SoulShaker is the love child of Sydney based DJs Mr Glass and Robin Knight. Friends since the late 80’s and occasionally sharing the same stage throughout the 90’s, they found themselves tussling over the same decks on an ever-increasing regularity in the new millennium. This was read as a signal from the Gods that resulted in their decision to partner up as a package. At the time very few dj’s were playing the music they wanted to play or hear, so it was only natural they should go down this path. In the wild I think this may be natural selection.
The SoulShaker sound is really both Pete and Robin’s joint musical heritage, fused seamlessly together to produce a unique sound system. Not wanting to be pigeon-holed these days is hard to avoid, but SoulShaker achieves this by playing across numerous musical styles, and by not being afraid to experiment by dropping the “weird”, the “surprising”, the “classic”, the “obscure” or simply the “wonderful” at unexpected moments during a set.
Today, SoulShaker as a brand has grown far greater than just a couple of dj’s and has developed into a hub of entertainment services with a collective stable of impressive niche market dj’s, club nights, sound systems & live performers.
A quick peek into our crackerjack DJ & artists roster will revel accomplished bios with a sublime record of venues & events we have played and international artists we have shared the stage with.
