The Shapeshifters are Simon Marlin and Max Reich. Party people at heart, the pair met when simon signed max to the down boy record label that he was working for. Musically, simon found his enthusiasm for house on the dancefloor in the late 80’s and early 90’s, while max got into production via a passion for techno honed whilst throwing illegal raves in his native city of Gothenburg. Together, they make and play what can best be described as club music – underground house with elements of funk and soul and a darker, techy edge. 2008 brings a new home for them on the defected label, and they’re already loving the opportunity to produce music for clubbers rather than for mainstream radio and the charts.
This Saturday (11-21-08) their US tour brings them to Cielo NYC. Surely a night full of great music
