There's much more to Shiba San than what meets the first listen. Leaving behind a 15-year long

career of production experience in the French hip-hop scene, the Parisian producer became

fascinated with the sounds of Chicago house and was inspired 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. It claimed the No. 1 position on Beatport's House chart for 82 days,

remained in the House Chart's Top 10 for over 180 days, was put on rotation by radio tastemakers

like Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard and received support from the likes of Claude

VonStroke, Eats Everything, Green Velvet and nearly every major DJ under the sun. Upon its release,

Rolling Stone deemed 'Okay' a "global club sensation in waiting," a prophetic description that couldn't

have rung more true as it remains a commanding moment in DJ sets even to this day.

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, Relief, Repopulate Mars, 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, hitting iconic festivals

including Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas, Movement Detroit, The BPM Festival in Mexico, The

Warehouse Project, Stereosonic, CRSSD, as well as milestone venues like Output in New York,

Ministry of Sound in London, Sankeys in Ibiza, Exchange in Los Angeles and The Mid in Chicago.

2017 was a busy year for Shiba San, beginning with a hearty compilation release on his own

Basement Leak label featuring his standout tune 'Drop It.' After embarking on a North American coheadlining

tour with the esteemed MK, he released projects on Lee Foss' Repopulate Mars, Snatch's

Brock Wild imprint, and a 4-track EP with the legend, Green Velvet. 2018 is set to be another cardinal

year for Shiba San and it's guaranteed to be an exhilarating ride… just the way he likes it.
