Shibby Shitegeist is the nom-de-jeux employed by an aural manipulator and facilitator of personal somatic practice.
Translation: Shibby Shitegeist plays other people's music, sometimes her own. This is not her real name.
She figures the spirit of the times stinks, so it may as well sound good...
That said, Shibby has recently upset her housemate, baby girl, and neighbours by learning to play the musical saw. The 'baby girl' part of that sentence gives you a clue as to why she has been a bit quiet recently.
With releases already on Doma Musique, Coal, Bleepsequence, Deep Square and Make Mistakes, Shibby is currently working on an EP for German label Klangscheiben. In March 2015 her debut EP, 'Moebius Stripper' climbed to no. 9 in the Beatport charts for minimal releases - which is nice, but not important.
Shibby feels most comfortable situated within the experimental margins - creating soundworks that go where they need to, are trippy, non-compromising and full of quirk.
As a DJ she is most content when finding music that helps her cerebral mind get funky, believing that 'chin stroking', dancing and having fun ought to happen all at once.
Since autumn 2011 Shibby has played internationally at the Beatport Lounge, Norad Dance Bar (Denver, Colorado), 2739 Edwin, (Hamtramck, Michigan), La Mi-Ja de La Mezcalera (Tijuana, Mexico), Pudel Club (Hamburg), Smarties Bar (Nice, France), Raw Temple Club (Berlin), and for Blackbox and Mini Malice (Montreal). She regularly contributes podcasts and guest-mixes to radio shows such as FutureMusic, Sceen.FM, Dissident Island Radio, StudioFeed Toronto for HushLamb, and greenbox.tv (Hamburg).
Between 2013 - 2014 Shibby co-hosted Plymouth's Subheavy Radio Show on www.eatmusic.co.uk, showcasing numerous artists from around the globe. She has also contributed guest-mixes all over the place and performed live on radio shows such as Dissident Island (London), StudioFeed for HushLamb (Toronto) and greenbox.tv (Hamburg).
As a resident DJ for official rave experts JamTheChannel she has been lucky to share the bill with some incredible artists. Her UK appearances include playing at Corsica Studios, Cargo, Russian Bar, Red Star, Question Mark, Skream Bar, Urban Bar, Moustache Bar, LARC, Unit 10, Stunners, The Croft, Take5, The Island, Basement 45, Musicquarium, Cavern Club and many others.
In 2006 Shibby co-founded DANZSHLAG, one of the first minimal techno parties in the Southwest of England. DANZSHLAG touched down in different cities (London, Bristol, Plymouth, Hamburg) in a range of warehouses, clubs and bars. The night, whose slogan was 'purveyors of four to the floor frag-beat and fuck-step', offered guest-spots to the likes of Dualism, Daegon, Tim Sheridan, Falling Cows, David Last, Filastine, Coleco and Victoria Klewin, Nokken, DoubtingThomas, Patrick Bolton, Damien Schneider, EMPTYSET and many more.

Whether it's excited conversation in the corner of a club, event's promotion, mixing, remixing, producing, or editing music videos, Shibby's ultimate desire is to share sounds with you. ♥
