Container is the stripped-down, beat-oriented electronic project of Providence, RI's Ren Schofield, who somehow sculpts vicious 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, capable of both rushing the high-end dancefloors of Unsound, Donau and Berghain, and banging the below-stairs basements of Europe into submission.

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 and the Treatment 12 on the Morphine labela steaming new 12 in 2015 on Liberation Technologies as well as the thrillingly violent mauling of Four Tet's 'Kool FM'.

In 2016, his new EP 'Vegetation' was released on Powell's unabashedly singular Diagonal Records for a brut-iful marriage.
