Stevens “ShadowReD” Duplessy, renowned for his wide range of musical spins, developed a love and admiration for music at an early age. Developed from “shadow” behind the music and “red” for his passion, ShadowReD was Brooklyn born and raised in northern New Jersey where he forged multi-cultural friendships and was exposed to a mixed swath of musical genres, from House, Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop, Latin, Reggae, Classics and R&B. This musical melting pot paved the path for his career as an adaptable DJ who can mix it up or embrace a specific style, consistently tailoring to his audience.
ShadowReD is respected for thinking outside the box, blending culture and sound, and injecting his innate humor into every gig he performs. After stints as a promoter for well-known artists, engineering at Playground/Mini Mansion Recording Studio, and free-lance entertainment correspondent for The Comcast Network in 2007, he gathered his collective influences and devoted his career to spinning tunes. His accomplishments in such a short time are nothing short of awesome. Placing his unique stamp on the nightlife of New York City, he became resident DJ at Club Lotus. People took notice; since then ShadowReD has spun for clubs across the globe, and at special events hosted by A-List celebrities. His singular talent, passion for music of all genres, and intuitive ability to connect with people makes him unparalleled. In his own words, “make someone dance & you’ve touched their soul”, ShadowReD is just scratching the surface as he draws together his diverse, eclectic canon, and devotion to the magical synergy of people and music.
He has spun at some of NYC's most prestigious venues and events, with a listing that includes: The Plaza, Bryant Park, Tribecca Grand, Gansevoort & Dream Hotels, Lavo, SL, Butter, 1Oak, Tenjune, Gold Bar, Upstairs, Mansion, Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, Pink Elephant, Nikki Beach Midtown, Cabanas, Hiro & Highline Ballroom. He has also spun for former NY Mets manager Willie Randolph at his daughter's wedding, Victoria Secret Fashion Show After-Party 2011, NY Giants Official Super Bowl After-Party, Project Sunshine Children Charity feat. John Legend, Anheuser-Busch Chill Town Summer Series, Spotlight Live, The NFL Draft party hosted by Kim Kardashian and is the tour DJ for R&B artist Donell Jones. Other events he has played at have seen the likes of Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Brooke Hogan, Alicia Keys, Paris Hilton, Gabrielle Union and Vin Diesel to name a few.
His international ventures include: The O2 Arena, Oceana, China White and Liquid in London, Heineken Center in Amsterdam, Tantra in St. Maarten and a private birthday party for world-renowned soccer player Rio Ferdinand of Manchester United. When you look at the "buzz" he has created and what he's been able to accomplish so far, it's hard to believe that this young DJ is just getting his feet wet! Leaving his mark on the NYC scene after only DJing since the summer of 2006 is just one indication of his drive and determination.
