If you’re going to pick a DJ name like Dan Shake, you better have the goods to back it up. With a dizzying tour schedule that has shown no sign of letting up in over five years, and his own productions spinning around the platters of high elders and sparky upstarts alike, Shake lives up to his billing. His strongest suit is on show as soon as he steps into a situation: he embodies the innate love of dancing you need to cut it at this level, knowing exactly what it feels like to be on the other side of the booth, hanging off every record the DJ cues up and responding with glee. With an impish grin and at least one if not both arms outstretched, wiggling along with the groove, he is as much a mascot as man providing the music; he mirrors the vibe even while setting the pace. At a party, Dan Shake isn’t just loaded with peak time weapons – he is one.
