One of the most original and critically lauded voices in electronic music, Shackleton has moved from the depths of the early 2000s dubstep underground to a diverse range of international collaborations and commissions in the last decade. After honing his hypnotic beats on the cult UK record label Skull Disco, his unique rhythmic touch is now heard on some of the most adventurous and progressive projects that have emerged from the European dance scene in recent years. Shackleton’s work today continues to explore conceptual and spiritual themes with an emotional depth beyond most artists working in European dance music today, and his visions of inner space, apocalypse and dread are more timely than ever before.
Having collaborated with prestigious vocalists such as Anika and Ernesto Tomasini on his latest albums, Shackleton announced two new live shows in 2019, which would run parallel to his ongoing and increasingly selective club activity. After the break forced by the pandemic, MUTEK Barcelona will have the privilege of presenting Shackleton's latest sound arsenal in its 13th edition.
