GROOVE THERAPY has been broadcasting since 2002, every Friday lunchtime (12pm) on radio 2SER FM, Sydney Australia.
The show is presented and mixed by Shan Frenzie.
Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, R&B, Disco and party jams! Shan Frenzie grew up on a healthy diet of these sounds. He’s not some newschool DJ wannabe, flexing his beatport MP3’s and pumping his fists in the air. He’s got over 20 years of experience behind him, a record collection that will make any other DJ envious, and a concrete rep as one of Australia’s most trusted party rockers.
Frenzie has been around the block more than a few times, and seen a bunch of styles come and go over the years – many of them originally championed in the club by him. Taking inspiration from when DJ’s used to play for no less than 6 hours straight and transition between styles: Original Soul & Funk 45’s – Check. Deep House, Disco & Boogie – check. Hip Hop, R&B, Breaks & Beats – Check. Party joints and forgotten classics – Check!
Frenzie by nature? The name came from that mid eighties era when Australia adopted Hip Hop culture. Back when writing your names on trains, cutting it up on the turntables at neighbourhood jams, and laying down your latest production on a 4 track cassette recorder was the thing. He was catching wreck on the turntables long before earning your rep on facebook was the norm.
Since those days he has grown out of his namesake somewhat and done a number of significant things: Managed regular residencies at a number of Sydney’s most successful night clubs, Hosted 5 different radio shows up and down the east coast, written articles for many leading street press publications, and toured around Australia with some of the biggest events in the festival circuit. It’s never been just about playing other peoples music – Frenzie has the qualifications to teach many a young buck DJ a thing or two about being a genuine lover of the music.
But can he rock a party? Frenzie has been dropping memorable sets for years. Whether it be a one hour power mix or an all night marathon set behind the tuntables, Frenzie has plenty of experience reading the crowd and always drops an entertaining set – custom built from carefully considered quality jams and a dash of turntable trickery (Yeah, the man can most definitely mix a record!).
Shan Frenzie also hosts one of Sydney’s most beloved radio shows “Groove Therapy” – An hour and half long weekly mixtape of uninterrupted music gems from the “funkier” side of dance music history. It’s been broadcasting live on radio 2SER FM since 2002, and podcasting around the world for just as long – and as all his regular listeners know, stands testament to Shan Frenzie’s dedication to purveying great music to party down to.
