Shapeshifter are back, armed with a brand new album, DELTA!
Fri 16th August – Billboards
Support from The Operatives….
Shapeshifter by name and by nature, this elemental, electronic soul outfit has morphed time and time again with seismic shifts in genre – from depth-charge bass music, elastic electronic textures and barrelling breakbeats to bedrocks of soul, jazz and rave that ground their experimentation. But never has the well-earned name been more apt than on album number five, Delta, their most fearless release yet.
The towering achievements of Christchurch’s Shapeshifter can’t be understated – record-breaking New Zealand tours, scene-setting appearances at festivals like Glastonbury, The Big Chill, Big Day Out and Parklife, sold-out performances across Europe, worlds-colliding collaborations with symphony orchestras, multiple music awards, four EPs and five LPs – three with platinum sales – and an army of fans who return to relive the experience time and time again.
The players in Shapeshifter have created their very own heavy soul, a stadium-sized sound which adds layers of drum & bass, jazz, funk, rock and electronica to solid bass culture foundations, capable of morphing from rolling drum & bass to pummelling guitar-driven jams to horizon-shifting electronic soundscapes. This genre-defying amalgamation of influences continues to draw from new source material and inspiration as Shapeshifter evolves, motivating dancefloors worldwide and delivering audiences to the bleeding edge of musical possibility.
