DJ Shah album “Songbook” (2CD) Out Soon!May 14th, 2008
DJ Shah – Songbook
He’s described by the mighty Tiësto as ‘A great producer’. His next release is in collaboration with the World’s No.1 DJ, Armin van Buuren. Averaging 12 productions a year (regularly caned by Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten and Above & Beyond et all), he’s one of Europe’s most prolific and highly-regarded trance producers. He is DJ Shah’_
Shah (real name Roger-Pierre Shah) first flexed his production muscles back in 1999, putting out tracks like ‘The Mission’, ‘Claps’ & ‘Tides of Time’. In 2003 his track ‘High’ was inked by UK Virgin Records sub-label Nebula. Since then he has signed his productions across trance heavyweights including Anjunabeats, Vandit, Blackhole & Armada/A State of Trance. His last outing – the Adrina Thorpe vocalled ‘Who Will Find Me’ – prompted Armin van Buuren to proclaim it as his ‘favourite track of 2007′!
His remix credit-roll reads like a veritable ‘who’s who’ of EDM. Shah has reworked tracks for legendary vocalists like Sarah McLachlan and Nadia Ali. He’s also remixed tunes for a litany of trance-masters including (take a deep breath!) Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Mark Norman, York, Cosmic Gate, Josh Gabriel, Johan Gielen, System F, The Thrillseekers, Solarstone, Three Drives, Matt Darey & Oceanlab.
Alongside his DJ Shah moniker, Roger has also produced under a slew of sun-tipped pseudonyms, including High Noon at Salinas, Magic Island, Savannah and Sunlounger. It was under the latter that he released the ‘Another Day on The Terrace’ album in 2007, which shot to No.1 on Dutch iTunes’ ‘all-music-genres’ chart. The Album also spawned two hugely-received singles: ‘In & Out’ & ‘White Sand’. The project become so celebrated that Roger spun it out into a live act, a performance of which was featured on Armada’s ArminOnly DVD. Notably Shah is also one half of ASOT’s Black Pearl (with veteran trance producer Ralph Fridge), Anjuna’s Purple Moods & Blackhole project Global Experience. ‘Going Wrong’, his forthcoming collaboration with Armin van Buuren is set to elevate Shah’s name to the next level.
Though probably known first as a producer, the ‘DJ’ in Shah’s name is far from just a natty tag. Roger has taken his innovative, Balearically-edged sets and live performances as far a field as the USA, China, Greece, Spain, Thailand, France, the UK, Hungary, Turkey, El Salvador & The Netherlands.
Adding further to the ever-mushrooming Shah empire, Roger also runs his own record company, Shah-Music, which is home to his Magic Island Records imprint. Together with Pedro Del Mar, the pair produce & present the top-rated ‘Mellomania’ show and run monthly shows all around the globe.
With a double CD artist concept album (which will include acoustic and club mixes), a new Sunlounger long-player and a DJ Shah Mix Compilation to follow later in the year, 2008 will see Roger-Pierre Shah become one of Armada’s most important artists.
