Friday Feature DJ Shred One
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Sheila Red aka Shred One was constantly surrounded and heavily influenced by music at a very young age as she tagged along with her vinyl collecting brothers and cousins. She moved to Brooklyn, NY in '98 where she began collecting her own records and fell in love with the art of deejaying, as well as learning the music industry game working at Rawkus Records and Blacksmith Management. She began spinning out when she moved back to Los Angeles in 2004 and rocked parties like the infamous Root Down, Soul Sessions, and Funkmosphere. She has also toured with a unique 3x4 set across the west coast w/ her crew RRS FEED (www.therrsfeedsound.com). Now residing in Chicago, she has since played alongside cutting edge artists such as Daz-i-Kue, Dam Funk, 45 King, Talib Kweli, Exile, DJ Spinna, DJ Jazzy Jeff & more. You can find her spinning boogie & modern funk @ her monthly residency MAXX TRAXX @ The Whistler.
