DJ Shani

“When people tune in, they’ll experience a sound zone between the mid-neck and the mid-thigh,” says DJ Shani. “‘The Groove Temple’ is an every day, every moment sound. It’s not all fist bumps and big drops. It’s music that hits you at your core and makes you feel sexy.”

DJ Shani has been playing electronic music for 25 years. Born and raised in Chicago – the birthplace of house music – she finds inspiration in African rhythms; jazz artists, such as Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Pharoah Sanders; and soul artists, such as Irma Thomas.

“Six or seven years ago, I realized that Austin was ready for deep house music. I could see at my ‘United’ and ‘Together’ events that audiences were appreciative, curious and wanted more,” she said.

A three-time “My KUTX” guest DJ, she’s excited to have a regular show on KUTX 98.9. “Radio is my first love and I’ve missed being on the air. I want listeners to learn something and have a good time,” said DJ Shani, who has multiple sclerosis and uses a cane, and credits house music and the DJ culture to her healing.
