Biography

Originally from San Diego, Shauk has traveled to the 4 corners of the United States, absorbing the various local influences. Now, he has come to Spokane, WA.

All throughout his youth he was a rabid proponent of Electronic Music. Hearing some of the compositions from the likes of Orbital, Underworld, and Rabbit in the Moon, Shauk began a stage of his life which could only be described as “formulative” What emerged from this musical cocoon was a man passionate for the EDM genre.

During his residence in the Dallas, TX area, he was still too young to attend the adult nightlife, but still tuned in religiously to hear the live DJ sets coming out of the Lizard Lounge via radio broadcasts, hoping he would be the one making the sounds influence future generations to love EDM as much as he was learning to.

Soon thereafter, familial obligations had moved him to the Inland N.W. to a rural community where EDM was a rare experience to behold, but that didn’t stop him. The internet was quickly becoming mainstream.

In 1999, He acquired the tools of the DJ trade, and thus he began his self tutelage.

According to The DJ List, he is one of the Top Ranked DJ’s in Seattle.

Completely self taught, he made his first public DJ’ing appearance in 2000 and has since gone on to develop his own unique discipline in choosing tracks to merge into new forms of aural artwork.

Shauk has played numerous underground events and club nights in eastern WA and enjoyed a positive scene and has since set his sights on Seattle. He has been on the lineups at See Sound Lounge, Qool Seattle, Fuel, Contour and Crimson C, and has been played on the internet radio station DI FM

He plays everything from Techno to Trance to Breaks to Energetic Progressive House in one set yet still manages to keep it all in check.
