The self-effacing Lancashire-born Sam Shackleton first came to prominence during the early rise of the dubstep scene, running the label Skull Disco alongside Appleblim. Skull Disco is considered to have been quite influential, in that it combined more abstract or avant musical forms with music that could work on advanced dancefloors. It was home to Shackleton’s cuts such as ‘Stalker’, ‘Death Is Not Final’ and ‘Blood On My Hands’, reworked by Ricardo Villalobos into an 18 minute four to the floor version. Most recently he released 3 EPs on Perlon, a Berlin label renowned for its low key approach to high creativity. From dubstep to techno, Shackleton’s maverick take on big basslines and complex beats doesn’t fit into any easy categories and that’s how it’s going to stay. Shackleton’s records and live sets are thrilling and unique in their absorbing complexity and pure dancefloor enchantment.

“I got into making music on a computer by default.  My previous partner in music went to the other side of the world and converted to Islam, and I didn’t want to be a one-man karaoke outfit so I bought a computer.  This turned out to be a good thing for me as it made it easier to make the music that I wanted to make. Mine and my friend’s lives had a diverse soundtrack, but I remember that Stooges, Can, Throbbing Gristle, Kraftwerk and Faust were all favourites.  To be honest, I haven’t really moved on from that stuff. I started playing guitar in a punk band at 14.  We were not very good and got booed off stage and things thrown at us.  Plus ça change, really!”

Tickets are available for the Fabric date this Thursday here


18TH – 25TH NOVEMBER 2010


The legendary dub originator Scientist lands in the UK to celebrate the release of new Tectonic album ‘Scientist Launches Dubstep Into Outer Space’. The seven date tour kicks off at Fabric, London on the 18th November before visiting Dublin, Bournemouth, Glasgow, Nottingham, Brighton and Bristol – teaming up with Red Bull Music Academy in London, Glasgow and Brighton.

On this tour Scientist will be live dub mixing renowned reggae group The Upsetters, who were originally Lee Scratch Perry’s house band before going on to form the nucleus of The Wailers. Completing this very special line up is Tectonic boss Pinch and fellow dubstep luminaries Mala, Loefah, and Pokes.

Tectonic’s most ambitious project to date, ‘Scientist Launches Dubstep Into Outer Space’ sees legendary dub engineer Scientist version 12 exclusive and unreleased dubstep rhythms from the scene’s top producers including Kode 9, Shackleton, Pinch and Mala. It’s a vital and unprecedented move for dubstep; one year in the making, uniting roots and futurism in visionary style. In archetypal style, Scientist puts decades of tactile, hands-on experience to work, deftly transforming the killer originals into living, breathing dub music with his most sacred of black arts.

Hopeton Brown aka Scientist is one of Jamaica’s most revered dub engineers. His career behind the mixing desk began in the mid ’70s at King Tubby’s Dromilly Road studios in Kingston earned him the “Scientist” tag in a legendary conversation between Bunny Lee and King Tubby. By the early ’80s he was working at Tuff Gong studios and it was during this period that he created his seminal series of albums for Greensleeves including ‘Scientist Rids The World Of The Curse Of The Evil Vampires‘ and ‘Scientist Wins The World Cup‘. In the tradition of Lee “Scratch” Perry, King Tubby, and Prince Jammy, Scientist developed a distinct and unmistakable style, manipulating reverb, delay and filters to create transient sonic dimensions which places him as one of the most distinguished dub engineers alive today.

With the advent of dubstep in the early ’00s and its subsequent entry to international consciousness, Scientist’s influence has never been more pertinent. From its genesis in sweaty, bass-loaded backroom sessions of South and East London to mainstream chart status, dubstep has come to define the cutting edge of dance music while still adhering to the deeply rooted principles of bass and space laid out by the original dub auteurs.

Label boss Pinch says “This project has taken over a year to put together from its conception late last summer. The final results are worth every minute of effort that’s gone into this – this is definitely my proudest moment for Tectonic to date. The influence of dub swings round full circle!”

Shackleton -Man On A String Part 1 and 2/Bastard Spirit(SEPTIC1) 12″ Vinyl (preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 6, 2010 by dk

Since writing the suicide note for Skull Disco in 2008, Shackleton has made a well received long player for Perlon and remixed the likes of Harmonia and Brian Eno, Moderat and To Rococo Rot as well as making a mix cd for the Fabric series and one of the final mixes for the Mary Anne Hobbes show on Radio One. This release however sees Shackleton once again with his own label which will go by the name of Woe To The Septic Heart!
Those who have heard Shackleton before may know what to expect and will not be surprised to hear two bass-heavy, percussive tracks with a psychedelic edge and an involved narrative that will perhaps not be played out on every dancefloor. More’s the pity.
