The Shifting Spheres bandcamp features a fantastic written passage that details all the wonderful artists & music on offer:

"Opening up proceedings, Not Bad For a Girl’s DaiSU combines dubby textures with creative sampling methods in ‘Buckwild.' Then DJ Luz’s ‘Baby in the 90’s’ is a nod towards true rave nostalgia, peppered with bubbling synths and acid lines. The moody vocals of ‘1d1t’ sit above haunting synth melodies and a punchy, distorted kick in Jazzi Bobbi’s R’n’B creation. Next Lauryn employs deep stabs to produce ‘Forgiveness’, a leftfield techno track steered by cool, guiding words. Liverpool’s LUNA drops the energy in ‘VENTUS’ over a delicious bass groove and stimulating breakbeat.Label co-founder Mystique, takes over with rolling bongo patterns, a bouncing melody and mystical synths ‘Deep Knows No One’ until PETALSINSOUND merges high energy drums with a thumping sub bass line to take the listener on an trance-like journey in ‘Sunlight’. Exuding a retro quality with 8-bit sounds and bright and colourful keys, Pussy Stamina’s ‘We’re Watching You’ gives way to the closing track, where acidic rhythms float above delicate alien-like melodies and a reverberating bass in SCAPA’s ‘Binary’.
