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.
Shiba San followed up Okay with the award-winning track Burn Like Fire (Best Underground Track 2015 IDMA/WMC). With additional releases on labels loved for their irresistible tunes, he’s since seen his career launch off far and beyond the city limits of Paris.
While staying quiet on the public front, Shiba San remains a curious enigma to his international fanbase, allowing the music to do the talking for him. 2018 has been another cardinal year for Shiba San with a slew of strong releases; Off To Funk on Relief, Don’t Talk on Dirtybird, Excluded on Kaluki, All I Need w/ Tim Baresko on DTFD, plus more to come.
Children of the 90’s, Tim was cradled between house music & hip hop. He started Deejaying early on, chaining his first vinyls and getting the people to dance. It was not too long until he decided to start producing his own music. Tim’s particular and unique sound already found home in prestigious labels such as Cajual, Toolroom, Bedrock & Defected. Consistently in the studio daily searching for new sounds to make people dance, Tim Baresko already played in Belgium, UK, Italy, Turkey, Germany, Ukraine, Spain, Russia, U.S.A, Brasil and obviously in France, where he resides. He is slowly taking this scene by storm with his individual and unique sound.
