532 – Shiba San


In recent times Shiba San has garnered a lot of positive attention from every corner, with one foot in his hip hop past and the other embracing the future of house he has found a comfortable collision of the two in bass heavy ghetto funk. And associations with both Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird label and AMINE & Dance’s Cuff certainly haven’t hurt.

His recent release “Okay” effortlessly became a contender for our 2014 summer soundtrack, and it’s currently making some serious rounds on the club circuit, shooting straight to the top on Beatport’s House chart and coming in at numero 3 on the overall rankings provides – a clear indicator of the power behind this low slung rumbler. As if hearing the track yourself wouldn’t confirm that!

It’s fair to say that Shiba San is primed and ready to blow and we are excited to have him join the Podcast Ranks today! Shiba’s ‘Drop It’ is part of the new ‘Various Leaks, Vol.2’ that is out now on his label Basement Leak, you can Grab it here

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
