Review: Ren Schofield aka Container is back with his first release of 2016 and our favourite noise/techno fiend lands comfortably on Jaime Williams and Powell's ever-excellent Diagonal label. Title cut "Vegetation" sets the scene with a murky, swamped-out techno fuzz that sounds a little like the soundtrack to an apocalypse, a blur of the senses that is swiftly followed by the more militaristic beats of the equally fuzzy 'Soak" - what a tip! "Funnel" waves its distorted bleeps through heavy kicks and snares, "Radiator" a certified Container head banger, and the final tune "Insulation" is a broken medley of bass, drums and pure grit. Sick.

Review: Editions Mego offshoot Spectum Spools has been gaining wide attention recently, partly thanks to Bee Mask's peerless work but also through Ren Schofield's maniacal excursions. The man otherwise known as Container has already produced one LP for the label and this new work sees a maturation of his experimental side, furthering it into an overwhelming cesspool of electro-tinged madness. Opening with "Dripping" is certainly a bold move, with a demented beat arrangement swirling feverishly into a sea of screeching noises and aggressive bells; things show no signs of slowing down on "Paralyzed", mixing a bumping breakbeat structure together with layers upon layers of effects and wild percussion elements. "Acclimator" settles into a neater groove, one which faintly resembles a murky, deep techno moment - delayed snares and crackling drums all round. Over on the B-side, we have what resembles Drexciya on acid, the merciless drums of "Perforate" occupying every corner of the track with a swirling mass of 303-tweaked melodies forming a dense puddle of sci-fi atmospherics; while "Refract" combines a crispy post-jungle drum structure with minimalistic tones and eerie synths. Container pushing the limits on this one - warmly recommended!

Review: Cleveland's Ren Schofield returns to Spectrum Spools with a new installment in his notorious LP series for Spectrum Spools. Schofield has been releasing music as Container since 2009, also on labels such as Diagonal, Morphine and Liberation Technologies. The label themselves have stated that despite leaving a trail of albums that got more intense, this album is by far the 'most loaded.' Featuring tracks with narrative, surrounded by broken acid basslines that grate against disintegrating tape loops - here you can be sure to expect more crunchy, overdriven and saturated grooves of the breakneck variety, that you've come to know from the cult American producer and live act.

Review: Oh, how we've longed for the return of our favourite head-banger and it seems Spectrum Spools has answered our prayers. Ren Schofield, otherwise known as Container, has already released two LPs for the label, both called LP, but each one has seen a constant rebirth of his distorted and utterly screwed up view of techno. There's seven tracks on here, seven devilish pieces of brain dynamite masquerading themselves as jams made by a human and not by an extra-terrestrial. The LP starts with a shock, "Eject", and doesn't get any more sweet or easy on the ears. From "Remover" to "Calibrate", Container unleashes a filthy collection of clusterbombs which will render any dancefloor a living, walking hell...and we love that idea! A must, as per usual.
