Info: Besides his passion for classical music he has always been into electronic music as well Does any Iranian participate in the global dance circus. Yep, they do: Deep Dish, Ali Dubfire and Shahrokh. Born into the highly westworld influenced Shah-era, he passed his high school diploma in Teheran and moved to Germany after the regime fall. „Persians are melancholic people“, says Shahrokh, „with a huge appreciation for poetic.“ „His congenius partner Andreas Köhler looks back on long lasting stays as well. But what does it have in common with House music. The persian folk music, is based on house tempo from 120 to 126 bpm, even though persian folk music is more polyrhythmical, the melancholic melodies lord over these tempi. The ethnic dances are very similar to Jackin – hydraulic down to top dancing – quite different to the prevalent Rockin´ or Headnodding in the west. In the music of Shahrokh the Cello or pads replace the melancholic component. And when you remember early house of the late 80s/ early 90s you´ll find definitely plenty of these kind of moods as well. Just ask Robert Owens.
With the first collective release on Compost Records, Shahrokh and Sound Of K melt into the project Shahrokh Sound Of K. Their track „Owlflight“ got massive support from keyplayers like Rainer Trüby, Peter Kruder, Atjazz, Sasse and Àme. Their biggest aim is giving Housemusic back musical basic structures, arrangements, live elements and a little bit of poetry. Different to this whole bunch of pre-programmed electronic music tracks currently out there, a lot of Shahrokh Sound Of K tunes resulting out of a jam situation where both of the guys playing with the musical elements. Shahrokh Sound Of K. understand their album as a musical Dripping Point – the distillate of their many influences like Garage, Afro, House, Jazz and Discofunk. Dripping Point includes vocal features by „the voice of house“ Robert Owens, Jamie Lloyd (known from his solo projects on Future Classic), the swedish songstress Siri Svegler and Toyin Taylor.
