“Life works in mysterious ways. One minute you’re doing one thing, then one decision later the whole path of your life has been redrawn” - Sultan

Sultan + Ned Shepard love a challenge. After a banner year that included several monster releases including their single Walls which was featured on Tiësto’s new Club Life Miami compilation, and Somebody to Love - a collaboration with Thomas Sagstad and Steve Smith of Dirty Vegas that was released on their own imprint, Harem Records; 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 an EDM 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, Tiësto and Calvin Harris’ Century, and Morgan Page’s Fight For You, amongst others.

Continuing their hot streak, Sultan and Ned Shepard 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 Shepard 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.

2013 shows no signs of Sultan + Ned Shepard slowing down. The duo have renewed their highly successful residency at XS Nightclub in Las Vegas making them part of an elite DJ few hand-picked for the honor. Not in Vegas? Not to worry Sultan + Ned Shepard have been on touring fire. In March 2013 they 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 Bruno Mars Locked Out of Heaven and Tegan & Sara’s Closer there is no stopping these DJ/Producer powerhouses. [from Sultan + Ned Shepard biography]
