2016 December 11

Lipstick Disco’s 2016 Christmas musical advent calendar – we’ll be bringing a daily dose throughout December of 24 kick-ass women, who’ve been making and playing kick-ass music in 2016.



Shanti Celeste is a name we haven’t mentioned on the blog here before, but one that has certainly been on our lips – the Chilean born Bristolian based DJ / producer brings a warm, analogue, dusty and soulful feel to her sets and productions. Her first 12” ‘Need Your Lovin’ (Baby)‘ came out on BRSTL in Sep 2013 and spawned a stream of stunning releases since, a number of which have found their first airing on the prestigious ‘Boiler Room Debuts’.

2016 has been a solid year for Shanti Celeste DJ wise, continuing with regular solo shows on NTS radio an incredible US tour in September, and closer to home DJ appearances at Lovebox, Secretsundaze, Dimensions Festival, Panorama, Tresor, ://about blank among many others – you can also catch her playing this weekend at Manchester’s The Warehouse project.

Production wise, a recent solo track ‘Dolphin Chant’ was released as part of the Cragie KnowsSecond Annual Fundraiser for War Child and came out on Dec 5th. She also recently announced the launch of her own imprint ‘Peach Discs’ the debut EP of which will be a delicious 2 tracker from the lady herself – you can sneak a little preview HERE. This year Shanti also turned her hands to remixing and her debut reworking was released in Sep by her local buddies at Bristol Based Idle Hands – the stunning ‘Manhattan’ by L.M.Y.E (Shanti Celeste Remix) serves as #11 of our advent.
