Name: Chris Hoy
The Spoken Word
Nexus Media brainchild and a beast of the psychedelic movement we have come to love. Chris aka ShiFt is one of the few names in the scene still commanding the field as we speak. A down-to-earth individual who has the tendency to push the boundaries before its time, we have seen the evolution of many names following in his stead. Part of the groups Twisted System and Pitch Hikers (with SLuG) he is a household name which will always find his way to our ears and in turn to our hearts. If you get a chance, pop in at the Red Revenge Studios when he is around and if you wanna see what he has LIVE you can catch him at Easter Vortex and Transylvania New Dawn as well.

Chris: Don’t get caught in trend traps… Rather be unique. Be honest with yourself… You are your best critic. Don’t be precious about your creations, Delete stuff, Move on. Work hard… Put in the hours… But keep it fun. Respect others and Stay grounded.
5) What can we expect from sHiFt in the weeks to come?
Chris: I’m preparing a juicy psychedelic lunch time set for Transylania’s event this coming weekend (17th/18th). Its cool to play this slot as i get to jam some of my tracks i wouldn’t normally get to in my night gigs. Expect to hear new pitch hikers material among the shift and other neXus stuff.
Chris: Also appearing Easter Vortex which is one of my all time fave’s. Not certain of my slot yet but possibly closer to midnight on the Saturday, big power vibes for maximum dance-floor blasting!
