Ministry of Sound-EUPHORIA Presents Shortee Blitz, 8th Oct 2008
Bandar Sunway, Selangor, Malaysia, 29 September 2008 – Bear witness to an urbane legend as hip hop extraordinaire Shortee Blitz performs ‘live’ at Ministry of Sound – EUPHORIA at Sunway Lagoon Resort in a one-night only event on 8 October 2008.
Ready to fuel temperatures on the dance floor, Britain’s finest hip hop DJ Shortee Blitz takes on Ministry of Sound – EUPHORIA with a showcase of rapid mind-blowing yet sophisticated sets. Weaving slick R&B flavours with underground beats, Blitz’s finesse for all-action mixing styles has seen thousands of records being cut, scratched, mixed and played tirelessly, earning him the “Best U.K. Club DJ” award at the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards.
Originally from Nottingham, Blitz grew up surrounded by a variety of musical influences including Ska, Reggae, Rock, early Hip Hop and Electro. From an early career of playing at warehouse and underground parties in Streatham, South London, Blitz’s big break came in 1993 when he was picked out from the crowd for a legendary beatboxing session with Snoop Dogg. Blitz impressed them so much that they asked him to do it again the next day, and this set the tone in his scaling music career.
Playing relentlessly at numerous underground gigs, Blitz’s turning point came when he landed the role of resident DJ for Kiss FM’s Hip Hop show. As his popularity with the station grew along with the size of his gigs, he caught the attention of the music press and soon after, he was seen collaborating with some of the biggest names in Hip Hop and R&B, including Jay-Z, De La Soul, Rock Steady Crew, Cypress Hill, Jeru, Run DMC, Mariah Carey and Jazzy Jeff.
Blitz has since enjoyed a string of award successes, winning the Sony Radio Award for Best Specialist Show for his slots on Kiss FM and picking up several nominations in the 2005 MOBO Awards as well as a nomination at the Urban Music Awards for his mix compilation, “The Blitz Power Mix”. Taking on the role of a presenter on Kiss TV, a Ministry of Sound residency, columns in Touch, Hip Hop connection and iDJ continual, and constant gigs all over the world including Dubai, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, Russia, and Europe as well as across the U.K., Shortee Blitz has more than cemented his place as one of the most influential figures in the U.K. music scene.
