Shenaaz has been digging for all forms of music for over 20 years – Born & bred in South Africa and since relocating to the UK, her drive to share what she’s so passionate about has only intensified. The versatility of her collection spans across Electronic, Funk, Disco, Jazz, Downtempo & Deep House – this has made it peculiar yet befitting for her to spin across various venues in and around London.
Shenaaz is also the Co-founder/host of T.A.M.E (Trans Atlantic Music Experience) which is a showcase of music that is mostly influenced by the exploration and resistance to oppression by people, influences, ideas, and music from across the Atlantic – which has shaped and fused different styles and genres around the world. T.A.M.E (@tamexperience) is hosted by and Shenaaz and Leeroy (@leetee86
