Born in Bielefeld, the 20-year-old Shaleen has already called many towns in her life her hometown. Due to her parents, the creative girl already came as a teenager in contact with the club culture, because her father had pursued several clubs during the last years. She used to live in Miami for almost a year where she could make her first experiences with clubs like Space Treehouse and Mekka. Musically stamped and impressed was Shaleen mostly by Richie Hawtin and his Minus Gang. A special moment in her life, had been Hawtin’s Set at Timewarp in Germany several years ago. Completely overwhelmed from the music, the atmosphere and how Richie was able to touch so many people, it was the first time she knew what she’ll do in life.
Since two years, the town Essen plays a huge role in her life. With her friends from Strassenmusik she was able to create her life like she always wanted to and her initial feeling developed itself slowly to real plans for the future. Countless nights in the scene passed by and the craving for an own creative process grew steadily. From this motivation she taught herself to play. Differently than most new beginners nowadays, digital putting on with Traktor, Serato und Co never were an option for Shaleen. Supported and powered by her friends she became better and better. Then it was time. She got her first chance to play in front of audience. Thrown directly in the cold water, she played in this evening in front of 800 people at the Frohnatur. The girl who has travelled around to find a place to call home, and be part of this scene, now, finally, had arrived. With her dark sound and her appearance she tied up the people directly and had it from the beginning under control. Alm ost like she never did anything else. Two weeks passed by and the next booking had already come. This time in Cologne. From that point, there was nothing that could prevent her from living her dream. The next gig in Bonn quickly followed. Then it should pull her back to her roots, back to Frohnatur. On the legendary Halloween party she positioned herself infront of a huge crowd of 1900 people and delivered again, as expected. Due to this evening, she ensured herself a place in the Frohnatur-family, and at the same time, the next two gigs in her first year. What you can notices immediately if you talk with her about the subject Techno, is that there is no person who loves this kind of music and this kind of life more, and also represents it more. One thing is certain! During the coming years we are going to hear a lot more from the upcoming artist.’
