Summer is shaping up to be a hot one. We're dropping yet another open-air in New York in 2023, this time with Basement Leak founder and Dirtybird regular Shiba San. It's all going down on June 16th. We can't reveal the location for this epic day party, but rest assured, you won't want to miss a day of slinky house beats from Shiba and friends.

Ever since the release of his 2014 hit "Okay," Shiba San's womping low-end beats have maintained a firm grip over the house music scene. Upon its release, Rolling Stone hailed it a "global club sensation in waiting." An apt description for a track that has become part of the dance music lexicon, still getting regular plays nearly a decade after its release.

And despite writing an undisputed house music anthem, Shiba San is far more than the hit that helped define the prevailing sound of house music for years to come. His nearly two dozen bangin' Beatport #1 singles on labels like Green Velvet's Relief, Dirtybird, Defected, Lee Foss's Repopulate Mars, and his tastemaking Basement Leak imprint have made him a sought-after producer, performer, and remixer. And yet, as ubiquitous as his slithery sexy take on house music has become, he remains an enigma, preferring to let the music do the talking, remaining one of dance music's most celebrated artists.

Long before he became a house music heavyweight, Shiba established the imitable DJ skills that keep him in demand at festivals and club dates worldwide. Before writing "Okay," he spent 15 years in France's hip-hop scene. And for those in the know, the best DJ talent comes from those who have seamlessly crossed genre boundaries.

As a label owner, Shiba has made some of his most significant impact. Since 2017 he's helped break artists like Black V Neck while releasing chart-topping bangers from Gettoblaster and fellow Parisian beat swindler, Tchami.

We're excited to bring Shiba back to New York. His last show with us in 2022 was a sell-out success. It became a day-to-night affair with his Basement Leak homies taking over Superior Ingredients for 12 hours. You won't want to miss Shiba San putting in work on the decks this summer.
