Shifted is a producer with many faces. In just a few years since his first release on Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver imprint, the UK artist successfully managed to develop his own distinctive voice within the constantly evolving techno genre. Soon after his 2011 debut he set up the Avian imprint together with fellow UK producer Ventress – an outlet bringing focus to a more stripped back and textured side of British techno. Releases on Sigha’s Our Circula Sound imprint and the Frozen Border sub-label Naked Index soon followed, as well as a one-off self-released EP for his more dance floor focused project Pacific Blue.
2014 saw Shifted continuing to develop these many strands of his musical output, while the multiple labels under his stewardship continue to give an outlet to talent from across the duskier side of the electronic music spectrum.
