It was the year 2011, A State of Trance 500 world tour and Shogun presenting his track “Skyfire”. The hit was born. Since that day, it has consistently remained one of the most influential tracks in the new-age trance world. Renowned DJ and producer Andrew Chen aka Shogun, a four-time DJ Mag Top 100 artist, quickly began to make his mark globally, showcasing his talent in both the studio and as a headliner at major music festivals like Tomorrowland, EDC, ULTRA, and A State Of Trance. As the first Asian American on Armada Music, he’s also signed to Blackhole Recordings, Universal, and CMC Music. During the pandemic, Shogun produced over 25 tracks, with four landing on Sony Music. Notably, he released a remix of the Super Mario Bros theme on Bandcamp, donating profits to COVID-19 frontline workers. Remixing for trance legends and collaborating with Grammy-nominated and winning acts, every track of his has secured a spot in the Beatport and iTunes Top 10 charts.
In Andrew’s production and gig portfolio since the pandemic, you’ll discover a diverse range of genres, including a touch of commercial dance music.
