About Container

The solo guise of multifaceted artist Ren Schofield, Container became one of avant-garde electronic label Spectrum Spools' most intriguing artists. The Nashville, Tennessee producer released his first LP -- simply titled LP -- on John Elliot's (Emeralds) curated Editions Mego offshoot label. A mind-warping crunch of electronics, smashed techno loops, and distortion spread over just five tracks, LP was a visceral assault on the senses and won Schofield wild acclaim and applause in 2011. He quickly followed this with another album -- again named LP -- in 2012. Recorded on Labor Day weekend 2012 in Providence, Rhode Island, it was a darker and more cohesive affair than its predecessor. EPs on Morphine Records and Liberation Technologies followed, and Spectrum Spools released Container's third album -- yet again bearing the title LP -- in 2015. Recalling the likes of D.A.F., Surgeon, and Legowelt, Container proved to be one of the most exciting "avant-techno" artists to emerge from the latter-2000s' electronic underground scene and, most importantly, he was the one who could really pack a punch and make a lasting impression. ~ Aneet Nijjar
