    ‘Depressive in a good way’: DJ and producer Shed on his new album, revisiting his first home in East Germany Dina Elsayed

 

We met up with DJ and producer Shed, aka René Pawlowitz, following the November 29 release of his fifth studio album “Oderbruch” on Berghain’s label Ostgut Ton.

Pawlowitz opens up about the inspiration for the album, which centers around memories from the region his family’s from in East Germany. He talks about how the area has changed and doesn’t hide the sense of nostalgia that emerges: “It’s a mixture of being sad but also happy. It’s depressive in a good way,” he says.

He’ll present the album at Berghain on December 8 in a special live performance at Säule.
