Shapeshifter – Monarch
I’ve been a massive fan of Shapeshifter for many years now for their sharp production and innovation in the drum & bass. Their last album, The System Is A Vampire, the guys from New Zealand raised the bar with it’s live instrumentation, pounding beats and intelligent song writing.
Following on from the release, we got to see them perform live a few years ago during their European tour. That gig was simply just an amazing experience. If you haven’t already had the pleasure of hearing the album, make sure you check it out.
Forever hard working, the band have been busy touring and recording new material. Monarch was originally released late last year, with the video only just been finished. The video illustrates just how phenomenal the band are with the high octane visuals and sounds. P Digsss’ powerful, yet soulful vocals fit in harmony with the music. The video also manages to capture the raw energy generated from a Shapeshifter performance. These guys need to be seen to be believed. Seriously.
Here’s hoping that a new album is not too far off. Love these guys, but you’d never have guessed, right?
