Jack Sheets, previously known as Shapeshifter and currently Mister Shifter, has been a notable figure in underground electronic music for nearly two decades.
As a burgeoning DJ in the Midwest United States during the 1990’s, the Ohio-native took advantage of his nearby surroundings of Chicago, Detroit, and Columbus by making warehouse raves a weekly ritual. A steady diet of techno, house, and drum & bass helped Jack keep an open mind musically, as he was never one to discriminate based on genre.
After years of making waves as a drum & bass DJ, Jack co-founded the production duo Random Movement with close friend Mike Richards in 2001. Random Movement quickly rose to prominence with releases on some of the biggest labels in the industry, including Breakbeat Science, Innerground Records, Bassbin, and Timeless Recordings. Their breakthrough single “Stars In The Dark” on Ireland’s Bassbin Records shot the duo into the international spotlight and remains a defining moment. Eventually Mike Richards relocated to Florida, and Jack moved on from the partnership. They remain close friends, and occasionally DJ together in reunion tag-team set performances.
In 2014, Jack embarked on a solo drum & bass production venture as Mister Shifter, with a debut release on Fanu’s Lightless Recordings based out of Finland. With techno & house side-projects as Jackie Boy, Jack continues to not be held down to one particular genre.
Known for his eclectic taste, technical skill, and knack for moving dance floors, he continues to be a crowd favorite while showcasing tracks across a vast array of influences, tempos & timelines.
