On this week’s edition of On The Fringe Thursdays, where we expose the hottest up and coming artists/DJs/producers of electronic music, we give you the pride of the PR west side Shaylom!
Harris Malberg (A.K.A Shaylom) is one of the hottest DJs from the west side of Puerto Rico. This EDM sweet heard from Lajas, PR got his big break after being an EDM fan boy in 2010 when he started getting his name out there playing in small clubs in the western coastline of Puerto Rico the likes of Hypa Hypa, Dom Pepe, Chillin, Canvas, Casino de Mayaguez, Cheers ect. He has also played in important fests; YellowPass and Hallowtown. Shaylom has also semented his name in house party legend with his private mansion party Euro Vibe, where DJs like Johnny Joe (Propane) and Extacy have played.
Shaylom started out like many DJs in the island playing private gigs with very varied musical styles varying from reggeaton to electro and dubstep. In mid 2011 he found his calling and with enough steam in the engine decided to keep to his calling genres; house, tech house, progressive and deep house.
Shaylom in 2011 heard his calling to move to Orlando where he has become a mainstay in the EDM scene, playing in clubs like Sleeping Moon and being the in house DJ of Ignition.
In his very short career Shaylom has been able to open for the likes of Wolves Can Riot, Doorly, Mord Fustang, Knife Party, Dillon Francis and more.
Harris Malberg definitely has alot to look forward in his career, with an EP on the way, many more gigs on the way an undying passion for playing and listening to music. With his geeky obsession with house and his commitment to being a business man we can expect not only alot of new DJ skills and music from Shaylom but a lot of events and news from him. Shaylom is destined to leave a lasting impact in the PR EDM music scene.
