San Francisco-based producer and long time dance music veteran, Behrouz Nazari, is difficult to label as he is like the music he creates and spins. My sound is impossible to categorize but if I were to give it my best shot, I would describe it as a myriad of different subgenres of music I have experimented with during my past 20 years of DJ’ing. It’s composed of sexy and hypnotizing music from the past, present and future, incorporating the finer elements of deep house and techno, Behrouz confesses. This being said, Behrouz has quickly become a highly respected DJ recognized worldwide for his groundbreaking headlining sets at such venues as Pacha, Space and DC-10 in Ibiza, Crobar in Miami, New York and Chicago, Ruby Skye in San Francisco and Redlight in Paris. Add to this his highly acclaimed productions, CD compilations and award nominations and you have found the recipe to success which has lead Behrouz to become a key player in the realm of the superstar DJ.
Over the course of his exciting career, Behrouz has traveled the world over playing alongside the industry..s top DJs who have recognized his talent and ambition: DJ’s such as Danny Tenaglia, Deep Dish, Sasha, John Digweed, Carl Cox and Pete Tong just to name a few. In 2003, Tenaglia and Deep Dish named Behrouz the DJ to watch in DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 DJ issue. That same year, playing alongside Deep Dish and Danny Tenaglia, Behrouz was much admired for his memorable set at Pacha Ibiza’s closing party. Gaining notoriety throughout the industry quickly led to Behrouz being nominated for Best Breakthrough DJ at the 2004 Dancestar Awards held yearly in Miami during the Winter Music Conference, nominated for Best Breakthrough DJ at the 2004 DJ Awards in Ibiza and nominated for Best Resident DJ at the 2005 Club World Awards for his famous Pure Behrouz residency at Ruby Skye in San Francisco.
In the studio, Behrouz has been equally passionate. In 2003 he completed touring for the highly successful Yoshitoshi 2 In House We Trust CD series (receiving praise from both his peers and dance music publications) and performed at over 50 venues in a span of four months. A prolific producer, Behrouz’s Safe From Harm remix was among 2002’s most popular tracks (Safe From Harm reached number one on the Billboard Dance Chart that same year) and his original production Azab is featured on Carl Cox’s compilation CD Fact-Australia. Moreover, his Yoshitoshi remix of Never Felt So Good was featured on Deep Dish’s Global Underground 025 Toronto CD. Recently he just completed a CD with Yousef on the UK label Renaissance called Frontiers, a 2 CD compilation that pits two DJs head to head with a unique, geographical twist with both heralding from different countries. The concept breathes a welcome air of originality into the compilation market, the perfect platform to showcase DJs, artists, countries and the ever-expanding global world of dance. Renaissance MD Geoff Oakes says, ..We have worked with a number of very established DJs over the years. Frontiers will be our platform for artistes who, although a little too experienced to be classed as nu-skool, are still fresh and exciting; driving their respected genre in their own domestic scene forward and knocking down the door of the A-list… Be also on the lookout out for several other distinguished projects Behrouz worked on such as his highly praised Essential Mix for Pete Tong’s Radio One Show and his widely praised CD, Yoshitoshi Ibiza.
With DJ events from New York to Costa Rica to Dubai and Singapore, the future looks to be an even more exciting global adventure for Behrouz. In addition to his residency with Ruby Skye in San Francisco and Mokai in Miami, Behrouz has a bi-monthly residency at Redlight in Paris.
