Shapeshifter at Whangamata this New Years Eve

Aotearoa electronica originators Shapeshifter are getting the gang back together with long-time tourmates The Upbeats & MC TIKI with Sunshine Sound System this summer.


Known for their explosive fusion of dub, electronica, drum ‘n’ bass, soul and stadium rock, Shapeshifter have spent most of 2019 deep in studio-mode, working on a new album for 2020. Fans can expect a taste of this fresh material this season!


The Upbeats have been pioneering drum ‘n’ bass since the early 2000s, earning their place in the upper-echelons of dance music with high-profile collabs and major festival appearances across the globe. With MC Tiki on the mic, an electric and unifying experience is a given.


Certified party starters Sunshine Sound System (AKA DJ Downtown Brown and MC KP) are famed masters of ceremonies, keeping the vibe alive with their ever-morphing sets of dancehall, reggae and hip hop.


This Tuesday, New Years Eve will see the boys ringing it in at Joe’s Farm, a brand-new festival site near Whangamata. With overnight camping and free shuttle bus services available, this will be a party to remember – with fierce hip hop talent JessB and electro-pop production wizzkids SACHI also on the bill.


JessB is a beacon in the NZ hip-hop scene, shaking up the status quo with her fearless flow and empowering attitude. Since gaining the ears of nation as the first woman to perform on Red Bull’s 64 Bars in 2017, JessB has earned her reputation as an incomparable MC with EPs “Bloom” and “New Views”.


With co-signs from the likes of Diplo, Lorde, Zane Lowe and Vince Staples, SACHI have made their mark on a global scale with their youthful brand of infectious feel-good dance pop. SACHI’s 2019 debut album “Nights With Ruby” features rising international artists like E^ST and CXLOE.
