The solo guise of multi-faceted artist Ren Schofield, Container became one of the 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 off-shoot 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. 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.
