Deep SHoq (LTU)
Hailing from Vilnius, Lithuania, Deep Shoq (aka Donatas Rinkevicius) is a producer of so called urban-electronic beats scene, always searching for the best proportion between future beats, bass, footwork and r&b flavours. His sound sits in the beat-laden, post-dubstep territory with a very chilled, almost hip-hop vibe that rattles with optimistic synth lines and chopped soulful vocals intermittently.
Deep Shoq has been recently nominated in National music awards (M.A.M.A.) as one of the Best Electronic Acts in the country (2015).
Deep Shoq, who‘s been studying piano since childhood for 12 years, emerged as a solo musicmaker in 2009, pursuing the electronica and future side of beats with a numerous appearances in Lithuanian beat compilations “RITMO KOVOS“ by Renegades of Bump. The producer has got four EPs under his belt, bunch of remixes and is constantly into new projects, one of them being collaboration with r&b vocalist Kotryna.
With considerable support from heavyweights, Deep Shoq‘s release “Arrows“ EP (2014) lauded him as a promising up and coming producer. It has been validated by the likes of Mixmag Bass charts, and was also featured on King Britt’s BBC Radio 1 guest mix for Benji B.
The newest releases under international labels such as Project Mooncircle (DE), Shimmy Records (UK), Future Beats Records (UK), Black Marble Collective (US) and, most recently (2016), “Krystallise“ EP on one of Asia's finest digital labels Darker Than Wax (SG) have put him on the map. The lead single of the EP has been premiered in Boiler Room Debuts series.
