Since the birth of the last decade Shifted has been responsible for some of techno’s most exciting explorations. Collectively, through his latest projects and history in drum & bass, he has subconsciously forged his own path within the field of modern electronic music. His unique yet uncompromising mastery of sound and space, texture and tonalities have positioned him high in the ranks at the ever fertile juncture between Noise, Ambient & contemporary Techno. As an artist, Shifted looks to the periphery of genre, to the fringes of scenes - to the space as yet unexplored through his own lens. Recontextualising and reaffirming influence with restless abandon, the British musician’s work up to this point serves as a testament to an artist with much ground yet to cover. As a DJ, careful preparation, patience and presence of mind have paid dividends over the years. Sets are razor-sharp, streamlined affairs that eke out the same palpable tension found in the artist’s production work. As comfortable on larger stages as he is in intimate environments, Shifted’s selection process places the focus on texture and rich tonal finish, prioritising continuity in form and material low end to generate powerful, extended performances that eschew breaks in momentum in favour of an explicitly hypnotic dynamism.
