SO SHIFTY (Mad Decent/Top Billin)
Seemingly appearing out of nowhere (but actually hailing from Hamburg, Germany), the production and DJ duo known as So Shifty has made a ridiculously strong impression in an amazingly short period of time.
Quoted as “the best new thing in 2009″ on the infamous club music blog, Discobelle, So Shifty established themselves this summer with a remix of The Very Best’s “Warm Heart Of Africa” that Radioclit selected as “the very best” of about 35 different remixes of the track.
After the success of this genre-bending remix, So Shifty was instantly commissioned to do remix work for a couple of Island/Universal artists while continuing to pump out critically-acclaimed unofficial remix work as well.
Through their long-time connections with the Jamaican Dancehall scene, they reached out to Dancehall’s three hottest female artists–Natalie Storm, Timberlee and Tifa (aka TNT)–along with their old friends from Ward 21 on board to round out the three original songs on their fantastic debut EP.
Additionally, Emynd himself makes an appearance on the EP with a violent New Orleans Bounce Remix of “Wine Her Rump” while recent Crossfaded Bacon signee „Them Jeans“ of „Dim Mak fame“ also provides his own interpretations of the So Shifty original.
So Shifty even secured a remix from French House and Tropical hotshot Douster for a compelling remix that takes.
With bigwigs like Sinden of Kiss FM (host of the UK’s most renowned club music radio show) showing support from day one as well as the support of some of the world’s biggest DJs from Diplo to Dre Skull.
