Portland's trans-continental groove maniac!
Spinning world beats at parties since the early 90s, GlobalRuckus has never been afraid to play songs that fall far outside of what people expect to hear from DJs. Favoring high energy world party music or perhaps the type of music you'd hear at traditional weddings around the world, he works the dance floor into a frenzy playing klezmer, Balkan, calypso, New Orleans brass band, mariachi, bhangra, cumbia, Arabic hip hop, Asian baile funk, and more.
Shashi Kiran aka DJ Skee is a dancer and DJ residing in Portland, Oregon. Born and raised in the South Indian cosmopolitan city of Bangalore, Shashi grew up on Bollywood and other Indian regional movies with exposure to diverse cultures, music and dance.
