Shifted has long ago proven himself as someone who is a master craftsman in the studio. He moves ever further way from the grey d&b, then bulky techno he started out with here on new album Constant Blue Light. This is his fourth full length, though first his own Avian label, and it is all about exploring minimal sound design. There are often not even any beats or pulses to tether these tracks or propel them forwards - instead you're left to ride the drawn out synths, tortured dories and caustic pads that leave eerie spaces in their wake. It is a futuristic work that is packed with details which demand headphone listening.
