Kenneth James Gibson is a man of many personas, including [a]pendics.shuffle. Keeping up with him can be a time consuming, yet rewarding venture into sound. As soon as you think you know him and can grasp what's going on, he puts on yet another mask and becomes something else. Always a surprise and never a let down, he gives us what we want but don't expect. In 1997, Ken moved from Austin Texas to the big city of Los Angeles, California. After releasing a few records as Eight Frozen Modules on various labels such as Trance Syndicate and City Slang, he gave up the 4 track and guitar for a desktop computer and software. While taking a few years off from releasing music, he learned how to create a new world in the land of computers. After 3 years of not leaving his padded studio cell, he resurfaced with the 2001 Eight Frozen Modules CD "Random Activities and Broken Sunsets", a mix of glitched out electro, techno, and idm for the LA label, Phthalo. Since then, he has also released music under the names [a]pendics.shuffle, The Premature Wig, dubLoner, Electronic Music Composer, Reverse Commuter, Bal Cath, Hiss and Buzz (with Jack Dangers), and most recently as Kenneth James G., and KJ Gibbs for labels such as Mo's Ferry Productions, Adjunct, Resopal, Orac, Mineral, Tigerbeat 6, Proptronix, and Mille Plateaux ... just to name a very few. Currently Ken is living in Echo Park California and producing a ton of music. He has new releases about to drop on Friends Of Tommorow, Floppy Funk, Sunset Diskos/ Mitek, Mo's Ferry Productions, Hallucination Limited, Adjunct, Persistancebit, Orac and more. He has also just started his own label with Orac co-founder Konstantin Gabbro, called Adjunct. With Adjunct they are releasing what they call "computer funk", their own special brand of funky, minimal, avant-garde techno. The first few releases have been killer. We recently caught [a]pendics.shuffle at a DEMF after-after-party thrown by none other than Seth Troxler and Ryan Crosson. This was hands down the party of the weekend, and Ken's live set was the highlight of the whole weekend for us. His productions are great, but the live set is completely over the top, and must be experienced to be believed.
