Shane has been playing and making music for over ten years. But in 2016 he discovered the incredible Ecstatic Dance (ED) scene. He has played numerous ED gigs on the magical island of Koh Phangan (Thailand), Amsterdam and brought the first ever Ecstatic Dance to Kenya. He plays under the name of Mister Red!!
During his Ecstatic Dance events, his music ranges from Mystical beats to ArabHouse; Oriental to Progressive; Psytrance to Tribal/Afro house. Having lived and travelled all over Africa, Asia and South America during the past 15 years, he has picked up lots of music - with each tune influencing his sets.
From December 2019...he moved back to Koh Phangan, where he is a regular at Ecstatic Dances @Pyramid and plays at beach/pool parties with the EVOLVE and Pulse Events team, a joint production with friends.
The various live recordings of the ecstatic dances and his other sets can be found on both soundcloud and mixcloud.
About Ecstatic Dance
Enlightened world beat music, mystical, downtempo and progressive musical bliss. “Ecstatic Music are journeys for conscious movement and sacred Celebration”.
During his non ED sets, he tends to focus on deep house, Afro/Tribal House, progressive and Minimal House/Techno. But looks for unusual beats where drums, percussions & ethnic instruments are heard.
Some of his collections include the Playa de Phangan series (deep/progressive house with a blend of oriental/arab house beats).
The series can be found here: https://www.mixcloud.com/mister_red/playa-de-phangan/
And his latest collection: Uwazi Beats Vol. I - inspired by the move back to Africa and Kenya.
