This isn’t his first time and it won’t be his last as Shane 54 is back and better than ever with his second solo release, “First Time”!
It began with “Paradise”. His first solo single since leaving the Hungarian DJ/Producer duo that was Myon & Shane 54. After the track was received with praise and open arms by all of Shane 54’s adoring fans, we would all sit back and patiently wait to hear what he would come up with next. Well, the wait is over because today, Shane 54’s second solo single, “First Time” has officially been released! Just as “Paradise” is a glorious nod to the vocal stunners, “First Time” offers up an introspective lyrical melody paired with a driving rhythm, full of main stage energy and power. I dare you not to sing along to this one! And what’s more? You can catch “First Time” when it makes its broadcast premiere on Armin Van Buuren’s weekly show, A State Of Trance, for which Shane 54 will be making a special appearance as the in-studio guest on episode #814! And that happens today so, tune in!! Yes, 2017 is shaping up to be a pretty amazing year for this wildly talented dance music maestro.

With such an infectious lyric and a beat that you can’t help but vibe to, it may come as no surprise that there were a few who just had to get their hands on this track. Taking the lead on remix duties we see Armada’s own David Gravell, as well as up and comers Simon Alex and Kukuzenko who put their own unique spin on Shane 54’s brainchild. David Gravell kicks off the remix package with an amped up version, adding layers of crunchy and heavy synths that create a powerful drive, allowing the lyrics to balance out with a kick that is to die for. Kukuzenko answers back with a version that flows beautifully from beginning to end. His balance of synths and euphoric melody make this one the perfect choice for an unbridled dance floor groove session. Finally, Simon Alex rounds out the remix package, ushering in his listeners with some really cool drum patterns and chopped up lyrics. With spectacular builds and an infectious drum driven beat, it is impossible not to get lost in the energy that Simon Alex has designed and dished out for your dancing pleasure.

Since splitting up from the duo in June of 2016, Shane 54 has made it his purpose to keep on cutting the scene, holding fast to a steady schedule of touring, working vigorously in the studio, and keeping up to date with his fan favorite weekly radio show International Departures. Already up to episode #372, International Departures was relaunched shortly after the split, inspiring Shane 54 to give away a series of mash-ups (one of the show’s trademarks) directly to his fans, thus culminating in the creation of a Megamix to celebrate the 350th episode; mashing up and mixing over 180 songs into a one hour show! The Megamix was accompanied by a video composed of footage amassed over a 2.5 year period that not only details the track-by-track sequencing of the Megamix, but it also includes highlights such as Shane 54 high-fiving a monkey in Gibraltar and riding high in a helicopter at EDC Las Vegas!
