SHIBA SAN

France

 

After a 15-year career in the French hip-hop scene, Shiba San became fascinated with the sounds of Chicago house, inspiring him to create his own productions, infusing his hip-hop influence with the soul of house music. Then came ‘Okay’, the track that “changed the way we listened to music” (Dancing Astronaut) and became the anthem of 2014. But Shiba San is far from a one-hit wonder, following up “Okay” with the award-winning track “Burn Like Fire” (Best Underground Track 2015 IDMA/WMC). With releases out on labels known and loved for their irresistible tunes like Dirtybird and Suara, as well as his own imprint Basement Leak, he’s since seen his career launch off far and beyond the city limits of Paris. Staying quiet on the public front, Shiba San remains a curious enigma to his international fan base, allowing the music to do the talking for him. In between releases and time spent concocting in the studio, the Miami-based producer remains a mainstay on the nightlife circuit.
