Early 2007, Raiden also known as Shareena Jacobs, fell in love with the music of the Harder Styles. The years that followed she went on 2 missions to Afghanistan, and it was Hardstyle that was played all day long by her roommates when they were off duty. In this environment and under these crazy circumstances, Hardstyle planted a seed with passion deeply in her heart and from then it started growing and growing. Funny fact, although the seed was planted in 2007, her first festival experience, (different than you maybe would expect) was a couple of years later on Mysteryland.
The moment she entered the grounds of Mysteryland she could feel the adrenaline pumping through her veins. The stage, the DJ’s, the surroundings, the crowd and the dedication. It all fell into place. She was immediately addicted and knew that this was what she wanted most. Amazed by the overwhelming feeling of what music can do, she could not resist anymore. From that moment on it was determination that guided her to make music that plays a role in people’s life, Raiden was born.
In 2014 she had her first gig at Dream Village. Q-Base, Intents Festival, Daylight Festival, Ground Zero and many others followed rapidly after. Her remix Black Identity – Blckr Thn Blck (Raiden remix) got released for free on the internet in June 2015. At the end of 2016 her musical career took an excited jump by signing at Fast Forward Bookings.
Keep an eye out because this talented power woman is coming for you, and she is ready to pump her music straight into your heart!
