Shuffle was opening for Tricky (ex Massive Attack) in France last weekend.
The band received a warm welcome from the audience on Saturday in the mythic concert hall of the Trianon (Paris). The Shuffles have liven things up with a deep sound right before Mr.Tricky’s show !
A huge thank’s to all those who came, to Tricky, the Trianon’s team, Nous Prod, M&O Music, Syncope, Mathieu and François for the sound and lights, Alexia, Svenja, Alrik, Jean-Michel, Alan, Antoine, Marielle, …
On Sunday Shuffle was heading for north of France for the second show at the Grand Mix (Tourcoing).
After an expeditious soundcheck the band directly started a 40 minutes long show, with this time Tim Bickford as sound engineer. Thank you to all for the good mood and hats off to the team of the Grand Mix.

After a very well received concert at La Boule Noire with Jane getter Shuffle will come back to Paris and play, this time, at Le Trianon with Tricky (ex Massive Attack) and at Le Grand Mix (Tourcoing).
After moving to Berlin early this spring, he immediately started work on a new musical project called Skilled Mechanics. In his trademark husky West Country burr, the Bristol born musician, producer and vocalist explains where the name came from: “It’s from a documentary about espionage. There was an ex-C.I.A. agent on this program speaking about assassins who were sent abroad by the US to start revolutions and topple governments.

“With Upon The Hill, Shuffle is punching above it’s size. With influences from the second part of the 90’s american rock, this young and talented band explodes on this first album. A world-class revelation !” – Album of the month on United Rock Nation
“A new breath with Shuffle. What if progressive-metal’s revival came from Le Mans ?” – Le Parisien
“On Upon The Hill, each new track slaps you in the face. A total pleasure from the first till the last second” – Music Waves
« An album showing a real talent frankly, not metal, but frankly good ! » – Metal France
« Upon The Hill, the first album, is certainly a nice success. Keep a close watch on SHUFFLE, very close ! » – Metal Intégrale
« Coherent and strong compositions. There is talent in France. It’s high time to admit it and to get it where it really is » – Rock’n Reviews
« A strict and musical performance in the whole for this piece of art. 4/5 » – Tv Rock Life
« Their first album, « Upon The Hill », unleashed on March the 23, would let us think that it’s really up to this little gang from the west to have their name up in lights. » – Mag B-awave
“For a first album « Upon the Hill » is a complete success and deserves to be in your collection. In a competitive music style, Shuffle perfectly mixed rock music with different influences in a convincing way. I think we will hear a lot from these guys in the years to come if they maintain their level and this nice energy.” – Metal Sickness 16/20
“With this album, french néo-prog gets a three-star chef. English kitchen boys have watch out !” – Rock Made in France
“Such a good album for a young band is pretty outrageous. And even if everything is not perfect, there is no doubt that this album will find a place in the heart of any rock prog and atmospheric metal fan, and even more. Anyway, we are won over.” – Rock en Stock
“Even a person with hearing difficulties would be left speechless faced with this musical accuracy. Listen to it and feel this work of art, we’re giving our word that you’re going to love it ! ” – Sons of Metal
“Here’s a band which deserves more than a superficial glance. A nearly brutal force combined with the delicacy of their music will aim right for your heart like a missile. Absolutely recommandable.” 9/10 – Metal actus
“Upon the Hill takes you on a different journey with each new song” – Music Waves
