On stage, clad in his trademark white, he is impossible to miss or mistake. Wireless keyboard in one hand, an ever-ready clutch of his own productions in the other, his live crowd-interactive performances have brought a new apex experience for club and festival goers worldwide.

In 2009 this unequalled approach was reflected in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 chart, where he moved up from his ‘08 debut position of no.58 to no.21. As a music producer he’s scaled the heights of national charts and with 5 artist albums & compilations released in the last 2 years alone, he is very possibly the most prolific trance musician working today. His name is Roger Shah…   

In late 2008 Shah took the decision to change his artist name. Dropping the ‘DJ’ prefix, he revised it to Roger Shah – a move that signalled a move away from straightforward DJ sets.

His successive live-on-stage more concert themed ones have brought a sea change to how trance music is presented to an audience.

Many countries around the world have already born witness to this, among them Mexico, Sydney, Ibiza, Argentina, Ukraine, Poland, & India, with Roger performing at tent-pole events including the ASOT400, I Love Kiev, Gatecrasher’s NYE & Judgement Sundays.

In 2007 Armin named Shah’s ‘Who Will Find Me’ release as his favourite track of 2007. Having heard the demo of its follow up, Van Buuren saw massive crossover potential in the track and made contact in early 2008 to ask if Shah would like to collaborate on it. The result was the Chris Jones song ‘Going Wrong’… A national top 5 smash in The Netherlands, the track went on to become one of the biggest selling trance singles of the year.

From there, Magic Island Records – Shah’s primary label moved from his own stable to that of one of Armin’s industry-leading Armada Music.

After having been labelled as one of the top-selling artists on Armada, the move toward the Dutch master dance label has proven to be a successful one for Roger, and we can only imagine what tomorrow will bring.

Its been a long hard road for Roger Shah, but through his hard work in the studio and one of a kind live performances, this fast rising trance superstar is blazing a trail only a few have travelled before him, and the top is only a few steps ahead.
