Shackleton is set to collaborate on a soundtrack project inspired by two Devonshire railway journeys.
Shackleton’s music has always been more like sonic art than soundsystem fare. Although steeped in the wisdom of bass tracks such as ‘Hamas Rule’ were designed to seep in through every pore.
Having led the Skull Disco imprint, Shackleton is now based in Berlin. However the producer is set to return to the UK shortly for a soundtrack project inspired by two Devonshire railway journeys.
Yes, you read that correctly: ‘Devonshire railway journeys’.
The producer recently completed a FabricLive mix, and is now set to focus on a new soundtrack project. Working in collaboration with Vengeance Tenfold, the pair have been commissioned by Sonic Journeys – a sounduk initiative working on “aural landscapes that connect the creator, listener and music with the world around us.”
In a blurb, sounduk describe the concept as: “Sonic Journeys commissions artists to create new works in response to specific stretches of landscape that inspire them on various journeys taken by foot, train and other modes of transport in rural and urban locations.”
“These works will then be recorded and available for download for listeners to experience the music as they pass through the same landscape that has inspired it. A free map will be available for download that gives the exact route for the listener to experience each Sonic Journey using their own personal mp3 player and headphones.”

Shackleton and Vengeance are set to go on a “sonic journey” starting on April 8th and finishing on August 31st. The route takes them through South Devon on the First Great Western mainline (starting at Dawlish Warren Railway Station), and North Devon on the Tarka line (starting at Portsmouth Arms Railway Station).
