Shaun Saker (born June 23, 1988), better known by his stage name Shaun Shaker, is a South African progressive house and electro house producer based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. He has released a number of EP’s on Beatport and i-Tunes and has had a a few of his tracks playlisted on local radio stations.
Shaun has had a passion for music creation from a very early age, “My father had a recording studio at home and I often spent my days in there with him” he says. He was also privileged enough to have studied music theory and perform in an orchestra during his school years. Shaun first discovered electronic music production at university, through his hippy roommate, Art, “I honestly hadn’t thought about electronic music production and I definitely hadn’t thought about creating my own music, electronically. After seeing Art produce using only his pc, I was hooked and after learning the basics, I became kind of obsessed.” Since then Shaun has had an unrelenting passion for music production.
In 2010, Shaun began performing as an electronic music artist, in his hometown Port Elizabeth. He has played most of the venues in PE and has played alongside DJ’s Fresh, PH and Dino Bravo. Shaun has also come 2nd in two Battle of the DJ’s competitions, one of which he competed with his sister in the duo, “Shaken, not stirred”.
Shaun’s main goals are to share his music with as many people as possible, to tour the world and his big dream has been to perform his tracks live on stage, “I’m tired of watching an artist play a set, throw his hands in the air, say a few words and then leave. I want to create a show of it and perform "as live as possible", something that’ll grip you from start to finish, that includes an orchestra, pianos, drummers, vocalists, guitars, percussionists and whatever else we can incorporate into the performance.”
Shaun’s electronic music production is improving exponentially and he is very confident that, with your support, he will realize his dreams and goals and become a force to be reckoned with in the very near future.
