Shapeshifter 25 Years

No longer available

Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall


Since forming in Christchurch in 1999, Shapeshifter's unique blend of heavy Pacific-soul, drum and bass, and electronica has become integral to New Zealand's music scene. Globally renowned, their seamless genre fusion and electrifying performances set them apart as pioneers.

Record-breaking New Zealand tours, scene-setting appearances at festivals like Glastonbury, The Big Chill, Big Day Out and Parklife, sold-out performances across Europe, worlds-colliding collaborations with Symphony Orchestras, multiple music awards, four EPs and five LPs — three with platinum sales — and an army of fans who return to relive the experience time and time again: the towering achievements of Shapeshifter, the future-shocked soul outfit who hail from Christchurch New Zealand, were built by a living, breathing band of musicians, with all the form-changing sonic possibilities live instrumentation offers.

The players in Shapeshifter 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 pummelling 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 evolves, motivating dance floors worldwide and delivering audiences to the bleeding edge of musical possibility
