Twisting luscious old time jazz, swing and lounge tunes with fidgety uptempo house beats, Shakti Bliss has created a genre of her own called “Dirty Electro Swing”.
Think Betty Boop meets Burning Man with a ridiculously romantic ending.
Dressed to the nines with polkadots ablaze, Shakti Bliss exudes her flirtatiously addictive pleasure for 1930’s swing culture with a fun loving modern sexy edge.
Her unique live mash-ups and remixes keep the dance floor swinging with a bohemian flair and unavoidable banging bass music. Occasionally it gets dirty, then suddenly goes all love bird again.
At the end of every set, Shakti is known to play a vintage classic (think La Vie En Rose), jumps into the crowd and slow dances with her fans. Occasionally her monkey sidekick will join in the antics!
My first DJ gig!
Following a passionate career as a performance artist, PujaFunk Dance Ritual facilitator and fire dancer with a touch of burlesque, Shakti Bliss began DJ-ing after some friends convinced her to put a set together for an Erotic Circus Ball in 2008.
From underground Burner Speakeasies to dance clubs on the Hollywood strip (with the occasional trip to high brow corporate events and fancy weddings), Shakti Bliss continues to leave her unique mark in the West Coast music scene.
Granddaughter of virtuoso banjo player Gil Snyder, who was featured back in the day on the Ed Sullivan show and rumored to have run with “The Rat Pack“, Shakti Bliss has old timey Vaudeville entertainment in her BLOOD! Her grandmother also sang, danced and MC’d for the USO during the war and took care of little Sammy David Jr. during tour. (If anyone has an old record of Gil Snyder please contact me!)
Shakti Bliss resides in Southern California living her dream life by the ocean. She also works a day job as a Business Consultant and Web Geek for Hip Creative Entrepreneurs and has a vintage inspired hat and apparel line at the Flapper Dapper Boutique.
