BY Danae Effern | 14-Dec-2017
After a winter cooking up new treats for their fans, as well as festival appearances in Europe and Canada, Shapeshifter are returning to Australia for 2 special shows this February. #shapeshifterlivenz @shapeshifterlivenz
The lads will be at peak match fitness after powering their way across the New Zealand festival circuit in December and January, bringing a fresh new show but as always covering the full spectrum of music, from soaring soul, high octane rock, future shock electronica to pulsating jungle music and everything in between.
With lights and visuals that bedazzle and sonics that will vibrate every fiber of your being, every Shapeshifter show raises the bar of what live music can be.
With a pedigree that includes the Big Day Out, Glastonbury, The Big Chill, Parklife, Hospitality in the Dock, as well as some of the most memorable events New Zealand has witnessed, Shapeshifter are renowned for delivering unforgettable performances and are rightly known as New Zealand’s premiere live electronic act.
Joining them in both Sydney and Melbourne will be UK legend Fracture, who’s innovative use of broken beats have seen him appear on leading labels including Exit and Metalheadz as well as his own Astrophonica imprint. Always pushing the envelope of forward looking bass music his DJ set will be dubplate spotters delight.
Also crossing the ditch in support are the notorious Sunshine Sound System, renowned for warming things up nice for some of New Zealand’s biggest acts and keeping an evening simmering to perfection.
