If you have been on any of the dance floors of Europe’s hottest clubs in the past few years, you have likely heard one of Mr. Shammi’s collaborative hits. From Love Message with Vic feat. Clea and Kim (Dance and Love, Italy/Clipper’s Sound, Spain) most recently to Walla Walla feat.Mad Stuntman (Happy Music, France), Girl Next Door with LuuX (Room for Visions, Denmark), Raise the Roof with Rizzo vs. Miki (Blanco y Negro, Spain) Saturday Night with Simone Di Bella (Disco Planet Records Italy) and Misfit with Darius and Finlay (Trak Music, Austria/Sony Music Germany). Mr. Shammi never stops churning his own unique brand of dance music alongside some of Europe’s most inspiring and creative producers.
The U.S.-based, Caribbean-born singer delivers fast paced, high energy lyrics for a slew of summer savvy songs all of which have gained attention in clubs and radio stations throughout Europe, Asia, South America and beyond. With even more dance-inducing hits planned for the year ahead, Mr. Shammi is an artist to keeps tabs on.
His barrage of music follows from a successful partnering with world renowned DJ and Producer Bob Sinclar beginning in 2011, on the tracks Me Not A Gangsta released in English as well as in French with a collaboration from Colonel Reyel on Sinclar’s Disco Crash EP on Yellow Records and Universal records France; and No No No No featured in the Italian movie Vacanze di Natale a Cortina in Italy, on Sinclar’s Africanism sub-label with several re-mixes and on Sinclar’s latest EP Paris by Night.
Mr. Shammi joined forces with newly formed duo LuuX out of Denmark, consisting of Martin Almind and Claus Flid, for Bubble It which rose on the charts and playlists throughout Denmark on the Room for Visions label before being signed with Warner Music Germany for release throughout Europe. Remixes of the track were also released available from Claus Flid, Fabian Mazur and Bodybangers.
Over in Belgium, Mr. Shammi worked with the well established producer Laurent Wery (known for the hit Hey Hey Hey) to create Up 2 The Sky available via the La Musique Du Beau Monde record label, previously seated on the Ultratop top 50 singles and reaching #1 on Radio ABC Denmark for two weeks.
Down in Austria, Darius and Finlay and Mr. Shammi worked together to herald the coming of summer with the put-the-top-down-on-the-car-and-cruise track Summer Is Here, the title track for the duo’s first full length EP, released via Trak Music and Sony Music Germany.
Over in Romania, Free Deejays and Mr. Shammi put together the bubbly sweet, fun track Suga Love via Code Production Studios.
And, finally, for something a little more hard hitting Mr. Shammi ventured to Brazil for a floor banger with Brazil’s hottest dance act Felguk for the EDM reggae toaster Blaze It Up, a loud, thumping, erupting hit sure to wake up even the sleepiest of crowds.
While Mr. Shammi appears to be exploding on the European dance scene seemingly out of nowhere, his career in music is far from new. He is well known in his native country of Trinidad, where his most well known track Soca Bhangra with ragga singer Bunji Garlin was once a mainstay of Carnival fetes, in a country well known for their partying prowess.
