Roger Shah’s reputation in the international EDM scene spans over 20 years, with a track record of more than 500 releases on some of the largest and most successful international record labels like Sony, EMI, Universal and Warner, as well as all leading EDM labels such as Armada, Black Hole, Ministry Of Sound, Kontor and Ultra.
As a producer he has worked with and produced for artists such as Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Oakenfold, Sarah MacLachlan, Ferry Corsten, Kosheen, Bryan Adams and Moya Brennan, who is best known for her works with Hollywood producers like Hans Zimmer. Roger’s unique live performances have been rewarded for five consecutive years in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll and received a double EMPO nomination for Best Trance & Progressive DJ and Best Radio Show.
He is probably the only EDM artist who works directly for Disney in Hollywood as a composer and who is negotiating soundtrack deals for film projects in 2015. With his unique, globally renowned Balearic music style, he not only celebrates great success as a solo artist but also under various monikers. The most prominent alias is his Sunlounger project, with which he had chart entries on almost every continent. Roger releases most of his productions on his own Magic Island imprint with global sub-licenses. It is also the name of his famous weekly radio show, which is broadcasted on dozens of FM stations across the globe. He had chart success in the United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, Mexico and many other countries. The fact that Roger harvested more than 90 million views on Youtube and hosted thousands of live performances all over the world are the logical result.
Sunlounger is without doubt Roger’s best-known nom de plume. It was under this handle that he released the “Another Day on The Terrace” long-player in 2008. It reached No.1 on the Dutch iTunes’ all-music-genres chart and included the single “White Sand”, which is still considered one of the biggest EDM classics of the last decade. In 2009 Roger released the Sunlounger follow-up album “Sunny Tales”, featuring the acclaimed single “Lost” – a track that took the illustrious ‘Single of 2008’ title on the ASOT radio show and reaped numerous #1 airplay positions across the globe. The third Sunlounger album, “The Beach Side of Life”, was released in 2010 and his latest longplayer “Balearic Beauty” which entered the ITunes Top 30 in 50+ countries including multiple number 1 spots as well as number 1 airplay chart results.
He recently released his “Magic Island Vol. 5” mix album. Which was originally meant to be a mix album featuring forthcoming releases on his own record label as well as external tracks turned into a 50% Roger Shah artist album with many new upfront releases and productions of the man himself. The album peaked again Top 30 in dozens of countries including multiple Top 10 chart positions.
On stage he is impossible to miss. Wireless keyboard in one hand, an ever-ready clutch of his own productions in the other, his live, crowd-interacting performances have brought an entirely new experience to clubs, arenas and festivals worldwide with main stage and headline performances at some of the biggest festivals across the globe including the Ultra Music Festival, A State Of Trance or Gatecrasher to name but a few!
