Tales of the Terrace this Friday 22 February welcomes Alam and OtherKind on the roof (House Music)
Having always been obsessed with music, Alam decided to push himself by testing the waters of his musical inspiration. Today, this DJ/Producer has made a name for himself, not only is he one of the backbones behind some of Kuala Lumpur's leading music establishments, but he has definitely proven himself to be considered as one of the prominent generation of DJs firing up the local and international clubbing scene.
Since beginning his career 16 years ago, Alam has held up residencies at most of the major venues around town, including Kuala Lumpur’s premier underground club; The Backroom*KL, while making guest appearances at the legendary Zouk Club, Ministry of Sound KL and Elysium, to name a few. Over the years, Alam has established himself as a reputable individual driven to expand his creative potential with international tours around the region, having received the utmost respect from iconic landmarks such as Eden & Es Paradis (Ibiza), Kyo & Kilo (Singapore), Oma (Hong Kong), Mustache (Bangkok), Full Moon Party (Koh Phangan), Cha Cha Moon & Nikki Beach (Koh Samui), as well as Indonesia’s infamous Stadium & Embassy / Co2 (Jakarta).
After seven years based in Australia, Alam returned home to KL and joined Ohrwurm as a third partner. Ohrwurm is recognized as one of the few well-respected institutions that continue to push quality shows in its homeland.
On a production note, his ‘Kaleidosimple EP’ is released on Redflux Cinnabar through Beatport and Juno Download, with remixes from Nick Robson, Rodrigo Soria, and Yuuki Hori. The release has been charted numerous times and received widespread praise with support from DJs on shows like Frisky Radio and Proton Music.
Hailing from Tehran, Otherkind is an exciting DJ with a decade and a half of underground experience under his belt. Having mastered the art of playing the Tumbak and ZARB, a percussion instrument specific to Iran, allows him to incorporate a specific style to his DJ sets, playful and solid and at the same time smooth and melodic. Breezing through music genres Otherkind's focus is on deep house and techno and his journey is uplifting, sensible and epic. 2017 and 2018 has seen Otherkind in the studio, honing his production skills and bringing up releases on Kommunication Records and Sweatbox Records, with many more to come.
