Deliriant is the solo project of Shane Renew, 22, from South Africa. He had his first introduction to music at age 6, when he learned to play piano. At age 13 he began DJing, playing many styles from house to drum & bass. In 2004 Shane moved to Cape Town, which is renowned for it’s epic psytrance scene, and he immediately knew that he wanted to produce and DJ at these parties. He started playing at several psytrance nights around Cape Town, and became a label DJ with Beartrap outdoor parties. His first major gig was Vortex/Alien Safari New Years Eve party, Prism in 2006/7 playing alongside Black & White. Since then he has played at many major events featuring international artists such as Azax Syndrom, Phatmatix, Menog, B55, Domestic, Hyperfrequencies, and many more. In early 2007 Shane sold his first track ‘Fusion’, due to be released on Nexus Media various artists compilation Midnight Storm 3. He plans to release a multitude of singles on various labels as well as releasing his debut album with Nexus Media, to which he has recently signed. In 2007 he qualified as an advanced sound engineer, which has no doubt set a high standard for his production. The Deliriant sound is hard and driving, but still maintains a melodic feel. It is intelligent in structure, and contains minimalist elements of glitch and techno. Expect dark atmospheres, powerful leads, intense breakdowns and an always solid groove. Watch this space.
