Real Name:
Shem McCauley
Well-known UK production team which was responsible for hits like 'Your Face' and 'Scared' which became anthems of the mid-90's progressive house/trance scene.
Later Shem McCauley went solo and continued work under the 'Slacker' guise with multiple tracks being released on his Jukebox In The Sky label.

Sadly, Shem put an end to his own life in Bangkok, Thailand over the weekend of 21st/22nd January 2012.

Shem was a man as creative as the shirts he wore. He was truly Streets Ahead. A great DJ and talented producer who sadly succumbed to the inner demons of depression.

A true visionary of electronic music in the late 90's. Productions that stand out with originality and quality. A true forgotten genius of the edm scene RIP Shem

If there was one thing I could say about Shem's music is that it truly stood out. Of all the producers/artist out there when Slacker released a track I didn't know what to expect but that's where his skill as an artist resided in. I meet him once at Club Ambersands, New Orleans, Louisiana where he played skillful set. We talked about 20 minutes and he was sincere and thanked me for his support. I even brought my 12 vinyl of Psychout to sign. Much respects for an artist who didn't follow the usual road in music.

RIP slacker! he was a master, and it showed through in his productions. TRUE electronic music and pure trance.

I don't think i've heard one Slacker tune/remix that was short of brilliant. "Fusion" and "Looky Thing" are just incredible. An album would be nice.....
