With his ‘Control EP’ Shifted’s newest production brings no further clues as to the identity of this highly-regarded yet anonymous producer. Having established an relationship with Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver
imprint, Shifted has been releasing some of the freshest and highly acclaimed techno tracks at the moment. What ‘Control’ does bring, however, is an impressive follow-up release to the ‘Drained EP’ released on Mote-Evolver earlier this year.
Composed of four minimalist yet thumping tracks, Shifted’s Control release evokes an attitude towards techno that is raw and deep while also engaging. Beginning with ‘Control’, the EP starts out energetically with a tribal rhythm that mixes in with spaced-out effects and plenty of grooving underlying bass. ‘Structure’, takes a bassheavy turn that carries with it an intense and ominous feel throughout. It moves forward rapidly with pulsing basslines that carry a distinct and focused intensity.
The B-side, starting with ‘Resurface’, pounds hard and mixes in atmospheric tones as it constantly builds momentum while reaching its climax. ‘Drifting Over’ balances a deep mysterious driving attitude with a whole range of low sonic frequencies fine-tuned specifically for their resonance on any dance floor’s sound system.
