Ferry Corsten – Live at Pacha New York
At the age of 19, Shane retired from a prosperous career as a professional cricket player in the UK,to persue his deeply seeded passion in Electronic Dance Music. After returning to South Africa in October 2004 he began to develop his skills as a dj, and after only 2 weeks, Shane was already mixing perfectly, feeling he was ready to start making his mark on the South African dance scene.
By the end of 2004 Shane had won the first DJ Competition he entered and was given his debut residency a mere 3 months after first touching a turntable! Since then he’s performed amongst some of the world’s top DJ’s, held top South African residencies, and also boasts many international gigs under his belt.
Shane always wanted to make music, not just dj. He met 2 producers during an event they were scheduled to perform at, and together they soon after formed the “Grim Brothers” who became very popular in the Southern African underground dance scene as Dj’s, producers and performers and ,in 2006,were amongst the highest ranked DJ/Producers in Southern Africa.
By mid 2007, the Grim Brothers decided that it was time to go their separate ways. Each of the members were carving their individual sound and wanted to pursue separate paths. Shane opted for the progressive, trance and techno genres as these were the sounds that lured him into the industry. In early 2008, Shane landed a weekly residency at Johannesburg based superclub, ESP. Through ESP, Shane had the honour and privilege of performing alongside some of the world’s most renown DJ’s and producers.
Along with the ESP residency, Shane was head-hunted for the position of “Label Manager” by leading South African Dance record label, Sheer Music, who had long standing partnerships with Vandit, Armada, Black Hole Recordings, Toolroom Records and many more major players in the scene. With this new position, Shane was responsible for the releases of Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Markus Schulz and many more including his own, within the territory.
In the 4 years Shane spent as a professional in the Electronic Dance Music industry in South Africa, he had seen and done it all, and was hungry for more. He now resides in the south of Holland, and works full time as Artist manager to Trance sensation FIRST STATE, as well as Label Manager to First State Music.
