Shield - My Flava EP
(£9.98 Incl VAT)
Released 6th May 2016
Copenhagen representative Shield has been on a constant rise with his innovative contribution to hiphop and drum&bass over the past couple of years. With support from Noisia, Hype, Skeptical, Alix Perez, The Upbeats, TC and many more, the future is looking bright for the 28 year old scandinavian as he continues to develop his own sound.
Having a master degree from the Royal Danish Academy of Music playing classical percussion, Shield has great knowledge when it comes to drums and always had a passion of creating new grooves and unheard rhythms. Inspiration has come from a wide selection of electronic artists and classical music, and has given him the gift of blending it all together in his productions.
Sounding like a vintage scary movie on crack, tracks like "Horrormovie" were given as a free download on his soundcloud page, and got huge response when Ivy Lab played it on their Critical Sound show on RinseFM back in march 2015. The track was also supported by Noisia on their weekly podcast and they even put it on their Favourites Of 2015 tracklist.
With lots of exciting solo projects and collaborations with producers abroad, Shield is also keeping it local. He and his good friend and also MC, Black Daniels, has been making music together for quite some years and they've toured many countries with their energetic live show, produced entirely by Shield himself. Back in 2014 they were invited to Redbull Studios in Copenhagen to record Black Daniels' debut EP. It came out on Black Daniels' own imprint CART Records, and the EP got them playing at some of the biggest festivals in Scandinavia.
With releases on various drum&bass labels such as CART Records, Blackout Music NL, Gun Audio and Nemesis Recordings UK to name a few, Shield strives to produce the full spectrum - yet always with his signature sound. Wether it's drum&bass, hiphop or any kind of breakbeat, Shield always manages to break barriers with his shuffling drums, stabbin' basslines and weird foleys.
