|HISTORY ARTISTS SUB-LABELS|
RENEGADE ANDROID (aka Shawn Shackleford) became a part of the DTRASH Record label during the summer of 1999. His debut release, 'Self-Titled', came out on DTRASH that same year. It was the first departure from standard static/breaks/shouting for our record label and RENEGADE's recordings took a unique approach and created an outstanding release.
The style of his single DTRASH release isn't easy to sum up but we would probably call it 'FX-driven post-Warp hardcore for relaxation'. His influence upon other DTRASH artists following his release is often noticeable. 'Self-Titled''s initial CDR release sold out almost immediately following its distribution through Scratch Records in Vancouver, BC.
After this, he focused for the next couple of years on other sound projects including d/Phlox and Unseelie and collaborations with different people in the scene. In 2003, we welcomed him back for a return CD "The Sprawl" which will hit Summer 2003 - A little darker and harder, but the same layer of reality as his Ecstasy-glitchbeat debut.
