shelbono "barracuda” del monte ....real name (sheldon
sidney LeRock) was born in a desolate lumber/mining town in the
northern regions of Ontario, Canada. Shelbono started composing
music while living in Windsor (near Detroit), a city known as the
mecca for techno, no!...(is it?).

In 2003, 15 new songs have been sent to some friends so that they
rework them, the result is the double CD "newfound urban calm".
CD1 contains Pan/tone's compositions, showing many unique features
to his sound. Ranging from Minimal Techno to punchy techno+rock
(Rockno), a sound that rocks dancefloors and complements the whiskey
in hand idea. However pan/tone's approach is more of a broader
musical appeal. Pan/tone's theory is to focus on creating a "Techno"
sound that will hopefully branch away from the norm.

Losoul, Si-cut.db, Falko Brockseiper & Mia / SubStatic, Andy
Vaz, Frank Martiniq, Rene Braithwarth, Duplex 100, Adam Marshall,
