Simon Marlin of the Shapeshifters

The Shafeshifters are made up of Simon Marlin (pictured on the left) and Max Reich. The pair met when Simon signed Max to the Down Boy record label that he worked for.

Musically, Simon found his enthusiasm for house on the dance floor in the late 80’s and early 90’s promoting nights and DJing, while Max got into production via a passion for techno honed whilst throwing illegal raves in his native city of Gothenburg.

Aside from 3 top 10 hit records ('Lola's Theme', 'Back To Basics' and 'Incredible'), they have remixed artists including George Michael, Faithless, Frankie Knuckles, Todd Terry, Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis and Moby.

Throughout 2009, The Shapeshifters have held DJ residencies for Defected @ Pacha (Ibiza – Summer 2009) while also being in demand around the world playing shows from Australia to Canada, Europe and South America to the Far East and everywhere else in between.
