@ The Shelter – 5 YongFu Lu
Co-conspirator of the infamous Skull Disco, along-side Appleblim, Shackleton’s maverick take on big basslines and complex beats doesn’t fit easily in to any category. Thundering bass, tribal rhythms, snaking percussion, hypnotic melodies and dubwise sensibilities, his sound is like no other. Taking influences from the UK’s dubstep sound, Berlin’s techno expertise and drum and percussion rhythms from every corner of the globe, Shackleton produces a sound which is hard to describe but even harder to resist.
2012’s The Draw Bar Organ EP’s/Music For The Quiet Hour was some of his most inspired and groundbreaking work to date, and his new live show has taken his sound to a whole other level. Shackleton rarely travels, but his last 2 shows at The Shelter (2011 & 2010) made such an impact that he has agreed to come back once more with a brand new live show. Special guest support from Downstate (live).
