After selling out shows across New Zealand and Australia this summer, Shapeshifter NZ return to London for one special night.
Showcasing new tunes from their forthcoming LP alongside bonafide classics, this is your one chance to catch the stadium electronic wonderkids before they head back into the studio. With new collaborations recorded with the Upbeats in 2019, their own new material and another LP with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra on the way, Shapeshifter NZ remain one of the most diverse acts in dance music.
A unique combination of future soul, drum and bass, jazz, rock, dub and more, with euphoric synths and heavy guitars amidst pounding drums and soaring vocals - this is Shapeshifter NZ.
The players in Shapeshifter NZ 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 pummeling 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 NZ evolves, motivating dance floors worldwide and delivering audiences to the bleeding edge of musical possibility.
As at home in an amped club environment as they are playing to packed festival fields, Shapeshifter NZ is a truly adaptable unit. The five-strong lineup of PDigsss (vocals), Sam Trevethick (guitar/synths/sampler), Dan McGruer (keyboards/samples), Nick Robinson (bass/synths/MPC) and Darren Mathiassen (drums) have individually called Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne, Kingscliff, Berlin, Queenstown and, first and foremost, their original Christchurch stomping ground home, yet a chemistry refined over 12 years of playing together means they lock back into formation whenever they regroup.
A bunch of heavyweight fresh tracks are being road tested over the New Zealand summer at festivals around the country, with a new LP scheduled for release in the 4th quarter of 21019.
