Bio

Shane Woolman is a resident DJ and contributor to The Wire magazine and hosts regular radio shows on Resonance FM and occasional ones on Radio Alhara, NTS Radio and Radio Karantina. Shane moved from New Zealand to London while in his early teens, carving out a solid interest in experimental music from a young age and later going on to work for labels Some Bizzare and Matador Records before joining The Wire in 2002.

Always with an ear to the ground for new and unusual tracks, his sets are an eclectic mix of dub, electronic, psych, bass, hip-hop, techno, rock and funk, unearthing leftfield party bangers, unknown dub edits, archive Turkish psych and long forgotten classics. He has provided DJ support for Andy Stott, Hieroglyphic Being, Nkisi, Sun Araw, Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids, The Necks and Matana Roberts at venues such as The Jazz Cafe, Cafe Oto, The Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall and The Cube in Bristol, as well as playing standalone sets at festivals like Supernormal (UK) in 2016 and 2017, Fields (Russia) in 2019, Stihia (Uzbekistan) in 2023 and MENT (Slovenia) in 2024.

Shane is a regular Wire contributor in print, online and on air, having interviewed or featured artists such as Laurie Anderson, Selda BağcanRP BooGaye Su Akyol, Ana Lua Caiano, Carl Stone, African Head Charge, Ela Orleans, JulmudPeople Like Us, Maral, Deena Abdelwahed, Mungo’s Hi Fi and King Ayisoba among many others (a complete list appears below).

He has also administered and co-compiled The Wire Tapper, The Wire‘s longstanding covermount CD compilation series, since volume 12 (2004).
