Unorthodox, unpredictable, unpolished. These are only a few words that insiders use to define Daniel Berends’ music. The man has been spending the last decade learning drum techniques and sounddesign essentials. As no other, he knew that he needed to learn the rules in order to break them.
The result: Shakèd (sjaa·ked). A name that stands for harmony between drifting house and obscure techno. Shakèd’s productions signify an exploration towards finding this harmony, thus justifying his own name constantly. Nowadays, his methods remain as big a mystery as the face behind his big head banging hair. Not only has breaking the rules become a tradition, it’s safe to say that Shakèd is slowly defining new ones.
