In 1999, Pakistani-German DJ and producer Roger Shah began making a name for himself throughout Germany, and within a relatively short time—just four years—he found himself signed to the Virgin Records imprint Nebula. His first non-domestic release, “High”, garnered him attention throughout Europe, and in 2007, Armin Van Buuren called Shah’s track “Who Will Find Me” his favorite of the year. Upon listening to the demo for Shah’s next release, Van Buuren asked to collaborate, and the resulting track “Going Wrong” ended up being one of the year’s highest selling trance singles. Subsequently, Shah was signed to Van Buuren’s label Armada.
Over the course of his career, Shah has worked under a number of aliases, the best known of which is Sunlounger. It was under this moniker that he released his most popular tracks. His album Another Day on the Terrace raced to the top of the Dutch iTunes charts. The following year he released Sunny Tales, which featured a number of successful singles, including “Lost”, which was named Tune of the Year by Van Buuren’s radio show A State of Trance.
Beyond his original work, Shah is also known for remixing tracks by artists such as Sarah McLachlan, Tiestö , Van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, and countless others.
