In early 2006 techno's own masked man Redshape appeared first time on infamous Dutch imprint Delsin records. This initial release "Shapedworld EP" kicked him into the international techno scene, getting support from all major DJ from day one. Redshape soon developed his own individual view on modern dance music and set to leave a mark in techno.
Since coming to prominence over the last few years, very few producers (with the exception of Carl Craig and a few others) have come close to matching his techno fied mission, meaning each and every Redshape 12" is held in high regard by the more discerning techno heads. His music brought him into the yearly top lists of German's groove & De-bug as well as a lot of other magazines.
Trying to describe his sound is kind of a hard task, sitting somewhere between everything in dance music and Redshape's own imagination you get a direct extract - not minimal, not maximal and always historical respecting the vibe of detroit.
Resident Advisor's Pete Chambers once said "The future of the past never sounded more contemporary." which perfectly surrounds redshapes musical vision.
Repeating is definitaly a thing Redshape works hard to prevent, so his live shows, which brought him to nearly every known European club, morph and develop everytime to never play the same show a second time.
As a DJ Redshape is still very inspired by the good old school of mixing and trying to make tracks speak to tracks, making music out of music. Redshapes music and remixes have been released on labels like Styrax Leaves, Delsin, Music Man, R&S etc. not forgetting his own imprint "Present Recordings". Working together with Delsin Records he will releasehis debut "The Dance Paradox" in October 2009 setting things for a bright 2010 which will see a brand new Live (Tour) show as well as scheduled releases for his labels
