Striving for a sound that fuses hip-shaking grooves with a raw but modern touch, British producer Rene Wise steps into the ABYSS Presents | Mix Series hot off the back of his debut performance at the Techno mecca that is Berghain.
At the young age of just 21, Andrew Shobeiri has amassed critical acclaim within the scene, with a broad range of reputable releases on the industries leading imprints such as Mote Evolver, Beard Man and ARTS.
Developing his sound since he was just 13 years old, he began by using free online tools to create basic arrangements for Drum & Bass and Dubstep tracks before progressing to Ableton and developing an ear for Techno music in his late teens.
Drawing inspiration from his personal experiences, Andrew’s immersion into Techno was accelerated by his first outing to see industry veteran Ben Klock for an unrelenting 6 hour set of mastery.
Alongside this experience and others like it are inspirations drawn from many other incredible artists such as Jeff Mills, DVS1 and Luke Slater – a producer who’s sound is so timeless that it has been seen as the forefront of Techno by Rene since his earlier years.

Rene likes to draw on existing energies and styles to create his own productions, taking inspiration from some of the US’s long standing producers such as Jay Denham, Fanon Flowers and DJ Slip.
The characteristics these artists are known for illustrate themselves through unique grooves that are both hypnotic and raw, something which Rene also embodies in his productions and DJ performances.
By drawing repeated influence from the shadows whilst constantly aiming towards the future, Rene continues to go from strength to strength across the board.
Releases to date include the aforementioned 12” EP on Mote Evolver as well as a digital EP from Mark Broom’s imprint Beardman back in early 2018.
Upcoming gigs see Rene play Berghain, Berlin; The Cause, London and Portugal in late December 2018. With even more in the pipeline for 2019, this young British producer has his sights on a strong future career within the industry.
