Its been busy as ever round the Shakinda studios. After qualifying for the finals of Edirol's first ever Vj Battle, Shakinda held it down at the London International Music Show to come away ranked top 9 in Europe by Edirol.
This was an awesome experience but the last few weekends have been bigger than ever, starting with a 10 hour performance on stage to 20,000 in Portrush on two 50m2 LED panels, alongside Dj talent like Fedde Le Grand, Eric Prydz, Steve Angello and Utah Saints
Then back down to Dublin the next weekend for 12,000 at Planet Love Summer Session, in a rather muddy fairyhouse. Judge Jules and Marco V were in fine form and the production in the tent was really top class.
Last weekend was the legendary Summer Madness festival in the Kings Hall in Belfast. Their Shakinda performed twice daily with Pete Kernoghan and the Summer madness band, to a crowd of over 5000. The Christian spiritual element to the festival gave shakinda an opportunity to explore some interesting themes and communicate in a very different environment from club performance.
Which totals 37000 in three weekends, this weekend its the Life Festival in Galway and next VideoARK in Berlin so the race for 50,000 in five is on...

The crowd in Yello we're loving it as the lads kept them dancing till 6am. Thanks to Aaron and Lawerence for organising a brilliant night.
As featured on national daily's Televsion section, Shakinda worked with Miss Sixty / Energie and Av company Box22 to produce a unique visual show to accompany their recent fashion show in the Blackbox in Belfast.
On the night Shakinda combined a live camera feed, his trademark 3D models of belfast's landmarks, with special remixes of the European Winter Collections DVD and night specific branding. Creating a unique perfomance much to the satisfaction of the label, Propellor PR and guests attending.
