Shapeshifter *Live*

Shapeshifter *Live*

Fresh from tearing up Australia in a Riddim Wise style, Shapeshifter return to their homeland to present a quality show of high energy live dancefloor bizniz. The group celebrate their b.net NZ music award nominations, the release of the 'When I Return' video, and the return of P.Diggs from his European performances.
Shapeshifter's live sound is a journey into blazing jungle and drum'n'bass, washed with soulful grooves, hip hop and tuff dancehall. Using live, unsequenced instrumentation, they create a tight, progressive sound that has earned them a reputation as the 'most fearsome exponents of live d'n'b this side of the equator'.

Don't miss the group that has proven themselves time and time again to be on the cutting edge of original live performance.

“Shapeshifter have the ….well deserved reputation as the most fearsome live exponents
of drum’n’bass this side of the equator” Jim Pinckney, NZ Listener (Apr 3-9 2004).

With the tracks gaining support from heads in the scene including Andy C, Bailey, BC UK, Pendulum, Friction, Dom & Teebee. Following up from this release are 12"s scheduled for Subtronix, Hostile, Habit and BC UK's new side label Vengeance!!! Join the boys as they celebrate their BC presents release due late September and for their last Wellington gig before they take off on tour to smash Australian dancefloors.

Bass Frontiers original residents and Wellyz Most Dangerous Ddog and Sal will be running there trademark back2back styles. After years of playing together they have developed a style that compliments each other perfectly.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
