Konrad Black (Wagonrepair – Canada)
Solomun (Diynamic)
René Dachner (Weald)

Todd Shillingtion a.k.a. Konrad Black ist seit 10 Jahren mit DJing, Produzieren und Auftritten beschäftigt. Eine Konstante in seiner Karriere ist der für ihn typische Mix aus dreckigen Basssträngen und atmosphärischen Sounds der sich aus seinen Wurzeln im Drum and Bass und Hip Hop entwickelte. 2004 formierte Konrad Black Wagon Repair Recordings mit Mathew Jonson, Graham Boothby und Jesse Fisk. Er führte sein weites Panorama an Sound auf seinen ersten Wagon Repair Releases fort und veröffentlichte sehr starke Stücke wie z.B. "Draconia" das sich internationaler Beliebtheit erfreuen durfte – gefolgt vom Clubhit "Medusa Smile", beide ganz oben auf den Playlists von Kollegen wie Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Steve Bug und Loco Dice. Im November haben wir ihn deshalb zu Weald eingeladen und versprechen uns viel von seinem DJ – Set. Come As U Are!
Konrad Black (Wagonrepair – Canada)

Konrad Black has been involved in djing, producing and performing music for the past 10 years. A constant throughout his career is the signature mix of dirty bass threads with atmospheric sounds, emerging from his roots in Drum and Bass and Hip Hop. After his first release on Formation Records in the UK influence’s such as Maurizio and Klang inspired more minimal sounds, and in 1998, a meeting with Swayzak in Vancouver led to ‘Greycale’ for Slow Building in 1999. From there Konrad went on to record a number of tracks on 240 volts, including the "Nails" or alternatively titled "Heavy Metal Withdrawal" EP as well as the "Busting Down the Door with a Shotgun" EP. After moving to London and working with Ed Rush and Optical's prestigious D&B label Virus Recordings (which ironically coincided with his deter out of Drum and Bass), Konrad recorded the track ‘White Cigarettes’ for Swayzaks 240 Volts Compilation released that year.

Concurrently Konrad worked with March 21st of Circlesquare on the ‘Headgear Project’, releasing ‘Believers Goodbye’. This project culminated in collaboration with Swayzak for the track ‘In the Car Crash’ on the seminal album ‘Dirty Dancing’, released in 2002. From there he went on to work on Circlesquare’s album ‘Pre-Earthquake Anthems’ for London based Output Recordings. Likewise, Headgear's final joint production then was the Unkle remix of ‘In a State’.

In 2004 Konrad then formed Wagon Repair Recordings with Mathew Jonson, Graham Boothby and Jesse Fisk. He continued his wide panorama of sound on his first release on the label: ‘Draconia’, which enjoyed critical success internationally, followed by club hit 'medusa smile' , both top ranked in playlists of opnion leaders like ricardo villalobos, richie hawtin, steve bug, loco dice or tiga. This is only the beginning of things to come, as labelmanager, DJ, producer and performer Konrad Black will show very soon…
