Roger Shah presents Sunlounger – Balearic Beauty

Roger Shah presents Sunlounger - Balearic BeautyNow perhaps considered the consummate master of Balearically-inclined music, this August sees the return of electronic music composer Roger Shah’s best-known sobriquet. Three years on from his last Sunlounger excursion, Shah is ready with a new wave of captivating sun-tipped audio, all primed to take the world’s lounges, chillout areas and more cultured dancefloors subtly by storm.

‘Balearic Beauty’ brings to life 14 new Sunlounger recordings. Through them Roger has involved the vocal talents of many, including ‘A Beach Side of Life’ album alumni Inger Hansen, Yoav (of ‘Beautiful Lie’ fame) and EDM singer/songwriter/hit-maker JES. Also on board are an ensemble of newly discovered male and female vox talent, including Sason Bishope Parry, Chase, Alexandra Badoi, Kingseyes and Suzie Del Vecchio. Arriving in its now customary Album and Chillout versions, ‘Balearic Beauty’ picks up exactly where ‘Beach Side’ left off… So bring your pulse rate to resting, find your spot in the sun, hit recline and prepare for the Lounger.

“Balearic Beauty’s list of strength areas is considerable. It’s singing and song-writing work (and the stylistic breadth between each track) is impressive. The pace is beautifully measured and admirably Roger is discernably making regular use of live instrumentation at every turn.” – MIXMAG September Album of the Month

Andy Duguid  & Audrey Gallagher present “In This Moment”Engaging the vocals of Audrey Gallagher for his new release ‘In This Moment’, Andy recently unveiled the track as his follow up to the Julie Thompson collaboration ‘Skin & Bones’. For this new package, Andy brought Karanda and Philippe El Sisi onboard for some heavy duty, speaker-smacking remixes of the track. In tandem with production of ‘In This Moment’ Andy recently announced that he is working on a new artist album, following up to 2008’s ‘Believe’.

Since his ‘Hypocrisy’ debut in 2007, Andy Duguid has become a name of fame in the world of EDM. The Scotsman’s work has led to an impressive range of remixes and singles with ‘Don’t Belong’ and ‘Wasted’ making it onto Tiësto’s In Search of Sunrise 6 and 7 and ranking among his some of his most significant achievements. Add to that the acclaimed artist album ‘Believe’ and the mix compilations ‘Miracle Moments’ and ‘After Dark Sessions 100’ and be in no doubt that we’re talking about a prolific artist whose career is in marked accession. Earlier this year Andy was asked by Emilio Fernandez to produce his upcoming album ‘Suite 16’ and he’s also just reworked Betsie Larkin‘s hit single ‘No Substitute For You’.
