From the moment she entered her first afterhours, "Circus After-hours" in Montreal, Qc. to the moment she dropped her first huge bass line, Shannon Hilts, aka DJ Percusshunkidd, knew this was that thing she had been missing. Dancing thousands of steps inside the legendary Stereo After-hours, to promoting Ottawa's only all night dance party, she found that House Music fuelled everything she does. House Music was her reason to wake up.
During the summer of 2020, amidst Covid-19 lockdowns and while the world practiced social distancing, she turned back on her Pioneer decks and started curating sets that would get her noticed. She had become a Resident Dj for Pandemica Muzik Kollective from Ottawa, Ontario in August 2020. Within the next 3 months she was given the opportunity to be a Resident with House Nation Toronto Radio with her set titled "Feel My Beat". (available for download on her SoundCloud)
Spinning bi- weekly, 2hr LIVE sets, Dj Percusshunkidd plans to push the very best in new release Tech House, Techno, Progressive House and House. With hopes of creating the vibe the world needs.
She also airs Saturday mornings from 0400hr-0600hrEST 2000-2200hr AEST. (Australia Eastern Standard Time)
Her favourite DJ’s to date are Eli Brown for his Tech House vibes and rolling bass lines, James Hype who can make her tear up like “The Notebook” with his unreal drops and vocal samples from the jams she grew up with and absolutely loves the passion held within Nora En Pure and Camelphat’s production of Progressive House and Tech House tracks. She adds a dash of her personality when she drops Disney classics like “A Whole New World” from Aladdin and “The Circle Of Life” from The Lion King or picks up the mic or hand drum to throw some personal vibes too her mix.
Her plans are to continue making mixes and working with House Nation Toronto Radio as well as move across Canada to Beautiful British Columbia to continue promoting the Percusshunkidd name.
Keep your eyes on this one, her drive is relentless.
