APA has signed electronic producer SHARAM, one half of the GRAMMY-winning, chart-topping dance duo DEEP DISH, it was announced by VP and head of the electronic music department ALEX CHAYKIN, who will handle all bookings. SHARAM has just finalized a 20+ date NORTH AMERICAN album tour.
Commented CHAYKIN: “SHARAM has always been a driving force in the dance music scene, staying true to himself as the genre has evolved over the years. I was excited to work with him right around the release of a second LP, with a lot more on the way. We hit the ground running right off the bat and were able to get something really solid in place that we can build upon into the backend of 2016 and throughout next year.”
SHARAM will release his first new solo album in seven years, "A Warehouse," on JUNE 10th via his YOSHITIOSHI RECORDINGS label. The follow up to his 2009 debut continues to tell his story through the prism of a warehouse where he first discovered his love for dance music in WASHINGTON, DC’s underground club scene. "A Warehouse" revisits his roots across 13 tracks that traverse from early '80s GIORGIO MORODER-inspired disco to futuristic, dark and hypnotic club cuts with menacing drum-and-bass-inspired sounds, illustrating house music’s metamorphosis into different sub-genres and the house offshoots he indelibly shaped.
DEEP DISH developed a reputation in the early '90s by performing at venues across the U.S. where they developed a fervent following. Over the years, the duo has been nominated for four GRAMMYS, winning in 2002 for Best Remixed Recording for DIDO's “Thank You.”
