Real Name:
Kenneth James Gibson
[a]pendics.shuffle is but one name for the multiple personas of Kenneth James Gibson, the multi-talented musician and composer behind Reverse Commuter, dubLoner, Kenneth James G., KJ Gibbs, Bal Cath, Eight Frozen Modules, Premature Wig and video artist Captain Primo. Having catalogued over 200 releases, KJG has explored and released music from minimalist and raw house to futurist dub, spaced-out electro to ambient solitudes, experimentalist techno to noisy psychedelic and chamber pop. He is also founder of Los Angeles based house and techno label Adjunct Records (distributed by Kompakt).

Over 20 years of production, KJG has collaborated with an eclectic crew of talented beatcrafters and producers, including Mr. C of The Shamen, Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto, Mark Bell a.k.a. Blakkat, Dilo as Cascabel Gentz, Mikael Stavöstrand as Men In Slippers, Carola Pisaturo as The Vegetables, Big Bully, Stewart Walker, and Konstantin Gabbro, co-founder of the pioneering Seattle label ORAC Records, as Whoa Buck.

KJG is a honed pilot of the remix console. KJG’s Reverse Commuter persona explores the warmth of acoustic production and deep house chants — the first EP and a full length album, entitled Exposure, will be released in early 2014. For the past few years, KJG has been collaborating in the studio with Brian McBride of the classical ambient duo Stars Of The Lid, creating an organic, band-driven project called Bell Gardens. The first LP, Full Sundown Assembly, was released in 2012 on the legendary UK anarcho-punk label Southern Records. In 2010, KJG released an acclaimed series of reworks with Damian Lazarus for his album Smoke The Monster Out (Club Versions) on seminal Berlin label Get Physical.

KJG is no stranger to the world’s premiere house and techno labels. A short list of appearances would include Trapez, Mo's Ferry, Culprit, Get Physical, Resopal, Leftroom, Ware, Lick My Deck, and Hallucination Ltd.

As the man behind Adjunct (founded in 2005), KJG curates exploratory forays into the stranger sides of house and techno. Adjunct has featured music from Bruno Pronsato, Franco Cinelli, Mikael Stavöstrand, Dilo, Mathias Schaffhäuser, Akiko Kiyama, Mr. C and John Tejada — to name a few names gracing over two dozen releases.

Has this guy ever released a bad track?!
His minimal and click'n'bleep techno is mind-blowing. Sometimes housey with "The Diligent Puzzle EP", sometimes more abstract with "Re-fried Monument", and always catchy. In contrary to a lot of other minimal techno artists, [a]pendics.shuffle never forget the beat and the bassline...
