not buy a single record.
However, he never lost the love for the music, which had changed his life. He used these years to focus his own productions. Around 2000, he had finished some tracks, which combined and contained everything close to his Techno heart, things which were almost extinct in the real world. "I'm a techno-kid, through and through", he says and laughs. When he started shopping his demos around, the idea of his own label was already lurking behind the door. "I suddenly realised how important it was to really do it all by myself."

What followed was not rocket science. His first EP on his own Soloaction imprint sold well, soon after that he recorded two EPs for the Amsterdam-based Delsin label, and the more he released, the clearer his musical vision became. Shed melts and merges rough and demanding dance floor skeletons with shockingly detailed melodies, harmonic structures, irresistible hooks and airy arrangements. A formula you also expose yourself to when attending one of his DJ or live gigs. A never-ending climax of the groove. Like it was in the founding days of the music, which today is a part of our culture.

In 2008, Shed released his debut album. "Shedding The Past" is a monolith up to this very day, an unique musical statement. For him, the release of the album also flipped a new switch. Straight after the record hit the shelves, he started two new labels. On "Wax" and "Equalized" he has been releasing critically acclaimed dancefloor anthems ever since. An important step to clear the table. Having wiped the slate clean, he could then focus on "The Traveller", on which he presents his most radical tracks ever. Up until now, anyway..

The Sacrifice: 10€
After our last event with dj masda we decided to invite another collector and DJ from japan.

Born in Tokyo in 1989, Junki Inoue is one of the youngest of the new crop of ‘digger’ DJs, who are gradually making their names through sharing their personal interpretations of the history of electronic dance music.

A dedicated collector of vinyl for many years, Junki is comfortable playing sets at any time of the night and in any location: warm up, peak, closing, after-hours; warehouse or open air. Inoue’s sound stands out for its natural combination of Japanese and European traditions: precise, spare and elegant but warm and welcoming; deep and hypnotic for the mind, but always with energy and drive for the body.

Junki Inoue [ Toi Toi Musik / Cartulis Music ]

Fabiano José [ MERKWÜRDIG / SASS Music Club ]

Das Wort KLUBKULTUR soll wieder groß geschrieben werden.
#raven kann ich Klubkulturkolumnistin sehr gut, doch bei uns in der crowd kommt beim Feiern oft gar nicht an, was eigentlich alles an kreativen Schöpfungen aus den eigenen lokalen Reihen zu uns ertönt. Kulturelles Tun entsteht beim Feiern und der Organisation drumherum. Und: beim Produzieren elektronischer Musik. Darauf setze ich bei dieser Reihe den Fokus.

dazu gibt’s das Z U C K E R L K E T T E N ZIMMER

Hier kommen wir im SASS Music Club Wohnzimmer zusammen, um über das zu sprechen, was passiert, bevor ein Tune auf „play“ gesetzt wird. Ich will wissen, worauf es beim Produzieren ankommt.

…was sich bei den Menschen tut, die uns am DJ Pult das Weekend versüßen, wenn sie in ihren stickigen Producerkammerln sitzen, um uns nachher mit ihrer Kreation im Klub zu stimulieren:


Das ZuckerlkettenZimmer findet in unser aller Wohnzimmer statt:

# P O D C A S T_____

Zu einem Podcast-Plausch im SASS lad ich dazu drei Producer-DJs und eine*n Newvomer*in ein, um über die Kultur im Klub und in ihren Schöpfungen zu sprechen.

Das Z U C K E R L K E T T E N ZIMMER raved gemeinsam im Kreise.
Es wird heiß, es wird köchelnd, es wird eine Party, die dir erzählt, welche Eigenreleases gespielt werden, sobald sie gespielt werden.
