Biography

There are at least three bands/artists with the name Shed.
(1) A German techno musician,
(2) a lo-fi punk band from Redmond, Washington and
(3) a straight edge death metal band from Lappeenranta.

(1) Shed (Rene Pawlowitz), Germany:
You simply cannot pinpoint the moment in history when Techno established itself as a new genre in dance music. Not anymore, anyway. Go ahead and try telling the story “the migration of the bassdrum”. You’ll realise quickly that all you get is a very pale picture, watered down by not-to-be-trusted records of oral history from the cities which played a major role in Techno. Historic developments are overshadowed by local characteristics and gossip.
The bomb exploded. It splintered into thousands of little pieces, was absorbed by the mainstream or took the next available flight back into the underground. While House re-established itself over the course of the last couple of years as a clearly-defined term for a very specific pool of ideas, the term Techno is still in hibernation. Too many genres and micro-trends are blocking the way. All the more important that there are producers out there who work hard to bring that primordial soup, of which hardly anybody knows anything anymore, back into the focus of the dancefloor, taking cover behind the extatic firebrands.

Shed is one of them.

His background is as classic as his music. Born in Frankfurt/Oder in 1975, he was fascinated by the new music played on the radio in the early 90s - a very typical thing for anyone from this generation who grew up in Berlin or its surrounding counties. DJ’s as diverse as Westbam, Marusha or Monika Dietl mixed styles and genres into a musical encyclopedia.
