Fast-rising Middle East dance pop producer teams up with Zeskullz. The Dual Personality and Tara Rautenbach release “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, DualPersonality and fellow UAE artist Tara Rautenbach for his new single “No HardFeelings.”
The cross-Atlantic collaboration with Zeskullz comes after Shaun’s remix of Zeskullz’ “Watch Me”, which hit the Billboard charts earlier this year. Zeskullz is already a well-known artist in the US signed to Armada Music and Diplo’s Mad Decent label.
“No Hard Feelings” is the pair’s low-slung, beach-pop follow up. It has already been picked up for heavy rotation by MTV Worldwide. Additionally, it has seen a global release thanks to Universal ME.
Representing the UAE
Impressively, Shaun Warner’s career has progressed without a flaw in the last few years with millions of streams across Spotify and Anghami per year. Consequently, he has several genre-crossing albums to his name. And, this latest collaboration is yet another big step forward for the UAE star setting off on 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.
Where Shaun Warner come from?
Shaun Warner is a UAE-based, Irish artist whose work spans disco, pop, house and on occasion, drum n’ bass. His music is all carefully crafted with smooth vocals and lush synth sounds.
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. He followed that with a stint DJing in Dublin at venues including The Odeon and Sin.
In 2007 Shaun left Ireland and spent several years in Australia. He performed at some 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. During that time Shaun began creating his own music in earnest.
Rise with Universal Music MENA
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’s remixes have also gained international acclaim. He has charted in the US Billboard Dance charts 5 times in 2018.
