Biography

With their organic mix of South-European & Balkan music and club-friendly electronics, Shantel’s Bucovina Club nights revolutionized the music scene and became an instant success: tired of dancing over and over again to the sound of usual club fodder, audiences of all ages and origins were conquered by the vitality and excitement of these electro/Balkan mixtures.

Shantel started playing clubs, parties and rock festivals around the world, and inevitably drove crowds to ecstatic bliss. We’re not talking about innocuous, politically-correct, silly folk dance classes here: whether he Djs or plays live with a band, Shantel has the knack for turning any venue into a vortex of pure euphoria, where people end up stage-diving, belly dancing, and generally going mad… In other words, he’s simply brought the Balkans to clubland, and his work soon inspired a whole generation of DJs who turned away from house, techno or breakbeats to embrace this new sound. The nail was further hit on the head with Shantel’s standard-setting remixes of tracks by the likes of Taraf de Haïdouks (created for Crammed’s Electric Gypsyland remix series which, coincidentally, was initiated around the same time) and as co-producer of Mahala Raï Banda’s debut album, as well as a handful of his own, seminal compositions (included in the Bucovina Club albums).
