When it comes to dance music most people tend to automatically switch off and think of repetitive, unenlightened, brain-poaching drivel. However there are still a few DJs/producers out there who continue to burn the light bright and keep striving to push sound forward, onward and upward and find a way to take it and relate it to the masses’ and taking it to the masses is one thing Cologne’s Sharam Jey does best.
Underwater Records wasted no time in inking Sharam’s first deal. In 2005 Sharam released his highly acclaimed first artist album called “4 Da Loverz” and a few mix compilations. As his star continued to rise as a DJ/producer, this wunderkind decided to take his opportunity while he could and started his own label, King Kong Records which recently celebrated it’s 10th birthday.
To his remixing credit over the years, his reworking of Café del Mar’s track ‘Energy 52’ was voted BEST DANCE TRACK OF ALL TIME and everyone from Moby to Mylo to Faithless and Faith No More have sought his unrivalled ear to take their tracks to the dancefloor, front and centre.
Sharam Jey has really taken things up to the next level with the release of his second artist album ‘In My Blood’. Not happy to settle on mediocre, he’s worked hard and pushed things to unexpected heights, working with a host of amazing collaborators that really vary the sounds of the record and take you by surprise including Princess Superstar, Tommie Sunshine, Andreas Hogby, Nik Valentino (of Lost Valentinos) and Cornelia
Next to come in 2011 is a remix album compiling all the huge mixes featured on the singles of the „In My Blood“ album.
Plus he is also always busy working on remixes for other great names, most recently he put his hands on tracks by Diplo & Don Diablo, Mason & Roisin Murphy, Alex Gopher, Funkerman to name just a few... which will conclude into a compilation featuring just the strongest of those mixes on one hot album.
