Since their inception 15 years ago, electronic music outfit Shapeshifter have built their live reputation on the back of tours that have criss-crossed New Zealand and further afield.

On the 9th April this year, the band set off on their 12th Northern Hemisphere excursion, a 12-date run of shows that saw them play venues from Prague to Vancouver. While they were away, Shapeshifter’s guitarist, keyboardist and producer Sam Trevethick pulled double duties, playing musician and radio producer as he documented their travels.
