Shifted @ Hangar Struga
Shifted @ Hangar Struga (28 July 2018)
The project Shifted began to take form in this realm of new possibility, an anonymous figure allowing shape amidst a new-found blank slate of sound. As much as this tabula rasa was cultivating a profound dexterity within the genres of techno, inherent know-how inevitably surfaced as nature does usually so influence nurture, and Brewer's compositional command (arguably honed throughout his seasoned years in the UK) came back to positively haunt him in no time. This reclamation of a past, worthy of upholding into the future, has since proven a positive sweep into the magnetism of his music as a whole. Since inception, Brewer's Shifted moniker has grown into a unique yet encompassing mastery of sound and space, texture and tonalities -- a pure spirit of experimentalism with a foundational functionality. From his debut on Luke Slater's Mote Evolver label, to Dominick Fernow's (Vatican Shadow) Bed Of Nails and to his recent recordings for his own smartly curated imprint, Avian (home to techno experiments from Alessandro Cortini's Skarn, Peder Mannerfelt, SHXCXCHCXSH, and more) Brewer's work radiates in its' capacity to meld to context and circumstance without artistic compromise, and at once to color outside purist lines, pushing boundaries and provoking thought in a call to progressive techno, electronic, noise and experimental music as a whole.
