Freshly snapped up by pioneering UK label Hospital Records, Kiwi d 'n' b aces Shapeshifter* bring their blistering live show back to Edinburgh's Bongo Club with what's sure to be another sell-out show, following last year's hit performance. With a blissed out, South Pacific sound on record (which recalls early LTJ Bukem/Good Looking Records) and then a fully-fledged killer live act that more closely resembles festival headliners such as Kosheen and Pendulum, Shapeshifter really are a force to be reckoned with!
With new album The System Is A Vampire due out on Hospital Records in October, the world is Shapeshifter's oyster right now.
Support from Hobbes (Trouble DJs).
* N.B. Please note, following a wrangle between Hospital Records and Defected over legal rights to the name of this act, they are being billed for these dates as New Zealand Shapeshifter. We obviously also want to avoid any potential confusion with British DJ & studio production, house outfit The Shapeshifters.
