Podcast 370: Shifted

Over the past few years, Shifted (a.k.a. Guy Brewer) has quickly built a following on the back of two albums and an impressive series of 12"s, most of which showcase a bleak and ominous strain of richly textured techno. Though the Berlin-based producer has worked with esteemed imprints such as Sigha's Our Circula Sound, Dominick Fernow's Bed of Nails, and Luke Slater's Mote-Evolver, his new double EP, Arrangements in Monochrome, is slated to arrive next week on Avian, the excellent label Brewer heads up alongside fellow UK producer Ventress. His work doesn't stop there, either, as Brewer has also produced under the aliases Relay, Covered in Sand, Alexander Lewis, delete_everything, and Pacific Blue, and occasionally teams up with Sigha in the collaborative A Model Authority project, amongst other endeavors. Throughout all of this, his output has occasionally popped up on XLR8R, but with the new Shifted record set to drop, we figured it was finally time to put Brewer properly in the spotlight via the XLR8R podcast series.

Download: Deft "The Night Time"

First Listen

One could certainly not accuse Berlin's Project: Mooncircle imprint of taking it easy in 2014. Having added records to its catalog this year from the likes of Submerse, Memoosh (a.k.a. Memotone and Soosh), and a collaborative EP from My Panda Shall Fly & Mau'lin, among a number of other releases, the label has certainly packed in a lot of music over the past 11 months. And still, Project: Mooncircle has a few tricks left of its sleeve, with prolific UK producer Deft set to return to the label next week with the Blue Jasmine EP. Serving as the upcoming record's closing cut, "The Night Time" is an appropriately titled production, one which folds a melancholy procession of hazy, pumping chords and long-winded bass notes in with steady layers of clattering percussion. Out on December 2, the rest of Deft's Blue Jasmine EP can be previewed after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Turbojazz "DAT Soul (Parker Madicine Point of View Version)"

First Listen

Today, the Milan-based CT-HI imprint issues its third release, a four-track collection of soul-lined productions from the label's stable of artists. Included on the Contemporary Theories III EP is Turbojazz's "DAT Soul," a jazzy, loose-shuffling house tune, which here receives a remix treatment from fellow CT-HI affiliate Parker Madicine. On his rework, the Italian producer dials back the original tune's more soaring elements, instead focusing on the track's lopsided bassline and gritty rhythmic textures, which serve as the base to the low-swung remix's five-plus-minute run. Out now, the Contemporary Theories III EP can be streamed in full after the jump.  Read more »
