Copenhagen’s Shield has become a key artist in the beats scene, fusing his long history as a bass music producer, with a background as a classical percussionist. His signature sound always puts a lot of emphasis on drums and textures – often recorded by himself in his studio.
While completing his Masters Degree in percussion at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, his track ‘Horrormovie’ caught the attention of Ivy Lab, who after supporting it on their Rinse FM Critical Sound show, subsequently signed him to their 20/20 LDN imprint. The ‘My Flava’ EP, his debut release with the label, received massive support by scene leaders such as Ivy Lab, Noisia, Alix Perez, Sub Focus, DJ Craze and Tipper.
