Dance music act Shapeshifters has signed to Sanctuary Group's artist management division for worldwide representation.

The duo will be managed by Mitch Clark, with support from London-based Sanctuary Artist Management's international management operations.

Comprising producers Simon Marlin and Max Reich, Shapeshifters scored one of Britain's biggest breakthrough dance tracks in 2004 with their debut single "Lola's Theme." The track topped the U.K. singles chart and was nominated for the best British single category at the 2005 Brit Awards. Their follow-up single "Back to Basics" entered the U.K. top 10 in March.

Shapeshifters are signed to their own label Nocturnal Groove and licensed to EMI imprint Positiva for the U.K. and Europe. A debut album is expected to be issued in late September 2005.

As club DJs, Marlin and Reich are booked to perform a string of upcoming international dates, including sets at Mach 1 club in Nuremberg, Germany this Saturday (June 18) and a summer residency at the Amnesia club in Ibiza.

Sanctuary Artist Management's stable of clients includes Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, Jane's Addiction, Manic Street Preachers, Slipknot and Groove Armada.
