Future Entertainment, Silver Entertainment & VLN in conjuction with Masif Saturday's presents Roger Shah - Openminded!? Album Tour
ROGER SHAH [Magic Island / Armada]
On stage, clad in his trademark white, 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 for club and festival goers worldwide. In 2010 this unequalled approach was reflected in DJ Magazine`s Top 100 chart, when he re-entered its top 50 for a third year running, landing at #34. As a music producer he`s scaled the heights of national charts and with 6 artist albums & compilations released in the last 3 years alone. He is very possibly the most prolific trance musician working today.
The follow up to his 2008 artist album Songbook will be touching down on the 29th of July 2011! Roger has revealed that the album will be titled Openminded!? and will feature many of Rogers regular vocal team-ups - Chris Jones, Inger Hansen and Adrina Thorpe among them. In a major branchout though, it will also include some other world-class singer-songwriter talent. Included among them will be Sian Evans from Kosheen, Moya Brennan from Clannad, Carla Werner (the voice behind Oakenfolds Southern Sun) Salma Ross (winner of Armada Musics discover a singer competition) and Maltese sensation Ira Losco.
May 30th will see the release of Rogers brand new track with singer sensation Moya 'Marie' Brennan. Known to millions as the voice behind Chicanes anthemic Saltwater, Roger got in contact with her having been blown away by one of her live classical concerts.
The result is 'Morning Star' - an incredible sun-tipped track whose influences come together somewhere between County Donegal and the Balearics. DJ Mag has already called it a coup as well as saying that Morning Star is both poignant and haunting. Mixmag meanwhile summed it up as perfectly grafting the Celtic twang of the uilleann pipes to Shahs regulation gauzy Med-head synths. Morning Star is out at the end of the month through Magic Island Records.
