Biography

DJ Shan Tran AKA Shannon Train discovered electronic music at age 16 at which time she was hooked into the rave scene. Her involvement in the scene has continued for 10 years.

In 1998 a new bridge was crossed when she saw jungle legend DJ Storm spinning in New York City. Seeing Storm spin gave Shannon the inspiration to try it herself. This event helped spawn a spree of buying records. Although, she could not afford to buy the equipment herself, others let her experiment on their tables.

After only playing for 6 months Shannon made appearances on drum and bass TV’s radio show’s a few times. Finally, Shannon landed her first big gig in the fall of 2003 at an appearance in Louisville called “wicked”.

Currently, Shannon has teamed up with long time friend and teacher Miles Christian. They have formed a tag team partnership called subliminal criminals and spin jungle and DNB. The pair has a great chemistry and is known for their dark and dirty beats.

Shannon is known for her tech-step, down temp, old school, and intelligent jungle/drum and bass sets.

Her main purpose for DJing is for the love of the music and entertaining people. Her goal is to influence at least one individual each time playing out. If this is accomplished than she has done her job. Jockeying for respect in the DJing world is a hard accomplishment but is one of her biggest goals.
