DT644 – Sharam Jey
International DJ, producer, remixer and label owner Sharam Jey has been shaking up the world of dance music since the early 90s with his infectious and accessible dance-floor ready grooves.
Over the years, the Cologne-based Iran-born artist has racked up numerous accolades and achievements including releasing 3 acclaimed albums (4 Da Loverz in 2005 & In My Blood in 2009, Invisible in 2018), having over 100 releases on some of dance music’s most established labels.
Jey’s success and longevity in the often fickle and fast-paced business of the music industry is a credit to his undeniable talent of being able to push things forward, relate to the masses and standout from the crowd with his own unique brand of house music.
But that’s not all, another huge passion of Jey’s is owning and running the successful record label, Bunny Tiger. His philosophy for the imprint has always been to supply 100% DJ tools from DJs to DJs and since its 2012 conception it’s, come a long way and, become one of Beatport’s top performing labels (Label of the Year Top 10 (2013), 5 overall No1s, 20+ top 10 tracks NuDisco chart). Bunny Tiger is currently celebrating its 5th anniversary with an expanded ‘Best of’ compilation album.
With continued support from key industry players including his latest release on Get Twisted, a busy tour diary and release schedule, Sharam Jey is on a roll and there’s no sign of one of the industry’s hardest workers stopping anytime soon.
