Life is one long, roller-coasting, Magic Island-induced experience for Roger Shah. He's constantly on a mission, be it a veritable Balearic mission, to take his intoxicating trance sounds across the world, to far-flung or near, to boldly go… well, you get the picture. "I'm happy about my life. I have the chance to live my dream and passion - even I have to say that my whole life changed within the past two years, but I'm very happy about the development," says Roger. Releasing a wave of hedonistic tunes through his Magic Island imprint, 2010 has been even more spanking than last year, when he made his second appearance in the Top 100. "It's a vote from the fans and music lovers from all over the world, it shows me that I'm not that wrong with what I'm doing," Roger tells us. The tone and pace are set with the imminent release of his next Sunlounger album, tying in nicely with intense tour action between now and March 2011. "It's going to be the biggest project in my career so far, working with many different artists from all over the world," he explains.
