  • The Shapeshifters break in the house image
  • The Shapeshifters have been tapped by Defected for the label's newest In the House compilation. Bringing their trademark house sound with a splash of soul and funk to the proceedings, the duo offer up two mix CDs along with a third disc that collects "inspirations." While the first two discs predictably largely offer up the sound of the Shapeshifters now, the opening of disc two is a special one: Two mixes of the duo's new rework of Orbital's "Chime" bring in the set, bringing back flashes of acid house's glory days. That classics theme continues on the third disc with tunes from Al Green, Patrice Rushen and more. A noticeable absence, though? Johnny Taylor's "What About My Love?" It seems EMI wasn't in the frame of mind to let the boys license the tune that became the basis for the Shapeshifters' own "Lola's Theme." Tracklist CD1 01.
