2008 three CD set, the Shapeshifters' installment in the Defected label's popular in the House series. The Shapeshifters know a thing or two about rocking the dancefloor. As globetrotting DJs, studio craftsmen, musical connoisseurs and all-round party people, the London-based duo of Simon Marlin and Max Reich are at the top of their game as this set superbly illustrates. Disc One is an intriguing blend of styles with soulful artists like Grant Nelson and John Julius Knight joining the European new breed of electronic producers like Mike Monday and Nic Fanciulli's Skylark project. Disc Two is an uplifting array of club music combining 2008 reworkings of classics like 'Hideaway', 'Bad Habit' and 'I'll House You' with the freshest new house cuts from the likes of Dirty South, Axwell, Bob Sinclair, Fedde le Grand and Funkerman. On Disc Three, the Shapeshifters indulge US with a selection of music that has influenced and inspired them. Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Hall & Oates and Tears for Fears are just a few of the artists included and they come up trumps with songs to savor that reach deep into Dance music's rich heritage. Defected.
