  • René Pawlowitz is re-releasing his first two Shed albums, 2008's Shedding The Past and 2010's The Traveller, on vinyl at the end of the month. The two LPs from Pawlowitz's most prominent production alias, each initially released through Ostgut Ton, drew widespread acclaim when they came out—in RA's annual top albums polls, we rated Shedding The Past #1 for 2008, and two years later The Traveller grabbed the #3 spot. Pawlowitz is now giving them new life through his own label, The Final Experiment, following on from a digital re-release last year. Both LPs are being remastered, re-pressed on heavyweight vinyl and put in a sleeve with the slightly modified cover artwork seen on the 2016 digital versions. The new edition of Shedding The Past brings together all 12 tunes that had been split between the original CD and wax releases, which had separate tracklists with format-specific exclusive material. Listen to Shedding The Past track "Slow Motion Replay."
    And revisit "Atmo - Action" from The Traveller.
