Nowadays, Shinedoe is a regular invitee at the global party hotspots but wherever she performs, it is her energy, radiance and unique ability to convey human emotions through electronic music that has enabled her to transcend borders and cultures and leave the clubbing crowds breathless.

Always keeping her sets interesting and dedicated to the dance floor, it's Shinedoe's blend of funky groove, (minimal) techno-sets with house, Chicago, acid and Detroit influences that are now recognised as an integral part of Shinedoe's DJing DNA. Her success is not surprising considering the rich story that led her to this moment.... Back in 1996, Shinedoe started producing music following a sound engineering course and when not in her studio, she could be found performing at major Dutch hosted festivals (Awakenings, Dance Valley) as well as overseas, including as far a field as China. After a few successful excursions into drum 'n bass, performing under the moniker Black Magic Queen alongside household names like Grooverider, Adam F and Aphrodite, 1998 is the year Shinedoe decides to fully dedicate herself to house and techno music and by 2001 she is the inspirational force and founder behind Amsterdam's INMOTION parties.

In 2004 she created a dance bomb with the release of her first single 'Dillema' on 100% Pure. It became the 2004 summer anthem of the Cocoon club (Ibiza) loved by the likes of Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth and Luciano. In the same year she founded Amsterdam label Intacto Records together with Dylan Hermelijn (aka 2000 and One). It's catalogue (continues) to offer a melting pot of influences to surprise each time - from Chicago to Detroit, from minimal techno to techhouse. ...show less
