How did it all begin? How did you meet, what gave you the idea to work together as a duo and what was it that inspired the name The Shapeshifters?
Simon and I met in Gothenburg (Sweden) back in 1996. He was DJing at a party and we were introduced through a mutual friend. Simon was working at a small independent label in London and was looking for new material and I gave him a cassette with the music I was doing at the time. We've been working together ever since but The Shapeshifters wasn't formed until late 2003 with our first release Lola's Theme, which initially came out our label Nocturnal Groove. There's a really cool character called Shapeshifter in the series Star Trek that we both really like, and when you're dancing you're shifting shapes too, so we thought that the Shapeshifters will be a great name.
You will be celebrating 10 years when you come to India on your tour. Is this where you saw yourself 10 years ago? Where do you see yourselves 5 or 10 years from now?
We never knew when we started The Shapeshifters 10 years ago that it was going to so successful; we've enjoined every moment and it's been a great journey. We'll hopefully be doing the very same for the next 10 years too.
Has your music style changed in the last 10 years? If so, how?
Yes, our music including the whole dance scene is constantly changing in order for the music to be fresh and interesting, but our roots will always be House music.
