Happy Halloween


It's been quite a while since my last post. Ever since graduating from Full Sail University in late June, things have been a bit hectic for me.

I will be releasing a new track in November, and I am currently working on a remix for a project.

Have a wonderful Halloween! Shan

Liquid Sand (Original Mix)


My new track, "Liquid Sand," is now available for free download on Soundcloud. I meant for it to also be downloaded on Reverbnation, but it is currently tied up during a limited promo.

I hope you enjoy it!

Blessings, Shan

Preview of New Track


My latest track, "Liquid Sand," is still in development, but you can hear the fourth version on Reverbnation and Soundcloud now. It is the first track I've produced in several weeks. College is keeping me busy but not for long.

I am currently working on my final project at Full Sail University Online. I decided to pursue a career in Film Scoring and hope to find projects in the near future. I will continue to create electronic dance music in my spare time, since I still have such a passion for the genre.

Peace, Shan

"Passionation" Remix and Other News


It's been a while since I've done an update. My time at Full Sail University is coming to an end, and I have been extremely busy with my final classes. I'm definitely going to miss it!

Two bits of news:

I am one of three winners in Dirk Deafner's "Passionation" remix contest. Please download the free EP at http://www.thedeafnerfx.com - Excellent work by DJ Reckless Ryan and Masta Buizness!

I also collaborated with Schillerschule (Charly Meier) on a Techno track to be released on June 1st. I will update with link when available. The track is called "Vengeance," a complete rework of the Progressive House track I did with the same name.

I will update again soon!

Best, Shan

Electronic Sound


I have been getting things ready for graduation in July, but I still make time for my EDM productions when possible. I hope my latest track, "Phobophobic," is enjoyable - It was certainly fun to produce!

I have submitted to "Electronic Sound" - I am thankful for such opportunities on Reverbnation.

I will be in the process of producing a slightly more aggressive sound for my next track. Please be sure to look back within a couple of weeks for it.

Best to all and peace! Shan

The End of Spring Break


My Spring Break at Full Sail Online is coming to an end this weekend. Once I start back I will continue until I graduate in July. How time flies!

I hope you enjoy my latest track. I feel like I channeled Pleasurekraft while producing it. I'm beginning a new one - This time I am going for an Electro House vibe.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Best, Shan

Update - March 20, 2013


I have been rather busy lately with class work at Full Sail Online, so my next track will be delayed a bit.

In the meantime, I recommend checking out Dirk Deafner's music: https://www.reverbnation.com/dirkdeafner

I did a remix for his contest on his website: http://www.thedeafnerfx.com

I'll be around! Shan

Music For Good (World Vision Organization)


While I am reluctant to sell my music at this time, I have decided to sell my latest track, "Sketches of Trance," for Reverbnation's "Music For Good" charity project. 50% of the profit will go to the World Vision organization (http://www.worldvision.org).

Blessings, Shan

New Trance Track


I'm currently in the studio working on a new Trance track. I do enjoy Trance, but there is such a passion amongst Trance fans that I feel slightly intimidated in working in this genre. That said, I always love a challenge.

I hope to release a final version mid-week. You can hear a rough draft of it now at: https://soundcloud.com/shannon-mcdowell/rough-sketches-of-trance-raw

Have a wonderful week ahead! Shan
