Profile:
Shannon “DJ Skip” Syas has gained worldwide acclaim as a dance music producer, remixer, promoter, and DJ. Skip hails from Chicago, where he contributed to the Chicago house music genre that quickly spread to the rest of the world and remains a vibrant sector of the dance music scene on any continent.

Skip’s first record “Traxx My Stylez” was released on Dance Mania Records, and his subsequent Dance Mania releases through his own production company ‘Push Pac Productions’ established him as one of the pioneers of the Ghetto House / Booty House & Chicago Juke movements, all sub-genres of classic Chicago House. Since then Skip has been taking over dance floors with house anthems such as “Raveolutions”, “Take It Off” and “Baby”, with various EP and LP releases under his belt, including Pushpac For Life, Raveolutions, The Inner Me LP, Life Experiences, Pushpac 2G Vol.1 – The Phuture LP, and other Push Pac releases showcasing the talents of fellow producers and DJs such as Paul Johnson, DJ Shark & Fotr, Tim “Bunky” Titsworth, Aaron Ochoa, and DJ Nehpets.

Skip joined forces with four-time GRAMMY® nominee and nationally-syndicated DJ, Steve “Silk” Hurley, to form the premiere dance music label,S&S Records. The label has since become the home to numerous house music legends and has released several compilation albums featuring original songs from a large roster of Chicago greats. Chicago’s Finest: The Chicago LP is a two-disc, two-DVD anthology of Chicago House Music filled with solid dance floor grooves, with new and previously unreleased music from legendary dance music artists as well as interviews of some seldom seen, legendary house producers and DJs, featuring tracks such as “Please Believe” by DJ Skip, “Just A Feelin’” by Hurley & Marshall, “Juke It” by DJ Slugo feat. Fast Eddie, “Magic” by Roy Davis Jr. feat. Terry Dexter, and “Siren Trax” by DJ Pierre, amongst others. Also featured is an exclusive Skip & Hurley remix of “Wouldn’t You Like To Ride [Silk & Skip’s Ride To the House]” feat. Malik Yusuf, Kanye West, and Common.

Skip also co-wrote the electro-house banger “Let Me Sip My Drink” with Robbie Rivera & Fast Eddie, whose Chuckie Remix has been rocking dance floors globally.

Recently, Skip has performed and worked worldwide with the likes of Umek, Kanye West, Common, Jazzy Jeff, Redman, Method Man, Ludacris, Twista, Mase, Lou Bega, Too Short, Justin Timberlake, R Kelly, Fantasia, Mario, Craig David, Artful Dodger, Todd Terry, DJ Tomek, Little Louie Vega, Paul Johnson, Carl Cox, Paul Oakenfold, Steve “Silk” Hurley, DJ Sneak, Slugo, Derrick Carter, Mousse T, Cajmere, Biz Markie, Bad Boy Bill, Bob Sinclair, Robert Armani, Funk Master Flex, DJ Clue, Felix Da Housecat, Daft Punk, Icey, DJ Skribble, Roy Davis Jr., DJ Funk, Kenny Ken and Jam Master Jay just to name a few.
