Magic Island Recordings is the Balearic Trance/Progressive Trance label, founded in 2005 by Roger P. Shah, under the motto "Music for Balearic people", as a sublabel of Shah-Music.
Roger Shah has an over 20 years reputation within the international EDM scene with a release record of more than 500 tracks on some of the largest and most successful international record companies. Among them Sony, EMI, Universal and Warner, as well as all leading EDM labels such as Armada, Black Hole, Ministry Of Sound, Kontor and Ultra. As a producer he has worked with and for artists such as Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Oakenfold, Sarah MacLachlan, Ferry Corsten, Kosheen, Bryan Adams or Moya Brennan who is best known for her works with Hollywood producers such as Hans Zimmer. Roger's unique live performances are rewarded with a fifth consecutive year in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll and a double EMPO nomination for Best Trance & Progressive DJ and Best Radio Show.
He is probably the only EDM artist who is working directly for Disney in Hollywood as a composer and who has already signed soundtrack deals for numerous film projects in 2013. With the globally unique Balearic music style he celebrates great success as a solo artist but also with various monikers. Most prominent alias is his Sunlounger project with which he had chart entries on almost every continent. He releases most of his productions on his own Magic Island imprint with global sub-licenses. It is also the name of his famous weekly radio show which is broadcasted in dozens of FM stations across the globe. He had chart success in Germany, England, Netherlands and Mexico, to name a few. More than 80 million views on Youtube and thousands of live performances all over the world speak for it.
Magic Island has the idea and philosophy to combine all his activities under one trademark and to be more than just a music company, maybe more a lifestyle company with different parts.
Magic Island Records is the plattform for a lot of upcoming productions and collaborations Roger is doing with a lot of his buddies from the international edm scene. He also signes as A&R new talents or new projects which are following his own personal music taste and unique feeling of his so called “balearic” style.
As a solo artist and also for his famous “Sunlounger” project he is signed to Armada Music, (the company behind the worlds number #1 DJ Armin van Buuren), which is probably the best and biggest indepented music company around the world. So it makes sense and is a logical development of the great collaboration Shah had with Armada over the last 2 years, to join Magic Island Records as a sub label to Armada. So they will take care of all activities as marketing, promotion, releasing and licencing.
On April 7, 2008 it was announced that Magic Island Records has joined Armada Music B.V. As of 2013 Magic Island Records is part of Black Hole Recordings.
