March is definitely turning into ‘new music month’ this year, and house music fans are treated to a surprise release from popular Yeovil based DJ Sheridan Knight.
Sheridan bounced on the scene in 2019 with DJ performances across the festival season, and a fully booked 2020 which has had to be postponed due to Covid, the 29 year old is bouncing back on the scene with a brand new single ‘One Shot’.
Personally, I’ve had this track for a while, and haven’t had chance to play it anywhere other than radio, yet I know this song will go down well in the clubs and festival circuit - One Shot is simply put a tech house banger - expertly mixed, beautifully mastered, and very, very bouncy, and is set for release 12th March.
We talk to Sheridan Knight, the guy behind the new track.
Frazer Mitchell; Sheridan, nice to speak to you, it’s certainly been a while!
Sheridan Knight; Yes Frazer! Great to speak to you too. We’ve been meaning to do this for sometime, thank you for having me.
FM; So where to begin - lets start off by talking Covid, how much of an affect has lockdown had on your gigs and performances you were booked for?
SK; Covid has had a huge affect on my gigs and performances, I had been booked in several countries at some top party destinations including Zante, Kavos, Aiya Napa and Albufeira which all had to be cancelled due to the pandemic along with several festivals and clubs along the way, fortunately it has allowed me to focus on production which I may not have had as much time to focus on if my 2020 booking had happened.
FM; Talk to me about One Shot, how did it come about?
SK; I’d finished a Facebook live stream on Facebook and felt I wanted something more of my own to play so I started playing around with different sounds and managed to come up with One Shot. Following creating the song thankfully I got signed to a record label Charlie Funk House.
FM; So let’s talk about production the production side of things - where did this one come from? What’s your set up like?
SK; I’ve always played around with music production from a young age but decided I wanted to really go for it now I haven’t got any gigs booked in which allowed me to dedicate most of my time on production. I started on logic with my laptop but have now invested in more and more equipment and have now just finished my own studio
FM; Thanks Sheridan for chatting with us today, keep up the good music, what’s next for you as a DJ / Producer?
SK; thanks for having me Frazer it’s been a pleasure! I have 5 songs now including One Shot so I’ve been a busy bee. New songs to come following One Shot so keep your eyes peeled!
