DIM028 – Dan Shake

Dimensions Festival June 2, 2020


Background

Dan Shake has achieved what no other has in over a decade: with his debut release in the music world, he’s become the very first producer without Detroit heritage or residency to land a release on Moodymann’s prestigious record label Mahogani Music. Based in London, the former Leeds student secured the feat in a charmingly anachronistic fashion: having just watched Kenny Dixon Jr perform alongside the 3 Chairs at Dimensions Festival, Dan simply handed over a demo CD with a collection of unreleased tracks. Moodymann was hooked instantly, taking the first plunge on welcoming an outsider into his tight-knit crew of Detroit strong artists.

Citing influence from the rhythms of Afrobeat pioneers, the soul-drenched sampling of J Dilla and the dense grooves laid out by contemporary producers such as Flying Lotus, Dan’s situation in winding up on a label renowned for encompassing all those traits is a blessing for the young producer.
