Fast-rising Middle East dance pop producer teams up with Zeskullz, The Dual Personality and Tara Rautenbach for ‘No Hard Feelings’ a beach-side summer jam via Universal Music MENA
Billboard Top 100 artist Shaun Warner has teamed up with US producers Zeskullz, Dual Personality and fellow UAE artist Tara Rautenbach for his new single ‘No Hard Feelings.’
The cross-Atlantic collaboration with Zeskullz – a big name US artist signed to Armada Music and Diplo’s Mad Decent label – comes after Shaun’s remix of Zeskullz’ ‘Watch Me’ which hit the Billboard charts earlier this year.
‘No Hard Feelings’ is the pair’s low-slung, beach-pop follow up, and has already been picked up for heavy rotation by MTV Worldwide as well as a global release thanks to Universal ME.
Impressively, Shaun Warner has hardly put a foot wrong in the last few years with millions of streams across Spotify and Anghami a year himself, not to mention several genre-crossing albums to his name. And this latest collaboration is yet another big step forward for the UAE star releasing his global ambitions.
Previously, his track ‘Stay’ was featured on the US Billboard Top 50 chart, making him the first DJ from the UAE to do so.
‘No Hard Feelings’ was released on Universal Music MENA
Shaun Warner is a UAE-based Irish artist whose work spans disco, pop, house and on occasion, drum n’ bass, all carefully crafted around smooth vocals and lush synths.
Shaun originally hails from Menlo in Galway where he started his music career as a DJ in 1998. He quickly moved up the ranks, from supporting local names through to promoting his own club nights, followed by a stint DJing in Dublin at venues including The Odeon and Sin. In 2007 Shaun left Ireland and spent several years in Australia, performing at many of the country’s biggest festivals including Stereosonic, Summafieldayze, Parklife, White Paradise, and Creamfields. Those DJ sets saw him signed as an ambassador for Hed Kandi in Australasia, and it was during this time that Shaun began creating his own music in earnest.
In 2016, Shaun signed a deal with Universal Music MENA to release his debut album, Shaun Warner & Friends which dropped in January 2017. The album outperformed all expectations and made its way to number one on the UAE iTunes
chart as well as cracking the top 50 charts in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
Shaun followed this debut success with three singles released from his second album, Stay: ‘Chasing’ was released in December 2017 and spent eight weeks in the US Billboard Charts Top 50 as well as charting strongly across the Middle East as
well as Australia (9- iTunes) and Denmark (9 - iTunes). The album Stay entered the Irish Charts impressively and made its way to No 13.
Shaun‘s remixes have also been gaining international acclaim and he has charted in the US Billboard Dance charts 5 times in 2018 and as a result is highly in demand.
