The story behind the sound.
Having achieved nearly every accolade associated with the elite, German producer and DJ Dennis Sheperd has broken through the scene as a staple to his fans and colleagues alike. The Berlin-based Trance and Progressive enthusiast is ready to take the lead and spring forward with innovative ideas, genre-bending music and a relentless amount of energy.
Originally from Essen, Germany, Dennis kicked off his career in 2007 – the year he set the tone with his ‘A Tribute To Life’ original. Not only was the track a big hit and supported by all major DJ’s of Trance, it also became the musical embodiment of his credo. The beginning of his story. A statement underlining his unconditional and positive outlook on life itself, empowered by music.
In 2011 Dennis Sheperd brought his fans the ever-popular anthem of ‘Fallen Angel’, which shot straight to #1 on Beatport’s Trance chart. His sound caught the attention of Talla 2XLC, Ronski Speed and Markus Schulz, all of which signed up for a collaboration with the rising star.
Next to being in high-demand for his remix skills, having remixed tracks for Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, tyDi and Markus Schulz, he’s fostered an impressive list of vocal collaborations as well. Christina Novelli, JES, Ana Criado, Sylvia Tosun, Lady V, Jonathan Mendelsohn, Katty Heath and Molly Brancroft are just some of the talented musicians that have been part of the musical story Dennis has created. Most recently his collab with Sara Lynn, ‘Dive’ climbed into the top ten on Beatport.
Sharing his original works is one of things that drives Dennis to travel the globe and meet his fans. Spinning his unique blend of Progressive Trance in no less than 30 countries, he has been able to play at many of the best festivals and clubs around the world including Ministry Of Sound in London, Exchange Club in Los Angeles and the A State Of Trance festivals.
With new productions and gigs all across the planet, Dennis Sheperd looks nowhere else but ahead.
Dennis has released two physical albums (of which one was the first ever fully crowdfunded Trance album), mixed two compilations and released over 44 singles the 12 years of his career.
