There are multiple artists using the name Shaded. 1. 2012 proved to be a big year for Skyler Taugher, as it produced the fork in the road that resulted in the creation of his new solo moniker, SHADED. With his previous success with partner Shoddy Lynn as the duo SHDWPLAY, Skyler's decision to go solo ultimately came from his desire for more creative and individual freedom. As SHDWPLAY, the duo released four blistering EPs on Dubfire's SCI+TEC Digital Audio Imprint, quickly becoming well-regarded staples in techno ranks around the world.
