- The techno artist explains that all material, experimental or otherwise, will now land on Avian.
Shifted has announced the closure of Mira, a sublabel of his more well-known Avian imprint.
Mira had been operating since 2012. It was launched as an outlet for experimental sounds that wouldn't fit on the more DJ-focused Avian, releasing dark and droning material from producers like Bleaching Agent, Prostitutes and Oliver Ho, along with work from Shifted himself (under the alias Covered In Sand). Ten records had been released on the label so far. In a brief statement posted to Facebook yesterday, Shifted explains: "The direction that Avian has taken now seems to blend quite seamlessly with what Mira was meant to represent. So in future more experimental titles will also come via Avian alongside our regular output."
In the Facebook post, Shifted also reveals that the next three Avian releases will come from Litüus, 400ppm and Pris.
