Container is the stripped-down, beat-oriented electronic project of Providence, RI's Ren Schofield, who somehow sculpts viscous punk sonics into raw jackhammer rhythms that groove in the most relentless, hypnotic, unstoppable and psychedelic ways currently working the grid. This lo-fi mesh of maxed-out drum patterns, spiralling loops and mesmerising arrangements makes for live music of serious weight and function, suitable for both high-end dancefloors and filthy warehouse parties alike.Started in 2009 in response to his discovery of nineties minimal techno, Container combined elements from his background in noise and cassette collage music with a new found interest in repetitive beats to create this raw and damaged rhythmic sound. After a string of various cassette releases, the debut full-length LP was released by Editions Mego sub-label Spectrum Spools in 2011, and has since been followed up by a second Spools LP, the Treatment 12" on the Morphine label, and a new 12" on Mute's Liberation Technologies imprint which will be dropping this Fall.
