Hi friends. Since I have collected so many DJ-mixes of mine in the past and still do my weekly radioshow, I decided to launch a personal SHIR KHAN Podcast.
I will update this podcast with fresh mixes of mine but also upload some old stuff. Expect to hear Radiosessions, Liverecordings from Clubs, Classic Mixes of mine + some Guestmixes from Friends. You can directly sign up via I-Tunes and always stay in touch with Shir Khan's sound:)
Spread the word!

Shir Khan is head honcho at one of electro's most consistently genre-redefining labels: Exploited. As well as putting out stuff for Adam Sky, Siriusmo, Lorenz Rhode, Malente&Dex, Mowgli aka Minimow, Zoo Brazil and more, Shir Khan himself is an accomplished DJ and remixer not to mention promoter of his Berlin Night "Jack had a Groove" (now "United Colours") &"Berlin Battery" and host for his weekly radioshow on Radio Fritz.
Berliner Shir Khan takes his name from The Jungle Book's villainous tiger and the similarities don't end there. Shir Khan proves he's as charming as he is deadly. Don't expect the usual Teutonic techno tones. Instead this is dance music hybridism in all its most glorious, baffling and technicolour forms, and Shir Khan's an expert at making square pegs fit round holes.
Electro-house is a crowded field with electric fences to boot. In such a busy genre where innovation is often suffocated by the sheer weight of volume of DJs, slamming club nights and relentless releases, it's rare to be sonically arrested. Shir Khan just did it. This Berliner is an old-school jockey managing to start global trots off the back of his well circulated mix-tapes before he'd ever made a tune. Now though, he has the confidence of many promoters in his hands as his productions rock, his label is fast attracting the best in European producers and his contacts and ability to scoop up talent suggests an engaging individual.
Shir Khan is absolutely savage, slick, eclectic, multi genred, music savy and connected. His first compilation "Maximize!" was a destructive mix of blazing modern anthems and fresh innovative talent, featuring big names alongside rising stars. His new "Exploited"-CD has been described as "engaging, riveting and diverse" and received fantastic media coverage with album of the month in Mixmag and DJ-Mag. After a small break he is back in full effect - remixing Munk (Gomma), Tony Senghore (Anonym), Malente&Dex (Exploited) and many more. His remixes have already been featured at BBC Radio 1 by Pete Tong, Mary Anne Hobbs and Kissy Sellout and been in the bag of DJs like Mastiksoul, Laurent Garnier, Ellen Alien, DJ Hell, Patrick Pulsinger, Riva Starr, Trevor Loveys, Jamie Anderson, Hudson Mohawke, Douster, Radioclit, Mowgli, Oliver $, Grecoroman Soundsystem, Bang Gang Deejays, Jackson&his Computer Band, Peaches.

Quotes on SHIR KHAN - EXPLOITED-CD:

"Musical hybrids are truly the flavour of today, but few have managed to capture the atmosphere of an unpredictable, mashed up DJ set on CD - until now. Shir Khan's mix bottles the zeitgeist's giddy thrills with plenty of style and substance." (DJ-Mag)

"With tracks by Adam Sky, Siriusmo and a whole host of other genius artists, into the Exploited melting pot go snake charmers and African tribesmen along with a strong dose of all things electro. Deliciously disjointed, this album proceeds to confuse and amaze, seamlessly cycling through jazz saxophones and bangra, never stopping the addictive beats and basslines. Get ready to feel used to enjoy exploitation." (Clash)

"Electro, eastern beats and quirky grooves both mixed and DJ-friendly. In fact, it's the only thing you need to bring to your next BBQ Dj gig, even if it's only really your turn to bring the charcoal. Sizzling!" (Mixmag)

"Engaging, riveting and diverse - it's a compilation Shir Khan can definetly be proud of." (Datatransmission)

"Shir Khan must be applauded, for both his ear, his vision and dexterity."  (Altsounds)

"Designed to be a microcosm of a night out." (4or the Record)

"EXPLOITED is constantly mutating, reverberating with a thousand ideas per minute. You will hear: dense, fast-flowing electro-tinged hiphop, distorted, overdriven P-Funk-esque basslines, spaced-out spangly synths, what sounds like a ravey 'Air on a G String' and a funked-up take on Soho's late 80s pop hit 'Hippychick'. Not to mention lascivious sluttery meets Thai wailing, minimal, old-skool ravey techno, Mr Skruff-style trouser jazz, gruff ragga chat, wobbly monster basslines, tabla-and-flute excursions. Wildly eclectic and joyously funky, it will reassure you that, thank God, not everything's gone Pete Tong." (Bearded Magazine)

"Es ist doch beruhigend, dass es auch von Berlin aus möglich scheint, im internationalen Urban-Freestyle-Alarm eine der lauteren Sirenen zu werden." (De-bug)

As diverse the compilation is - as diverse are the artists who fell in love with this compilation: Jackson&His Computer Band, Tim Paris, dOP, DJ Hell, Llorca, Zombie Disco Squad, Renaissance Man, Riva Starr, Beni, Steve Aoki, Breakbot, Grecoroman, Kasper Bjoerke, Khan of Finnland, Isa GT

A compilation of Exploited tracks & remixes

Shir Khan presents his labels second compilation 'Exploited' (following the critically acclaimed Maximize!) which showcases the labels finest moments as well as previously unreleased exclusive cuts. This double CD includes features and remixes by Bonde do Role, Siriusmo, Milanese, SIS, Riva Starr, Modeselektor, Oliver$, Soho, Analogik, Adam Sky, New Kidz (South Rakkas Crew), Jan Driver, Mowgli aka Minimow, Malente&Dex, Tomboy&Fredski, Crookers, Ku Bo as well as guest appearances from labels like Made to Play, Man Recordings, Tartelet, Deadfish, Wagon Repair, and Perlon who represent Zombie Disco Squad, Solo, Cobblestone Jazz, Matt John, The Glimmers, Le Le and Zomby.

The cream of the Exploiteds back catalogue has been put together on a double CD. The compilation includes a CD of unmixed Exploited tracks (featuring 50% new and exclusive stuff) and a mixed CD by Shir Khan, which includes exclusive Exploited material but also features a few tracks from other labels that has had an influence on the sound of Exploited in general - and Shir Khan in particular.

In the current scene of electro-house, it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd. Shir Khan is absolutely savage, slick, eclectic, multi genred, music savy and connected. Shir Khan's first compilation 'Maximize! was a destructive mix of blazing modern anthems and fresh innovative talent, featuring big names alongside rising stars. With his own radioshow on Fritz, record label, remixes, Berlin Battery club night, and fantastic media coverage thus far, from the likes of Mixmag, I-DJ, Groove and XLR8R; Shir Khan's new 'Exploited' CD promises to strip the wallpaper from the walls of your homestereo.

The label Exploited has received loyal support from the off (with spins by A-Trak, 2Many Djs, Diplo, Jesse Rose, Switch, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Freeform Five, Peaches, Aeroplane, Munk, Radioclit, Tiefschwarz, Dj T and Dj Hell to name a few...). The artist roster boasts Siriusmo, Adam Sky, Mowgli aka Minimow, Malente&Dex and Lorenz Rhode.

Exploited in general

This is a la-la-land of quality dance-floor tunes; a psychedelic paradise of booty-funk, krunked-up hip hop, dancehall&baile funk, freaky electro-house with African percussions, foreign languages, voodooesque Kuduro, gypsy and Bollywood-themes mixed with jacking music.

Exploited blend quality dance music with quality packaging and trendsetting design aesthetics. And the labels second compilation Exploited is proof of this. There's no doubt it's a little gem in either format, simply because it touches on so many genres; from Italo and disco to electro, minimal, techno, house, downtempo and glitchy bidness. Keep an eye on Exploited, as it moves electro out of its infancy and brings the fun back. It's a much needed breath of fresh air and melody in a dance music scene numbed by banging electro, polite house and discordant minimal tech.

Exploited Artwork

The Exploited Records artwork was nominated for Best Art Vinyl 2008. While Maximize! was designed by Berlin underground street legend Nomad (who has recently been commissioned by Demi Moore for an exclusive piece of work), all the other labels artwork - including the new Exploited compilation - have been designed by Marek Polewski from Floor 5 who has won several awards for his work. The covers of all the vinyl releases are pop hybrids by utilising famous pop cover art the Exploited releases then get painted over with the Exploited mark. The Exploited CD features the scandalous painting by french artist Gustave Courbet from 1866 which was being photographed through a kaleidoscope. This oil painting of a vagina was entitled The Origin of the World.

ugh a kaleidoscope. This oil painting of a vagina was entitled The Origin of the World.
