Pedro Del Mar is one half of Germany's leading brethren for dance music and is known and respected for various things. He already had numerous releases in about 60 countries, did different remixes for leading acts and DJs, has two successful radio shows and runs an own record company.
But let's go step by step through his work.
Pedro Del Mar runs two own radio shows on Germany's leading and most important dance radio station "Sunshine Live". After spinning regularly at the stations prime time shows for years he developed together with his brother DJ Shah the concept of a show called "Melomania". Just a few weeks later in 2001 the show started and gained big applause.
After more than one year at the afternoon prime time from 6-8pm, the station had no other possibility than moving the show from afternoon to evening and renewed it from a two to a four hours show.
"Melomania" is today one of the most successful and influencing dance radio shows in Germany. DJs and companies from UK, Belgium, Spain, Italy, USA, Canada, Australia, The Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Japan and the rest of the world are watching the playlists.
But also his second show at the same station has a mass appeal. Each Wednesday from 10-12pm he runs the show "Global Mix" where he broadcastes the world's leading DJs, e.g. Judge Jules, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Marco V, Lange, Timo Maas, Mauro Picotto, DJ Sammy, Paul Oakenfold and a lot more.
Both shows are very unique what made Pedro Del Mar as well as DJ Shah both being a Top 5 radio DJ in Germany.
