sharam

Listen to The BPM Festival‘s new podcast from Sharam and get in the BPM groove! He’s going to help end #BPM2015 with a bang at Yoshitoshi’s Showcase (an official BPM closing party) at Blue Parrot Sunday, January 18!

From underground classics like Texi, Get Wild and Don’t Say A Word, to scoring international chart toppers, like PATT (Party All The Time) and The One, Sharam’s musical credits are as dynamic as his DJ sets. His production collaborations include artists such as Kid Cudi, Shakira, Patsy Cline, Chris Martin and Daniel Bedingfield just to name a few. He seamlessly navigates between hypnotic underground sets rooted in his rich history of house and techno, while entertaining younger dance enthusiasts of today with laser like focus and dedication to quality. His motto remains ‘entertain while educate’. His sound is Ibiza in Vegas. His style is limitless.

At Miami Music Week (WMC) 2014 he once again scored one of the most sought after records with his new outing ‘Tripi’ on Seth Troxler’s new labels inaugural release, garnering support from all sides of the industry. Tripi follows his rich history of seminal records like 2013’s On & On featuring the long time collaborator Anousheh that ended up being the #1 Miami Buzz record. He followed that release with “My Way” taking a more techy vocal approach — all part of his upcoming 2nd artist album.

During the Miami conference Sharam rejoined his old buddy Dubfire as the legendary duo “Deep Dish” and performed their first show in over 8 years setting the industry abuzz once again with their set as well as their new single “Quincy”.

Wherever you find Ellen Allien, you find movement. Born in Berlin, living and working in Berlin and Ibiza, one of the planet’s most dynamic party scenes, her artistic home stands for one thing above all: freedom, in every aspect. DJ, musician, label manager, t-shirt designer and creative all-rounder – Ellen Allien has carved out her own space in all these roles, creating a unique universe.

 

Since 1999 she has managed the label BPitch Control in Berlin, as well as the t-shirt range ellen allien. As a DJ she rocks clubs and festivals all around the world. She is a resident at DC10 in Ibiza, Nitsa in Barcelona and Robert Johnson in Offenbach, as well as at major festivals such as Melt in Germany and Name in France, and tours worldwide with BPitch Control events. Her productions have even been performed at temples of modern art such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

 

Most importantly she shares her enthusiasm with others: her creative base and label BPitch Control, her fellow musicians and of course her audience. For a long time now, Ellen Allien has been regarded as a fixed star in the electronic music galaxy. She is an extraordinary creature, a one-of-a-kind artist without whom Berlin’s vibrant electronic club landscape wouldn’t be the same. Fortunately someone thought of a suitably extraterrestrial name for her right at the start of her career: Allien. No name will ever suit her better. Ellen Allien will also be performing at The BPM Festival Circoloco showcase at Mamitas on January 16.

The BPM Festival Podcast 25 – DJ Sneak – BPM Exclusive Mix by The Bpm Festival on Mixcloud


 

One of house music’s true pioneers, DJ Sneak has the passion and drive to keep house music alive. Self-proclaimed House Gangster, Sneak has helped shape the course of dance music since the early 90s; his early music influencing the likes of Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden. His signature sounds – funky filtered disco-influenced house and tough, jacking beats – have revolutionized and redefined house music for well over 15 years.

Having begun his DJ’ing career in 1983, Sneak continues to be at the top of his game: non-stop beat bumpin’ sets are a one of a kind experience in the electronic music circuit, and a barrage of top quality releases over the last 20 years have culminated and just keep on coming. Meanwhile, “House Gangster” is a concept that was inspired from a hotline that in turn created a motive to inspire and increase followers specifically to house music, with “gangster” used in referenced to those who have that undying commitment and passion for house music, bottom line.
