Sharam appeals to both sides of the dance music spectrum — his productions can be all sunshine and rainbows, but his DJ sets and mixes can be straight up banging techno and house. Although he calls Washington DC home, the Sharam flavor could often be classified as pure Miami, and on his latest “On & On” with consistent vocal collaborator Anousheh it’s clear why this was such a big hit during Miami Music Week this year.
Following up on his 2009 Essential Mix of the year, Sharam (of Deep Dish fame) decided to use his second outing on the famed Radio 1 show to give global audiences a two hour snippet of his powerful nine hour set from Brazil’s Warung Beach Club. Warung is widely considered one of the best clubs in the world and largely because of its desolate jungle location, clubbers tend to stay for hours past a normal club outing — making for truly special sets for DJs and fans alike. In the two hour journey, Sharam delivers hard-hitting techno, funky tech house, and tribal grooves perfect for a South American clubbing backdrop.
Best of Instagram is a feature from Dancing Astronaut that showcases our favorite pictures from our favorite DJs on Instragram each week. This week, we’ve got gems from Tiesto, Major Lazer, Steve Angello, and more.
In a recent interview with Mixmag, Dubfire talked about his past joint venture with Sharam on Deep Dish, shelling out details on the release of “a box set which will be a retrospective” of all the tracks, remixes, and compilations that they created as a duo. Together, they were behind some of the famous remixes of our time, as is the case with today’s Weekend Rewind on Danny Tenaglia’s staple house track “Music Is The Answer.”
The track is a signature Deep Dish production, featuring Sharam’s dark progressive roots with Dubfire’s minimal techno glee. “Music Is The Answer” goes back to ’90s house music when Danny Tenaglia was leading the wave of American DJ culture. The 2009 remix is a complete reconstruction, borrowing the prominent vocal segment to bring to fruition a dark, progressive house gem.
After an awe-inspiring pre-opening last night, Marquee NYC is poised to re-establish itself as a preeminent nightlife hotspot in New York City. Slated for its grand opening tomorrow evening, the newly renovated club will feature techno-maestro Dubfire as it’s first high-profile act to grace the space. With future booking such as Sharam and James Zabiela in the coming weeks, it seems the rumors of Marquee designating one night per week to the techier side of electronic music is validated. Tickets for tomorrow night are already sold out, but stay tuned for Marquee’s future lineups – the club is looking to challenge the status quo in NYC.
To commemorate the grand re-opening, Marquee NYC is giving away a custom pair of Diamond Tears headphones. Hop past the break to enter the contest.
Dancing Astronaut was present at Sensation White in Barcelona, Spain yesterday and we can guarantee (if you haven’t been) that it is a can’t miss event. The lineup was of top quality and many people who were not there were dying to be in the action. With the live sets available, at least now you can be part of the music even if it is only through your iPod (thanks Steve Jobs). Mr. White, Wally Lopez, Sharam, Fedde Le Grand, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Daniel & Juan Sanchez brought out their best stuff for this festival. Download every set after the break!
The ex-member of the grammy-winning house duo Deepdish, Sharam, has been hitting the world with his “Get Wild” tour. I was fortunate enough to catch the show at Ruby Skye in San Francisco. Sharam incorporates vocals in a unique way into house music with a more classical delivery from Anousheh Khalili.
