Shantel (Vienna 2008)

Shantel, real name Stefan Hantel (born in Frankfurt January 1, 1968), is a Germanmarker producer and DJ, known for his work with gypsy brass orchestras, DJing and remixing traditional Balkan music with electronic beats. He is a descendant of the refugee Bukovina Germans.

Shantel began his DJ.. career in Frankfurtmarker, Germanymarker, and was inspired by the audience reaction to gypsy brass bands such as Fanfare Ciocărlia and trumpeter Boban Marković to infuse electronically-tweaked Balkan gypsy music into his DJ set. Shantel released two compilations of his popular DJ night, Bucovina Club, on his own Essay label, which won the Club Global award in the 2006 BBC Radio 3 Awards for World Music. He was one of several DJs to remix recordings of Taraf de Haïdouks and Kočani Orkestar on the Electric Gypsyland compilations from Belgiummarker's Crammed Discs label, and released his next album on that label. He gained popularity in Turkeymarker after recorded clip of 'Disko Partizani' in Istanbulmarker. Shantel's 2007 album Disko Partizani departed somewhat from the techno sound of Bucovina Club, concentrating more on the music's Balkan roots. On August 28th 2009 he released his new album with the name "Planet Paprika".
