Having previously linked up for a New Zealand summer tour in 2013/14, Opiuo and Shapeshifter have announced that they will be coming together again for their massive Slug A Bug EP (out now). Their powers combined, the EP is a bass odyssey, with Shapeshifter, one of the world's best drum n bass acts teaming up with the multihued beatmaking talents of Opiuo, it was bound to be magic.
The title track, 'Slug A Bug' is a guitar heavy, glitchy delight, with the mashing together of signature sounds of both Opiuo and Shapeshifter. Featuring vocals from PDigsss, the track is a genre bending experiment by the two producers - it's rock while funkadelic, it's glitch while being unlike anything else.
The B-Side 'Warehouse Be Like' switches everything up, a synth heavy party starter true to its name. Hyperactive and relentless if you're in need of a hump day pick me up, this track is sure to do the trick.
Whether The Opiuo Band will add this to their repertoire is yet to be seen, but no doubt they'll be bringing the same full fledged energy to the mansion on New Years Day.
