Widely regarded as one of the best live acts to have ever played at The Shelter, we are excited to welcome back the mighty Shackleton for his first visit to China since 2013.
Shackleton的音乐事业是从2004年开始的，当时 Ian Hicks 的 Mordant Music厂牌发行了他一首早期作品叫做Stalker, 这首歌之后还出现在了Rough Trade的Best of 2004 合辑当中。在之后的2005年，Shackleton就开始了自己的唱片厂牌Skull Disco。
Shackletons musical output began in 2004 when Ian Hicks of Mordant Music released an early track called Stalker, which later appeared on Rough Trades Best of 2004 compilation. Soon after this, in 2005, Shackleton started his record label Skull Disco.
Skull Disco厂牌的发行无论是在音乐还是视觉方面都别具一格。大部分的作品都来自于Shackleton和 Appleblim，当时的音乐混合了怪异的宗教打击乐器，以及超重的低音，跟他们制作dubstep 和techno 的同代人相比，是更具实验性的前卫先锋音乐。在得到BBC Radio, Hardwax唱片店，Resident Advisor,FACT，以及 Wire杂志（2010年十二月封面）的大力支持下，厂牌在地下音乐界乐迷的心中得到了广泛的尊重和崇拜。
Skull Discos releases were idiosyncratic both musically and visually. Often comprising double A-sides from Shackleton and Appleblim, the music was a peculiar mixture of ritual percussion and heavy bass which had as much to do with more experimental and avant forms of music as with their dubstep and techno contemporaries. With strong support from BBC Radio, Hardwax record store, Resident Advisor, FACT and The Wire magazine (which featured him on their front cover in December 2010), the label achieved widespread respect in the underground music world and a cult status amongst fans.
2009年的时候 Shackleton决定关掉Skull Disco。虽然它取得了不可思议的成功，完成了十张12寸唱片的发行，但也差不多是时候继续前行了。
In 2009 Shackleton decided to close down Skull Disco. It had become an unlikely success but he felt it was time to move on after ten 12s.
在 Skull Disco之后他的首个作品就是发行在Perlon旗下的一张全长专辑Three EP，之后还出现在了年底不同出版刊物的榜单上：The Wire, Groove Magazine, FACT magazine, Resident Advisor , Pitchfork 以及 Little White Earbuds. 2010年的时候Shackleton被邀请去重新录制他在伦敦著名夜店Fabric的混音set，被收录进他们的混音CD系列。这就像工具一样展示了非常规有要求的音乐在舞池也一样有作用。之后的2011年Shackleton与多年好友Pinch合作，在Honest Jons厂牌发行了一张专辑。
His first release after Skull Disco was a full-length album titled Three EPs on Perlon records, which appeared in the end of year lists of publications as diverse as The Wire, Groove Magazine, FACT magazine, Resident Advisor , Pitchfork and Little White Earbuds. In 2010 Shackleton was invited to re-record one of his live sets from Londons famous Fabric nightclub for release as part of their mix-CD series. This served well as a tool to demonstrate that unconventional and demanding music can function on dancefloors. In 2011 Shackleton collaborated with long-term friend Pinch for an album on the Honest Jons label.
在Perlon, Fabric 和 Honest Jons旗下的发行也算是相当成功，不过那些作品又很快被2012年发行的The Drawbar Organ EP／Music for The Quiet Hour超越了。新作品发行在他的新厂牌Woe To the Septic Heart，这张唱片很明显看到Shackleton更加深入的踏进了非常规的领域。Music for The Quiet Hour特别苛求的就是一个分成五个部分的长故事，比起任何已经建立起的电子音乐风格，都更赋有avant drone和美式极简主义。
Although the Perlon, Fabric and Honest Jons releases were certainly successful, these works were topped by the 2012 release of The Drawbar Organ EPs/Music for The Quiet Hour. Released on his new Woe To the Septic Heart label, this record saw Shackleton moving into much more unconventional territory. Music for The Quiet Hour was particularly demanding being comprised of one long narrative piece separated into five sections and shared more characteristics with American minimalism, avant drone and serialism than with any of the more established electronic dance music genres.
最近Shackleton又用他的Deliverance三部曲，巩固了自己舞池摧毁器的地位，同时不忘自己前卫电子音乐先锋的身份，与Ernesto Tomasini，这位有着跨越实验戏剧，喜剧表演，并与Othon, Marc Almond, and Sleazy有过合作的背景的 cult歌手，表演家以及艺术家一起工作，于2016年7月在Honest Jon的厂牌发行了这张受到全宇宙欢迎的专辑：“Devotional Songs”。
More recently, Shackleton has consolidated his position as dancefloor destroyer with his Deliverance trilogy whilst also confirming himself to be a maverick avant electronic music pioneer through his work with Ernesto Tomasini, the cult singer, performer and artist whose history spans experimental theatre, cabaret and collaborations with Othon, Marc Almond, and Sleazy. This collaboration has culminated in the universally well-received album, “Devotional Songs”, released on Honest Jons records in July 2016.
