Shapeshifter's Soulstice Out Now!

Shapeshifter, heralded as a musical phenomenon for their groundbreaking live shows, incredible live instrumentation & organic approach to song writing, have just released their latest album, Soulstice.

Soulstice showcases Shapeshifter’s signature drum and bass style fused with jazz, hip-hop and electronica.

Soulstice features Shapeshifter’s own P Digsss in his stunning soul styles. Further vocal contributions come from some of Aotearoa’s top vocalists including Ladi6, KP (Sunshine Soundsystem) & Kye (Budspells). Other featured musicians include Isaac Aesili (Solaa, Opensouls) on trumpet and Warren Maxwell (Fat Freddy’s Drop, Little Bushmen) on flute. Shapeshifter recorded Soulstice in a home studio in Kaikoura and it has been stunningly mixed by Evan Short (Concord Dawn).

To celebrate their album release, Shapeshifter will tour throughout New Zealand this September. In cutting-edge Shapeshifter fashion, they will be creating a unique experience as they perform with leading orchestras in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Their last five tours have sold out, and this tour is set to follow suit.
