Displacer is the solo electronic project of Toronto, Ontario-based musician Michael Morton. He had his start on Mute Records’ Pre-Set New Electronic Music (2003). Selected from the best demos received during that year, the track “Deep” garnished the attention of Paris, France-based M-Tronic Records, on which he released 3 CDs. In 2008 he signed to Chicago, USA label Tympanik Audio and released 3 more albums; The Witching Hour, X Was Never Like This… & Night Gallery.
