Lady Gaga Writing and Producer Announces Free EP

(Mango) White Shadow, who co-wrote and co-produced nine tracks on Lady Gaga's most recent album Born This Way, will release his first EP of original music on August 1st.

The six-track EP, called I'm Killing Me, will be available for free at www.djwhiteshadow.com . Fans who visit the site now can register to receive the EP on August 1st. The following week, White Shadow will kick off his first national tour on August 10th, performing on the electronic music IDentity Festival tour.

"America is the birthplace of electronic dance music," said White Shadow. "Techno and house are heartland music, straight out of Detroit and Chicago. I'm excited to be traveling all over the country, playing the music I love and was raised on."

White Shadow recorded I'm Killing Me earlier this summer in order to give fans attending Identity a little taste to what to expect of his live show -- which is much more aggressive and harder than the pop music he created with Lady Gaga. In addition to his own material, he will be spinning edits of songs he loves. Rest assured, you will be dancing.

White Shadow (aka Paul Blair) spent his youth on a farm in Ohio and in Detroit, alternately surrounded by country music and KISS anthems. He moved to Japan when he was 17 and started DJing regularly. When he returned home to Detroit a few years later, White Shadow continued to sharpen his skills and define his own sound as an artist. He played countless parties, bars and events, eventually becoming a sought after DJ in and outside of the Motor City. He is currently based in Chicago and has created residencies in some of the Second City's best clubs, spinning his own brand of dance, hip hop and house. White Shadow has played in cities all over the world, including Las Vegas, NYC, LA, Barcelona, London, Miami and Milan. Corporate clients like Playboy, Louis Vuitton, Google, Nike, Marc Jacobs and Guinness regularly employ him to get their events popping. In the summer of 2010, Lady Gaga discovered what many had already known -- White Shadow knows how to make people dance. After hearing a mixtape he put together, she hand-picked him to contribute to Born This Way. So, he left the DJ booth for Gaga's production studio and spent nearly a year writing, producing, editing and touring with her while making the album.

While he is focused on his own music and tour this summer, White Shadow continues to write and produce with other A-list artists. He will be releasing free singles on his website through January and has begun work on a full-length album of his own, which he is planning to release in early 2012.
