Art Xtreme Media’s The Sweatbox continues with its series of marathon Long Play sets this month up at Lvl 32 and this week it's Sweatbox resident 's turn to take over the music helm.
Obadius’ style has seen quite a bit of change in the past few months – from progressive to melodic and onto the micro house territory. Due partly to his work on the production front, where he deepened his knowledge and understanding of music, it has resulted in a few epic releases – 2 on Manual Records, one on Sweatbox Records and a few others in the making.
Obadius is synonymous with melodicity. Hailing from Tehran, Iran and currently residing in Kuala Lumpur, Obadius has been steadily building a name for himself in the local scene. His music journey started at the age of 17 testing his direction, forming his taste and music principles.
Since it all started back in 2008, a year that marked his move to Kuala Lumpur; a city which he now calls home. Obadius has performed at venues such as Zouk, Calavera, Le Noir, Elysium, COMO, Pisco, delivering his deep, hypnotic groove and taking a path of versatility and consistency in his style.
As his popularity undeniably increased, Obadius has become one of the most in demand DJs in Malaysia, sharing the decks with artists such as Alle Farben, James Trystan, AudioHell, James What, Sean Doyle, Hayze, Kaiser Souzai, Sonny Wharton, ME & her, AmineK, youANDme, Third Son, SevenDoors, Kate Simko, Chus & Ceballos, Miguel Bastida, Dennis Cruz and Sebastien Leger just to name a few.
The influences in his music are from artists who are remarkable through the complexity and depth of their sound, crafty producers of progressive and melodic pieces, not necessarily known for their name but for the incredible skills they have behind the decks or in the studio.
With progressive deep and melodic techno close to his heart, the young DJ has a promising allure to his music. Whether it's a short set or a few hours of fun behind the decks, his 8 years and counting since he started his DJ career has carved a path exciting to follow. His tunes picks are alluring, sensible, gracefully delivered and we can almost never recognise them. There is an air of unique flavour to his sets and very rarely do you hear the same record in another DJ's bag.
