To understand Guy Brewer’s creative output is perhaps more of a perceptive outlook onto the surroundings that have harnessed and fertilized such a mutable yield – a progressive change that is at all times moving forward in its’ impulsivity and temperament.
After the dissolution of his esteemed group Commix, Brewer uprooted his UK drum n bass beginnings and transplanted himself to Berlin, where reinvention and transformation is of second nature to its’ inhabitants that restlessly seek and speak through artistic language.
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. With his debut on Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver label, to Dominick Fernow’s (Vatican Shadow) Bed Of Nails as well as 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 has birthed numerous other projects, notably the techno-drone outfit Covered In Sand (with releases on Avian’s sister label, Mira, Hospital Productions and more) and the doomy soundtrack wielding of Alexander Lewis (home on Blackest Ever Black, Vereker’s Endagered Species). Shifted is a rebel artist, treading new territories with a fascination and fixation to craft brilliance with a new noise.
