17th of December at Control Club
Shifted, Pessimist, Chlorys, djfacmuzica

Facebook event

On our 3rd instalment at Club Control, we bridge drum and bass and techno by inviting Pessimist and Shifted as two artists who explore through their releases and label both sides of the genres. Local broadcasters Chlorys and djfacmuzica join the lineup for opening and closing the night.


Shifted [AVIAN]
Since the birth of the last decade, Shift­ed has been respon­si­ble for some of techno’s most excit­ing explo­rations. Col­lec­tive­ly, through his lat­est projects and his­to­ry in drum & bass, he has sub­con­scious­ly forged his own path with­in the field of mod­ern elec­tron­ic music. His unique yet uncom­pro­mis­ing mas­tery of sound and space, tex­ture and tonal­i­ties have posi­tioned him high in the ranks at the ever fer­tile junc­ture between Noise, Ambi­ent & con­tem­po­rary Techno.

As an artist, Shift­ed looks to the periph­ery of the genre, to the fringes of scenes — to the space as yet unex­plored through his own lens. Recon­tex­tu­al­is­ing and reaf­firm­ing influ­ence with rest­less aban­don, the British musician’s work up to this point serves as a tes­ta­ment to an artist with much ground yet to cover.


Pessimist (Ilian Tape, Blackest Ever Black)
Pessimist has been releasing music since 2010. Previously one third of the Bristol trio Ruffhouse, his constant development over the years has gained him a respected reputation throughout the electronic music industry. With firm roots in Drum & Bass & Jungle, Pessimist has not only made an impact within the Drum & Bass scene but also the wider electronic music community. With his critically acclaimed debut self titled album released on Blackest Ever Black turning many heads and garnering a clear non-conformist vision, Pessimist has carved out a stand-alone status and has influenced a whole new generation of experimental Drum & Bass producers and DJ’s.

Whilst running his own imprint Pessimist Productions and co-founding UVB-76 music, Pessimist has also released on labels such as Blackest Ever Black, Osiris Music, Ilian Tape & legendary Drum & Bass labels such as Cylon Recordings & Renegade Hardware.
