In March 2010 the White Rhino crew go larger than ever before….A Bass and Techno showcase flowing through the day and into the night spread across 2 stages featuring perhaps the most unique and iconic producer to emerge from the past decade.. direct from Bristol via Berlin we are proud to present.... SHACKELTON (live)…
Psychedelic shamanic tones, tribal drum rhythyms and thick flowing surges of sub bass weave and stab around each other to create a surreal sonic landscape of dense and strange jungles bordering moonlit rocky deserts oozing black voodoo energy….This almost comes close to describing the sound of SHACKLETON, but to hear his music is something else entirely. This guys credibility as a rare and unique artist with an uncompromising vision is absoloutely heavy. Besides co-running his own label SKULL DISCO, which levitated him to God status in the global bass scene, his collaboration with Ricardo Villalobos on his single “Blood On My Hands” was recently voted #27 in the “Top 100 greatest dance tracks of the decade” on industry bible Resident Advisor and he was one of only a few artists to feature twice in the list. Upon descirbing his impact as a producer RA claim "By the end of the '00s, Sam Shackleton was widely considered to be dubstep's most artistically advanced rule-breaker."
His relocation to Berlin over a year ago has had an obvious influence on his direction, with his debut "Three EP's" album last year, released on legendary House and Techno imprint "Perlon" pushing his sound further beyond genre and scene restrictions, seeing him embrace a tighter sound more focussed on the dancefloor and the altered mindspace.
Things kick off at 2pm in the afternoon and rolll on into the night with a huge support line up featuring 20 dj’s spread across two stages…..
