Roger Shah invites all of us to join him on another sonic journey through the blissful summer atmosphere of Ibiza on Magic Island Vol. 10!


Roger Shah offered trance fans a journey back in 2008 with the debut of his Magic Island mix series. An ode to the one and only Magic Island, the compilation centers on the mood and atmosphere of the Ibiza music scene over the decades. Since 2008 the mixes have run the gamut of Roger’s own numerous aliases to Chimera State, Der Mystik, Fast Distance, and Ciaran McAuley early on in the series. As the tales wove deeper into the heart of trance fans, we saw tracks by Dimension, Ronny K, Brian Laruso, and Dirkie Coetzee join in the fray.

Now, a couple of years removed from the last iteration, Roger Shah brings a new three-mix format into the equation for the tenth volume of Magic Island. The first two are unsurprisingly magic – honed and etched into the stone fabric of blending the best of the white island of the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean. The fearless atmosphere of Roger Shah’s well-distilled lounge and club aesthetics plays through brilliantly.

On these two, Roger Shah taps on some familiar faces to join in the fray: Dennis Sheperd, Kristina Sky, Raul Pablo Sanchez, David Broaders, and Sergey Shabanov. There are of course new names that dot the mixes as well: Yelow, Sunflare, Cores & Zaffarano, Dominik Novak and Andy Cain all offer handiwork of their talents into the mix.

For mix three though, Roger went reflective. In his own words: “As we have now reached ten editions of ‘Magic Island’, I wanted to do something special and went down the memory lane of the previous nine to pick a kind of personal best-of for a series-to-date celebrating mix.” So he did just that – selecting, shall we say, the greatest hits of his catalog of music over the past ten mixes. For those who never plunged into the tranquil waters of Magic Island or Roger’s esteemed back catalog, the third mix will be a treasure to cherish and listen to.

Magic Island Vol. 10 is out now on Black Hole Recordings and fans can grab their own copies including physical editions. I recommend finding a cool drink (say a Mojito or a strawberry-mint spritzer if you can’t enjoy the alcohol at the time) and find a nice spot to enjoy the softness of the sun as we embark into the summer. We can’t all journey to Ibiza yet, but we can always keep a slice of it close by thanks to Roger Shah and the Magic Island experience he’s given us over the decades.
