When most people think of edm DJs they think of crazy loud music with no vocals. This statement is one of the biggest stereotypes and people’s turn off from this genre of music. Shiba San provides the perfect counter argument to this misconception. Coming all the way from Paris, France he is mysterious in so many ways. However, he has deep connections to what many consider “real music.” One style most noticeably displayed is Hip Hop. No he does not remix the mainstream hip-hop songs Americans have come to love. Just kidding he has a remix to “Started from the Bottom” for all of the Drake lovers out there.
The crazy thing is that he has recently blown up and been on the spotlight in America. For 15 years he was killing it in France and Europe and most of us had never seen him live in concert. How in the world did this happen? He has said he had no idea Americans were waiting to see him and never expected so many people were listening to my music. Wow, how wrong was he! Another interesting point is to take a look at his logo. Not many DJ’s take advantage of this but it adds to his mystery. Is it a dog or a wolf? Those blood red eyes and scar are also inexplicable at this point. So is Shiba San truly a man?
Yes, he actually a normal human not to disappoint. He’s not flashy and he’ll usually be wearing a plan t-shirt with a dope snapback. Many DJs today are big on production and use fancy lights. However, Shiba San keeps it simple and lets his music do the talking.
Shiba is unique in that he uses his background in hip-hop to form a unique genre that many call “ghetto leaning deep house.” That sounds like a bunch of crap but only his music can do those words justice. He has combined classic beats with the new technology available to DJs now to make art that is truly personal to him. He is the perfect combination of hip-hop and house. Better yet he even includes vocals for those critics out there. His beats are not the in your face and pump you up type. Instead he will have you in a trance of sophisticated and mesmeric beats and rhythms. It truly is art that we never heard from edm artists before. On the beat drop regardless you will be sure to go nuts.
