Shifted / SNTS / Aurora Halal
■ SHIFTED ■ 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 his recent recordings for his own smartly curated imprint Avian, 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.
■ SNTS ■ An anonymous producer with a gritty, heads-down style of techno and a focus on vinyl, SNTS first surfaced in late 2012. He's been behind two record trilogies, Chapters and Scenes, issued through his self-titled label, and also earned appearances on Horizontal Ground and Edit Select Records.
■ AURORA HALAL ■ Aurora Halal is a producer, DJ and creator of Brooklyn’s Mutual Dreaming party series & the Sustain-Release festival. Shadowy and psychedelic, her hardware live & DJ sets have a hazy sensuality and metallic dance floor intensity that's at turns playful, dark, acidic, hard, euphoric and emotionally vulnerable. In all her projects, she treats dance music as an arena for transformation and underground as the final destination.
