The third in our monthly podcast series comes courtesy of Zak Shehata, a closet music geek and future doctor.
He began DJing when he moved to Manchester back in 2011, honing his talents between trips to the hospital, regularly guesting at house parties across Manchester’s Southern hemisphere. His journey into the field of vinyl started a couple of years ago in his hometown of Liverpool, when he bought ‘Give a Little Love’ by Photon Inc, a Strictly Rhythm classic which kickstarted his collection.
Zak has since spun records at Total Garage and Jammin’ Beats club nights, dropping tunes from garage and disco to house and techno.
He specialises in strong basslines and lots of dancing. Check out his mix below:
