With this open-minded approach, Shantel is the audible side of a different Germany. He is the first to have injected a cosmopolitan sound into the local pop culture. In his case, migration can be heard and danced to. He plays musical treasures from south-eastern Europe, the Mittle East or the Mediterranean in a new context, making it possible to experience intuitively the cultural it originated in.
His method is cultural sampling: taking things out of their context and putting them into a new one. Club culture as a concept of permanent development, not as a museum in which to repeat the same, eternally – like in Berlin, where thousands of tourists wait in front of Bergain so as to be able to experience the predictable.
