Grammy award winning producer and DJ, Sharam, is gearing up to release his most exciting compilation to date...
The three hour mix, due for release on 11th October on Yoshitoshi Recordings, was recorded live at Warung Beach Club - Brazil’s most remarkable superclub – and stands as testament to Sharam’s genre bending sets and unique ability to rock the dancefloor.
When tropical clubbing paradise, Warung, on the south coast of Brazil, booked Sharam for a 10hr house music marathon set in April this year, he smashed all attendance records since the club opened with 4,500 clubbers turning up to hear his set.
Three of the most perfect hours of this night have been selected and lovingly presented in this must-have compilation, which contains a whopping 11 unreleased new and exclusive tracks. Sharam explains:
“Warung is the number one club in my book so it's a dream come true that I get to showcase to the world what went on musically last time I played there. Three hours of that magical 10 hour set is now engraved in eternity via this album.”
Part of this epic set was later featured as a prestigious Essential Mix on Radio 1, where Pete Tong described Sharam (also one part of Deep Dish) as: “on devastating form”. It was after the overwhelmingly positive reaction to this Essential Mix, that Sharam decided to turn his set into a proper mix compilation.
The album features tracks and remixes from Slam, Pirupa, Adam Beyer and Nic Fanciulli, plus Sharam’s anthemic track ‘Fun’, alongside Pig & Dan’s WMC Stormer ‘Detonate’. A further smattering of releases follow from Yoshitoshi including Tom Middleton and El Mundo & Satori, and Sharam’s own exclusive, unreleased track ‘Que Cubano’.
Warung state simply: “Sharam playing in Warung is legendary. He is part of our family”. They loved him so much that on 29th October Sharam will return to do it all over again.
Official press release:
Genre-defining, Yoshitoshi, is gearing up to release its most exciting compilation to date from label boss, Sharam. Recorded live at Warung Beach Club, Brazil's most remarkable super-club, this three-hour mix stands as a testament to Sharam's genre-bending sets and record-breaking appearance with a unique ability to rock the dancefloor…
Nicknamed as the electronic 'music temple' on the south coast of Brazil, the Warung Beach Club is a tropical paradise, set amidst a vast beachfront nature preserve where it showcases the greatest names in modern electronic music. When Warung booked Grammy award-winning producer and DJ, Sharam, for a 10hr house music marathon set in April this year, he smashed all attendance records since the club opened, with 4,500 clubbers turning up to hear his set!
Three of the most perfect hours of this night have been selected and lovingly presented in this must-have compilation, Sharam explains:
"Warung is the number one club in my book so it's a dream come true that I get to showcase to the world what went on musically last time I played there. Three hours of that magical 10 hour set is now engraved in eternity via this album. I could retire today and be a happy man, but nights like this make me want to go on forever doing what I love to do."
Not only was this floor filling set a hit at Warung, it also impressed Radio 1 and in May 2011, they aired two hours as a prestigious Essential Mix, where Pete Tong described Sharam as: "In devastating form". For Radio 1 to air a mix recorded elsewhere is practically unheard of, however rules were side-stepped to air Sharam's blinding Warung set, which is no surprise when you consider Sharam (also part of the legendary Deep Dish) won Essential Mix of the Year for his debut mix in 2009.
With popularity sky high, and with such a good reaction to the Essential Mix, Sharam decided to turn his set into a proper mix compilation. The album is packed with an array of white labels, unreleased tunes, dance floor head turners and a selection of hot Yoshitoshi releases. It journeys from the hypnotic sounds of Paul Ritch, Slam and Pirupa into Joe T. Vanelli's explosive 'It's Gotta Be Big' and remixes and tracks by Adam Beyer, and Nic Fanciulli. Sharam's anthemic track 'Fun' appears in the mix, alongside his remix of Pig & Dan's WMC Stormer 'Detonate', as well as a smattering of upcoming releases from Yoshitoshi including Tom Middleton & El Mundo & Satori and Sharam's own unreleased track 'Que Cubano', and so many more.
