Sharam delivers new album ‘Retroactive’ and this is a sublime piece of work from the legend.
Sharam really shot to fame alongside Dubfire, when the two of them launched the collaborative project Deep Dish which allowed them to capitalise on the electronic music scene and really make a name for themselves, however not taking away from the quality of each of their solo projects.
Launching Yoshitoshi Recordings in the process, Sharam has arrived on the label with his brand new album, coming under the name ‘Retroactive’ and this is a thirteen track electronic masterpiece, as the artist and renowned producer takes you through a number of different genres and styles, throwing in a few chilled anthems, a few tracks which will dominate the clubs, a few which will round off the festival and those that are geared towards the intimate scene.
The first single to come from ‘Retroactive’ was ‘Same’, a collaboration with Anousheh and this isn’t the only track to feature the artist. However it is ‘Arpi’ which gets the album well and truly kicked off, and what an anthem this is at six minutes long, providing a growling electronic bass line with big drum kicks and snares included to provide that solid built up, gearing the listener towards something big, allowing them to prepare for the journey ahead.
Key tracks on ‘Retroactive’ include the Disco like track ‘Over You’ which goes for the vocoded vocals with some major builds and a groovy bass line to kick with it, that stand out single ‘Same’ which set the tone for the album, and also the following single ‘A Warehouse’ which has you driving for that intensity, that Techno like vibe. That is to name but a few of the singles as ‘Crazi Flute’ is another featuring the legendary Giogio Moroder and this is a track which is really different and really out there.
Other must listen-to’s include the collaboration with Daniel Bedingfield ‘Call To Me’, the awesome, intimate and rather intense ‘Morning Glory’ which has those warehouse deep Techno vibes surrounding it, and finally the ‘The Photograph’, which ultimately is just an absolute banger.
Sharam has showcased his quality once more as a producer, showing that he can dabble in various genres and produce the goods, and that his is simply not going away anytime soon. Make sure you check out ‘Retroactive’. You can download your copy of the album here.
