Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

THE UK’s num­ber one hip hop and club DJ Shor­tee Blitz is com­ing to Boom night­club in Air­lie Beach on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 20.

Renowned for be­ing one of the Bri­tish mu­sic scene’s most pop­u­lar per­son­al­i­ties, DJ Shor­tee Blitz is a tire­less sup­porter of ur­ban mu­sic and, through his nu­mer­ous per­for­mances with artists such as De La Soul, LL Cool J, Jay-Z and Nas, he has also firmly es­tab­lished him­self on the in­ter­na­tional scene.

Shor­tee’s sig­na­ture skills of cut­ting, scratch­ing and mix­ing, as well as an abil­ity to con­sis­tently rock the dance floor, are rec­og­nized by the in­dus­try and his global fan base.

His long-run­ning, spe­cial­ist hip hop ra­dio show on Kiss FM has also been widely ac­claimed.

Shor­tee’s as­so­ci­a­tion with Kiss FM stretches back over 13 years, as the sta­tion where he first got his start as a mix DJ for the show he now hosts.

Con­sis­tently in high de­mand, Shor­tee Blitz has toured his in­no­va­tive style around the world to des­ti­na­tions as di­verse as Dubai, Hong Kong, Kenya, Malaysia, Albania, Pa­pua New Guinea, New York and Aus­tralia, to name but a few.

In ad­di­tion to DJ’ing ex­ten­sively through­out the UK and Europe, Shor­tee reg­u­larly holds down res­i­den­cies in Ibiza and Cyprus and has brought his tal­ent to ma­jor events in­clud­ing The Big Chill Fes- tival and Big Day Out in Val D'Isere (Switzer­land).

Shor­tee is a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to mag­a­zines such as I-DJ, Touch and Hip-Hop Con­nec­tion.

He can cur­rently be seen on Kiss TV as well as The DJ Takeover slot on MTV Base.

En­try to Boom is free be­fore 11pm.
