LWE Podcast 188: Redshape

LWE got in touch with Kramer to talk about his relationship with his Redshape identity and how his production methods have changed over the years. As long term fans we were very happy to be presented with a recording of one of the producer’s formidable live sets from 2013, kicking off 2014 in fine style.

Redshape, Square

Distinctly less immediate than Redshape’s previous LP, The Dance Paradox, Square develops his sound in a more insular direction.

Redshape, In Trust We Space

In Trust We Space finds Redshape returning the sounds of his first few EPs while teasing out some of the ideas first initiated on his debut album.

Palisade, So What?

Regardless of whether or not Palisade’s Laid debut is a cheeky jab at nagging journalists, it’s best to take the title in stride and listen to the 12″ without any expectations.

Mokira, Time Axis Manipulation Remixes

On this three-part 10″ series for Kontra-Musik, Mokira’s shift towards dubbed rhythms is ideally suited to being remixed by Silent Servant, Echospace, and Redshape.

Redshape, Red Pack

To these ears at least, Redshape’s debut album was one of the best techno long players of ’09, so the appearance of Red Pack so soon afterwords is a pleasant surprise. While not intended as a follow-up to The Dance Paradox, this double pack performs an equally important function, neatly encapsulating the disparate dance floor styles that now fall under the masked one’s widening palette.

LWE’s Top 10 Albums of 2009

It seems once again artists have looked past shriveling album sales and pooh poohed format worries while creating a truly outstanding crop of longplayers. Whether exploring the sinews connecting electronic music and jazz, amalgamating traditional African and house sounds, gearing up a set of club bangers or diving into unknown recesses in listeners’ heads, the 10 albums LWE’s reviewing staff chose represent the best 2009 had to offer.

Redshape, Paradox Dubs

Mysterious German producer Redshape is one of the most impressive examples of a general shift in techno back to classical sounds and styles, and “Paradox Dubs,” released in tandem with his stellar Dance Paradox debut album, will reinforce his reputation as a torchbearer for traditional techno. Even the presentation typifies a purism — and I thought I’d never get to say this — that is welcome against the backdrop of a seemingly infinite slew of paper thinly produced techno. “Paradox Dubs” is available on a limited edition 10″, dished out on a first come, first served basis to customers who buy the vinyl version of the album. Until the next major Redshape project, “Paradox Dubs” also brings a neat, though possibly unwitting sense of closure to his output to date.
