  • With Shaanti’s expertise and knowledge of the music scene, help us tap into the market with confidence. Their professionalism sat snugly against their down to earth attitude and their innovative PR and marketing skills took the project to another level which made this compilation a international success.

    Duncan Collins (Ministry of Sound)
  • Their ability to stay at the cutting edge of arts and entertainment made them perfect collaborators for the Decibel Expo festival launch. With their unique hybrid of conceptual, popular and traditional artforms, they delivered a spectacular showcase that received a phenomenal reception from audiences and representatives of the arts community.

    Dianne Morgan (Arts Council, Decibel Expo)
  • ‘Shaanti was commissioned to organised the closing party for our project. They demonstrated a superb understanding of our needs and had a creative and professional approach. What was also excellent was their cutting edge fusion of live and remixed music inter-cut with iconic film imagery.’

    Cary Sawhney (British Film Institute)
  • Shaanti brought a different perspective and added an extra dimension that would not have been found elsewhere. Shaanti acted professionally, delivered beyond our expectations and we look forward to working with them in the future.'

    Andy Anderson (Channel 4 Ideas Factory)
  • "Shaanti is one of the most forward looking clubs in the world. It has its roots in one genre, but is always pioneering new sounds and thus forever evolving and keeping things interesting. For any serious music lover anywhere in the world this is the place to be right now.'

    Martin Morales (Outcaste Records)
  • ‘If one thing defines Birmingham club Shaanti it isn’t the sounds imported from the subcontinent but a rip up the rulebook approach that could only have come from the UK. Featuring grime, dub, hip-hop and drum’n’bass with an Asian twist and a punk attitude, this is the most exciting and vital cultural crossover since The Clash discovered reggae.
