Shape Shifters - Adopted By Aliens


As Jack Devo has upped some of the older Shape Shifters stuff, I wanna show you the Shifters album that build a bridge between the stuff before and after the year 2000. This one was released on the holy record label Celestial Recordings which was run by Daddy Kev and DJ Hive. Since 2001 it is not existent anymore, I think it is because DJ Hive went his own path by focusing on Drum'n'Bass music. It is a pity, Celestial Recordings threw in really dope releases like this one.
I would definitely date this work after the Know Future album because of the track "Brainfish Reanimated" and "Beetleborg" which are like re-makes with a better mastering. By comparing the older versions with the new ones it looks like the ones from the Know Future album were demos. But there are also tracks from the Planet Of The Shapes album, the Triple Threat EP and the 2012 EP. This chaos continues with the weirdness of the music itself which isn't meant in a negative way. No, it will catch your attention because it goes very deep with its trippy beats.

I have a question for you: If "Planet of the Shapes" is #1 in a seven-second delay portrait of earth from mars, and "know future" is #2, and "Adopted by Aliens" is #4, then what is #3??

I don't know which one #3 exactly is or if it exists! But my CD says Adopted by Aliens is #4 in a 4 part series know as"..." and than:
Also be sure to check out "Mogtorr The Mighty Lover" Animated Cartoon featuring the Shapeshifters. Probably its this cartoon, probably #3 doesn't really exist & the Shapshifters wanted to confuse the fans.
