DJ Shog

Real Name:
Sven Greiner
DJ SHOG was born as Sven Greiner in Hamburg on November 8th 1976. In the early nineties, he began to develop his interest in deejaying and electronic music. After performing at school festivals and private parties, SHOG took part in several DJ competitions and got some resident jobs in clubs in Northern Germany.

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.

Together with a producer-team his first Solo-Single 'DJ SHOG - This Is My Sound' arised. Members of this production team of DJ SHOG are Claus Terhoeven, André Wevers and Errik Schmeier, who were also acting - by the way - for projects like Cosmic Gate, Essential DJ-Team, Starsplash and Green Court. DJ Shog has also recently released “The Second Dimension” and “Another World” on Logport Recordings.

In 2005, Sven Greiner started his own Label 7th Sense Records

This guy went from being a superb Hardtrance producer to a great Trance producer to a mainstream donkey after 2012. How do you go from mixing Technics DJ Set and compiling great Dream Dance CD's to selling out and making such pathetic music. Look at what Dream Dance has become. Look at what you have become Shog!

DJ Shog is one of many producers & DJs that develop a style that can be recognized in all of their tracks/mixes. Consistant style can more often be considered irritating, but with DJ Shog the style works. All of his tracks are melodic and very uplifting. Some of his signatures are breakbeats integrated with the standard 4/4 trance kick, synths, and basslines. Though many believe that his style is too repetitive, I personally think that all of his tracks are good enough to keep me wanting more. Some of his better tracks are "Rush Hour", a fast-paced, super-uplifting trancer, "Another World", which has one of the best melodies I've ever heard, and "Running Water", which may have cheesy vocals, but the breakdown sends chills down your spine. Aside from the music he produces, his mixing skills are flawless. Make sure you check out his Technics DJ series, a great example of DJ Shog's mixing abilities.
