Mix of the Day: Shelley Johannson
Shelley Johannson was born in Vancouver, grew up in Calgary, AB and then moved to Toronto to be in a bigger city and have more opportunities for music.
Started to listen to techno and dance music from an early age. Her older brother was really into techno and trance all through out the 90s and her attachment to dance music was influenced by him. She collected vinyl from her brother and played them over the years. Started DJ’ing almost a decade ago and was doing a lot of warm up gigs for trance headliners so she would spin techno and tech house to create a proper atmosphere. It was the genre of dance music that she felt the strongest pull towards so she jumped into production. It felt like the next evolutionary step with music.
Her first release ‘Midnight Red’ was on Octopus Black Label. It got a lot of positive feedback. Her records have received support from notable artists such as Ida Engberg, Sam Paganini, Mauro Picotto, Sian & more.
