French producer href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/shiba-san">Shiba San is one the few producers who backs up his vast reserves of talent with a mysterious back story, adding a layer of depth to his alluring persona. The experienced producer toured the global underground dance music circuit for fifteen years, before finally bringing his well-rounded hip-hop and house fusion style to North America back in 2014.
href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/claude-vonstroke">Claude VonStroke welcomed Shiba San into his href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/dirtybird">Dirtybird imprint began back in 2014 with his hit single “Okay,” which propelled the producer to an international audience. Working with the label ever since, Shiba San has released a large number of hits over the past few years.
His latest track with href="http://dancingastronaut.com/tag/will-clarke">Will Clarke, “Don’t Hate Me,” reprises their yearly partnership for the annual Dirtybird BBQ compilation album. The unfussy, club oriented single has a distinct tech house influence on each of its crisp elements, ranging from the thumping drum samples to minimalist bass lines. This allows the track to achieve a fine balance between house, minimal techno and the “tech funk” sounds that Dirtybird has pioneered over the last twelve years.
The track is a part of the Dirtybird BBQ: Secret Ingredients compilation, out on May 19.
