Being engulfed in music at an early age, it was only natural for Jair van Kruijsdik, a.k.a. Shimmer to turn towards DJing and subsequently, producing in his later years. With releases on Sleazy Deep, Nueva Deep, and Bonzai Progressive, the Colombian-turned-Dutchman has been on an absolute tear this year. His signature deep and sleazy style is nearly impossible not to like, with funky basslines and soulful samples that blend perfectly. Just take his remix of Framewerk‘s “As If” for instance, where Shimmer intricately weaves a detuned vocal sample from Blaque into a dark and vicious club-ready track. Garnering support from the likes of Him_Self_Her, Armin van Buuren, and Paul Oakenfold, and with upcoming releases on Electronique Digital, Armada Records, and Kittball Records, it’s safe to say that Shimmer is here to stay!
Through the past year or so, Shimmer has really given back to his fans, offering up free tracks nearly every month on his SoundCloud page. Below are just a few examples of Shimmer in action, that are available for free download in exchange for a simple Facebook like. If you enjoy his sound and want free tunes monthly, then be sure to follow him on Facebook and SoundCloud!
