REVIEW: Shane 54 - Paradise ft. Jenny Jordan out on Nettwerk

Nettwerk Records is pleased to announce the signing of Shane54 to its growing and diverse roster.

Shane 54
Shane54 was one half of Hungarian DJ/production duo, Myon & Shane 54 (MS54). In June 2016, the duo announced that they were parting ways to pursue solo music endeavors.  Today, Shane 54 makes his solo debut both as an artist with "Paradise (feat. Jenny Jordan)" and as a DJ with a live set at Exchange LA joining BT and Late Night Alumni in the night’s line-up.

Since forming in 2008, MS54 went on to achieve success in the international dance music scene.  MS54 have remixed and/or crafted charting singles on the Billboard Top 200, number ones at Billboard Dance and Beatport, and produced and remixed tracks for Lana Del Rey, Tiësto, Above & Beyond, Tove Lo, Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Demi Lovato, Jessie J, BT and NERVO, to name a few.  Myon & Shane54 also created one of the most highly regarded radio shows with over 15 million weekly listeners worldwide, now titled "International Departures w/ Shane54" (formerly “International Departures”).
“’Paradise’ was co-written with Kyler England, who worked with MS54 on ‘Summer of Love.’ With my solo material, I want to take the best of what we did as MS54 when we started, but give it my uncompromising vision. More than ever, the fans deserve more. What’s most exciting is this single is just the start. I’m incredibly excited to be working with Nettwerk to release my new music. As a songwriter and producer, it’s an amazing feeling to be with a label that has such a long-standing reputation of supporting songwriters of every genre,” says Shane.
The remixers were hand-selected to fill the wide spectrum of tastes within the electronic music community - from the Uplifting Trance style of M.I.K.E. Push (as premiered by Armin Van Buuren on A State of Trance) to the big room EDM sounds of Revealed Recordings artist Maddix, and to the deep underground-inspired remix from Gai Barone. The Rafaël Frost remix transcends genre and will appeal to EDM, Trance and House lovers alike.

Shane54 is the latest addition to Nettwerk’s expanding label roster, which includes artists like Hermitude, The Veils, Passenger, Savoir Adore, Boxed In, Mr Little Jeans, Alyx Ander as well as catalogue artists like Junkie XL, Ladytron, Delerium and Tiësto.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The beloved Shane 54 presents his first magical solo single called Paradise that can be described as melodic dreamy progressive trance with strong prog house elements as well. Jenny's performance is truly emotional and her pop touched singing tone can support the track to crossover to mainstream audiences as well. Chunky grooves, electro infused synths, pulsating basslines and super glowing breakdown with emotional piano chords and warm strings followed by hands in the air synthy packed climax. Rafael Frost as always delivers and on this track he goes on that electro big room spanking trance sound filled with sparkling synths, bouncy drums, razor sharp basslines and incredible breakdown followed by big euphoric climax to get the big festival crowds jumping and bumping. M.I.K.E Push is on the rise again and his remix treatment turns the original into an uplifting euphoric trancer with the dark mysterious edge that we always get from M.I.K.E. Solid arrangement of fat foundation of top basslines and driving drums along with the dark moody epic synths plus the incredible vocals. Get ready to be transcended to another dimension in a climax that will make us scream for sure. Maddix is all about mainstage big room house sound that simply causes mayhem on the dancefloor. Thunderous drums, rough and edgy basslines, epic feel good synths and plenty of madness. Last but not least the always on great shape Gai Barone goes deeper for a beautiful smooth and mysterious journey stripped down of the epic melodies with fantastic sound effects and warmth that radiates all over the place. The breakdown is sparkling filled with colorful synthy riffs that lead to the incredible climax that makes fantastic application of the various synths in order to mesmerise and hypnotise your senses instantly. If you look for purity and crystal clear sounds then this remix will appeal to you. Paradise is such an excellent start for Shane 54 at Nettwerk. #PureGold Love It  [/content]
