I can't still process the news. I saw right after I finished work that he passed at 46 years. It really hit me hard to see such an amazing artist leave so soon.

So much amazing music though the years... What hits hard is he barely has any social media following which is so sad for such a huge influence on trance music.

R.I.P.

Hm, that’s sad news.

He had a chart hit in Holland with ‘Another World’ which is quite nice. The 2nd Dimension is indeed great too just as Live 4 Music. This Is My Sound is also a nice powerful (commercial) trancer.

In the more ‘real trance’ genre a good one is Stranger on This Planet (Shog 2Faces Mix). And Ocean Drive.

Btw I though DJ Shog productions were (co?) produced by Nic Chagal from Cosmic Gate.

It's very possible he worked with him because Be the One reminds me precisely of Nic Chagal/Markus Shultz early deeper progressive sound.

He was alright, he had his moments but, for the most part, he was never really much my cup of tea, but it's still sad news, of course.

he worked for 'Sony BMG' and was responsible for the 'Dream Dance' CD compilations tracks selection (2005-today).. he also had his popular 'Technics DJ Set' CD mix series (2001-2008).

His tracks were produced by 'Nic Chagall' (2002-2008).. after 2008 was his stuff mostly produced by 'Torsten Stenzel' (York), they had together also a small label called '7th Sense Records'.

Here a 23 years old 'Dj Shog' in a dj mix footage from 1999:
