SHIR KHAN (Exploited / Berlin) XLR8R: "SHIR KHAN is one of Berlin's hardest working and most entertaining DJs in any of the dozen genres he plays in." BPM: "If you enjoy the montage of sounds coming from DJs like Optimo, Glimmers and 2Many Djs, Berlin's DJ Shir Khan will treat you right. Shir Khan's repertoire spans an impressive amount of space." PITCHFORKMEDIA: " It's like everything good that's happening in dance culture right this second." WORD! After the critically acclaimed release of his double-mix CD MAXIMIZE! in 2007 SHIR KHAN has been busy touring Australia, Brazil (as support for LCD Soundsystem), Canada (as support für MSTRKFT), UK, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Ukraine and so forth, hitting top venues such as FABRIC in London, NITSA in Barcelona, I LOVE NEON in Montreal or RIO and PICKNICK in Berlin just to name a few. He took part at MELT! Festival, LOVEPARADE, FUSION (Germany), DISTORTION (Denmark), ELEKTRONIKA Festival (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) and LABOR OF LOVE (Canada). He has played on the bill with SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO, DIGITALISM, JUSTICE, BONDE DO ROLE, RIOT IN BELGIUM, YUKSEK, PEACHES, MSTRKRFT, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, ZOOT WOMAN and many others. IDJ reviewed his mix-CD SHIR KHAN - MAXIMIZE! as one of their "finest compilations of the year". His remix for BONDE DO ROLE (out on DOMINO) has received great airplay by all the top cats in the Dj game. His very own label EXPLOITED presenting artists such as ADAM SKY, SIRIUSMO and remix appearances by CROOKERS, TOMBOY, YUKSEK, PRINCESS SUPERSTAR has been supported by DIPLO, A-TRAK, SINDEN, JUSTICE, DIGITALISM, HEADMAN, BONDE DO ROLE and many more. It's well about time to introduce SHIR KHAN to the US finally by bringing him to SXSW festival this year!
