One of Ostgut Ton's most interesting characters, Shed returns with his second album The Traveller. Our impression is that Shed had lots of fun making this album - his love for everything from UK hardcore and jungle to techno and dubstep seeps through the tracks and resonates with the listener. "M R Class" for example is proper Berghain tackle - a seriously thumping dub techno bomb. Elsewhere "Final Experiment" sounds like Shed has been listening to Werk Discs chief Actress, all bleeps and sonic squiggles submerged deep beneath layers of compression, while "Hello Bleep" has a cheeky "Spastik"-esque drum roll. Much like his debut opus Shedding The Past, this album successfully flows as a continuous body of music, despite (or perhaps because of) the sketch like quality of many of the songs. Undoubtedly one of the most important albums of 2010.
