CASE STUDY: Gordon Bruce
Since graduating from UMT Gordon has has kept himself busy being 1/5 of Newcastle's Shift-Static who are known for their masterful blend of the electronic with the human - creating glitchy, unsettling sonic canvases - with their latest EP mixed and mastered by UMT tutor Danny Linton.
