A talented DJ/Producer, with releases on Kommunication Records and Sweatbox Records, Otherkind is a force in our music world. Intelligent selector, master of live interpretations.
Hailing from Tehran, Otherkind is an exciting DJ with almost a decade and a half of
underground experience under his belt. Having mastered the art of playing the Tumbak & 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.
Tehran of 2003 , where Otherkind started his DJ career, was an eclectic city allowing experimentation and expansion. His style has been shaped throughout the years due to the very imprint of the crowds' music taste in Iran. Exquisite and diverse could describe Otherkind's style, and the classic hint added to his music is inspiring.
Having graced the decks in some of Turkey's and Dubai's underground clubs in 2008 marked another step in Otherkind’s evolution and a subtle shift in his take on music. Meanwhile in Europe and USA, artists such as Cirez D, Stephan Bodzin, Maceo Plex, Kolsch, Andromedha, Guy J were releasing some musical gems which further inspired OtherKind to fne tune, reshape and reinvent himself , adding style and grace to his sets.
2010 marked Otherkind's move to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). He has hosted residencies in Vertigo Club , iClub, played in Aristo by Zouk and was resident DJ at Casbah and Sultan Lounge at Mandarin Oriental. Marinis On 57, Nagaba and Elysium too have seen Otherkind
behind the decks on numerous occasions. His monthly residency atUBradio Bangkok (Thailand) is ongoing and it is granting the listeners a fabulous music journey through his exhilarating sets.
2017 and 2018 have caught Otherkind in the studio, honing his production skills and bringing up releases on Kommunication Records and Sweatbox Records, with many more to come in the next few months.
