DJ SHOG’s breakthrough was the double-CD compilation series “Technis DJ Set”. The first CD is mixed by himself, the second one by well-known guests like Cosmic Gate, Dumonde, Talla 2XLC, Green Court or Nic Chagall. Since 2001 each release is followed by a club-tour, where DJ SHOG met his current producers and someday they brought up the idea of recording a solo single.
With “This Is My Sound” (Top60 in Germany and Top40 in Great Britain), “The 2nd Dimension” (Top60 in Germany) and “Another World” DJ SHOG solidified career. The single remained in the Top40 for nine weeks and in for more than three month on the German charts
The follow-up singles, “Live 4 Music” and “Running Water”, reached the Top40 and Top50 and were part of the set of many well-known international DJs. In 2006 DJ SHOG released his first solo album, “My Sound”. It entered the German charts at #55 and remained there for four weeks. Some weeks later, at the DJ Meeting in Duisburg, DJ SHOG was voted as #3 in the category “Trance DJ National”, surpassed only by Paul van Dyk and ATB.
After the first charts-single “Stranger On This Planet” from the new album, also the second album“2Faces” entered the german album charts in summer 2007. “Another World Part II” from the second album was the first single in Germany ever, that reached the top100 only by downloads.
In addition to mix tracks, Sven Greiner also diligently produces them. Together with E-Cutz he produced the three hymns “Summer Sound System” (2002), “Alive&Kickin’” (2003) and “The Golden 10” (2004) for Germany’s biggest Open Air dance event, Nature One. Moreover he is jointly responsible for various other projects.
With the remix-works of renowned acts like DJ Sammy, Cappella, CJ Stone, Three Drives, Ayu, DJ Tatana, Ian van Dahl, Lasgo, Filo&Peri DJ SHOG has become an essential part of the global dance scene.
Recently DJ SHOG also produced some remixes under the name of his side project 2Faces, to show his second, more progressive and trance sound face. These mixes (“Beam pres. Michelle Aragon – Silent Tears”, “Kuffdam&Plant – Dreammakers”, “Bossanova – Stonecold” among others) have been played by DJs like Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren.
