Susana, Shogun, Brave
It's been nearly ten years since the world was first introduced to Dutch vocalist Susana, and now she's set to release her sophomore album "Brave" on May 25. The songstress collaborated with some of the world's most talented producers, Max Graham, Aurosonic, Ernesto vs Bastian, Leon Bolier, Shogun, Alexander Popov, Daniel Kandi and many more. From the deep and darker shades of progressive, lush and easy-flowing ambient to the uplifting melodic touch of trance, there's no genre in dance that can't carry the voice of Susana.
One of Armada's hottest talents, Shogun brings his Signature Sound of sweeping melodies and emotional undertones to the track 'Only You.' Beatsmedia reviews, "A track garnering much attention right now is 'Only You' with Andrew Chen aka Shogun. Shogun injects a big shot of emotions, which offer up a hearty break while highlighting the soulful expressions in the lyrics. However, as fully expected Shogun goes on to whisk up the tempo and uncover a strong production intent on moving the floor."
"Brave" will be released on Armada on May 25. Pre-orders are available now on iTunes.
Going from listening to one of your favorite DJs as a mere fan to becoming one of their go-to remixers might seem like a distant dream for most electronic music producers but it's the reality for Andrew Chen, aka Shogun. In just a few short years, the American DJ and producer has become a favorite of Armin van Buuren and was the first Asian DJ to be signed to his S107/Armada record label. Currently standing at #122 on the DJ Mag Top 100 list--a massive leap from #231 only one year before--Shogun has firmly cemented himself as one of the world's top up-and-coming trance and progressive DJs.
