Info:
Still feeling giddy about the fantastic Short Circuit Festival in London two weeks ago, we are looking forward to the next great announcement from Mute. So there will be parties with live sets by S.C.U.M., Beth Jeans Houghton and Big Deal in Amsterdam (27th June), Berlin (28th June) and Paris (29th June).

S.C.U.M., the band consisting of Thomas Cohen and Sam Kilcoyne (the son of Add (N) TO (X)’s Barry 7 … ) amongst others, sounds like a contemporary version of Joy Division plus the poppy feeling of Hurts all put together in a bottle.

Wire Magazin wrote “really cool piece of neu-volk invention” about Beth Jeans Houghton. Weird and poppy Folk like you haven’t heard before. But is Folk really the right term for that nice stuff? Not sure.

Big Deal is a cool American/English guitar duo with beautiful songwriting and harmonies.

Maike Rosa Vogel, signed by Mute Song, will open the night with tracks from her new album “Unvollkommen”.

And additionally some Mute DJs who wanna stay anonymous for now will be spinning records – perhaps announced later ;-).

The debut albums of S.C.U.M., Beth Jeans Houghton and Big Deal will be available on Mute later this year. The new album “Unvollkommen” by Maike Rosa Vogel has been released in April.

Info :
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!

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.
