Sultan + Ned Shepard love a challenge. After a banner year that included several monster releases including their Grammy Nominated remix of Bruno Mars ‘Locked Out of Heaven’, their original song ‘All These Roads” and producing the vocals on David Guetta hit “Bad” with Vassy, they knew there was a bigger opportunity to bring their sound to the world.
The unlikely crossing of paths between two classically trained musicians at a show over ten years ago has blossomed into the successful DJ, producing, and remixing team Sultan + Ned Shepard. Using their vast knowledge of all musical genres, the Montreal duo has created a melodic blend of rock, pop, and house that has received worldwide acclaim from fans and critics alike. Sultan + Ned Shepard’s innovative approach, easily-accessible sound and unforgettable live sets have allowed the team to quickly establish themselves at the forefront of the house music scene.
Few producers have managed to maintain their studio output with such stamina and consistency as Sultan + Ned Shepard. On the studio front, they were tagged by Beatport as the “kings of the progressive scene” with countless chart-topping productions and remixes including their collaboration with Funkagenda on Past Dreaming, and Crimson Sun featuring Grammy winners Dirty Vegas. They also became one of 2011’s most in-demand remixers with their unique take on Kaskade’s Fire In Your New Shoes, Tiesto and Calvin Harris’ Century, and Morgan Page’s Fight For You, amongst others.
Continuing their hot streak, Sultan and Ned collaborated with the “Queen of Clubs” Nadia Ali, releasing Call My Name. This smash hit peaked at #5 on the Billboard Dance Chart, #2 on the UK Music Chart and #1 on the Beatport Electro chart, and in the process cemented its status as one of this year’s anthems, with major club and radio support through the US and Europe. Following up on the success of Call My Name, Sultan & Ned teamed up with Dutch superstar Fedde Le Grand to create the unstoppable monster anthem Running. Already reaching the Top Ten on Beatport, it has received praise and support from some of the top DJs in the world, including the pied-piper of dance music, BBC Radio One legend Pete Tong.
In addition to their stellar productions, they've gained international praise for their live sets, hitting major venues and festivals across the globe. After launching Harem Nights at the world renowned Stereo Nightclub in Montreal, Sultan + Ned Shepard toured extensively across the world, rocking dance floors at festivals such as Dance Valley (Amsterdam), Global Gathering (Kiev & St. Petersburg), Creamfields (Peru) and Sunburn (India) as well as the world’s leading nightclubs like Ministry of Sound (UK), Green Valley (Brazil), Pacha (Argentina, Egypt, Germany) and the ultimate venue, Privilege (Ibiza). With dates supporting David Guetta on his tour across Canada, an unforgettable live performance featuring Nadia Ali at LIV nightclub in Miami and an action packed, tent-rocking experience at Ultra Music Festival, their shows have proven to be truly epic events.
With no signs of slowing down Sultan + Ned Shepard took to the road. In March 2013 they were chosen to embark on the ambitious 11 city Road to Ultra Bus Tour with Fedde Le Grand which will crescendo when they perform on the main stage of the Ultra Music Festival in Miami along with Swedish House Mafia, Nervo, Sunnery & Ryan Marciano and others. Compound that with their hit remixes of Tegan & Sara’s ‘Closer’ and their Grammy Nomination for Bruno Mars ‘Locked Out of Heaven” there is no stopping these DJ/Producer powerhouses.
With the success of the previous year you would think Sultan + Ned Shepard would consider relaxing but they were ready for a new direction and adventure. Signing their new residencies at New City Gas in Montreal, HQ in Atlantic City and The Light in Las Vegas and premiering their new #PlusLife show. Not to mention performing on the main stages of TomorrowWorld and Mysteryland. 2014 brings a slew of fresh releases. Including musical collaborations with their most varied group of talent to date. Sultan + Ned Shepard have put their imprint on work with Tiesto, Junior Sanchez, Boxer Rebellion, an original with Tegan & Sara and many others, but the year is only half through and All These Roads lead to Sultan + Ned Shepard.
