With bylines for publications like Resident Advisor, Spin, NPR and the seminal electronic music magazine XLR8R (where he previously served as editor), Shawn Reynaldo is one of the key journalists in the world of electronic music.
As the host of Red Bull Radio’s First Floor, this Bay Area native and current Barcelona resident is known for highlighting the best new sounds that electronic music has to offer. Over the years, he’s staked his reputation on telling it like it is, along with a knack for identifying the DJs, producers, labels, promoters, parties and festivals whose work rises above the incessant 4/4 thump of this ever-evolving world.
In addition to his work as a music journalist, Reynaldo spent years as a producer and operations manager in terrestrial radio, as well as an independent label boss and party promoter. As you might expect, he's also a DJ, and continues to climb behind the decks from time to time.
