Artist: Shahrokh Dini
Title: Compost Black Label # 116
Cat No: CPT 449-1
Format: 12” / Download
Shayan is a strong, darkly swinging groover, convincing with a laconic cello theme. The B-side contains two huge deep house monsters! You’ll get lost in hypnotic synth pads and organ funkiness!
After his highly acclaimed album Dripping Point in 2009, his first very own Tacky Dream EP and a nice remix for Marbert Rocel on Compost Black Label, Teheran (Iran) born DJ & producer Shahrokh Dini finally is back with a new 12“. For this EP, he teamed up with production mastermind Jan Krause from Beanfield.
Besides the album and some 12”s on Compost, Shahrokh’s release history is spiced and bottled with lots of good house music on labels like MoodMusic, KID Recordings, BBE, People That Make The Music, Strictly Rhythm, Ministry Of Sound and others.
As DJ, Shahrokh is resident in Karlsruhe’s Mood since more then a decade and recently got a new residency at “Trust” in Berlin. He usually spends the summer time in the southern territories of Europe, thus he will be part of the (Off-) Sonar Festival in Barcelona, ADE in Amsterdam and the party circus of Ibiza this year.
Shayan is dedicated to his brother, who sadly passed away way to young…
The artwork cover is designed by the german artist collective Heine/Lenz/Zizka.
“HLZ are communication-animateurs who gathered to an osmotic design polonaise. The design juggling reaches from installations made of demilitarised civil war weapons to coporate design for museums and NGOs. Sleek humanoid success models on the fast track of life with rear mirrors and shiny hair helmets bore HLZ. Shahrokh Dini´s cover were compressed by Massu to a rhythmic camouflage made of Cassiterite.”
