Shahrokh Dini dropped the highly acclaimed „Shayan“ – 12“ last year, here comes his next sure shot! After a long break of studio work Michael Reinboth is back on the production side and remixes. Seems in top form, as well as Liquid Phonk, who have had a Compost Black Label 12“ release (#98) in 2013, and great EPs on Farside and Lost My Dog Rec. in 2014.
After his highly acclaimed album Dripping Point in 2009, his first very own Tacky Dream EP and a nice remix for Marbert Rocel on Compost Black Label, Teheran (Iran) born DJ & producer Shahrokh Dini finally is back with a new 12“. For this EP, he teamed up with production mastermind Jan Krause from Beanfield.
Besides the album and some 12”s on Compost, Shahrokh’s release history is spiced and bottled with lots of good house music on labels like MoodMusic, KID Recordings, BBE, People That Make The Music, Strictly Rhythm, Ministry Of Sound and others. He’s also working on remixes for Yoruba’s Gabriele Poso and for BAR’s “White Noise” on Italic Rec.
As DJ, Shahrokh is resident in Karlsruhe’s Mood since more then a decade and recently got a new residency at “Trust” in Berlin. He usually spends the summer time in the southern territories of Europe, thus he usually takes part in the (Off-) Sonar Festival in Barcelona, ADE in Amsterdam and the party circus of Ibiza every year, also Dubai & Miami. Further he’ll be hosting parties in his home town Karlsruhe, such as After Art or events for ZKM.
Liquid Phonk was established in 1999 by Patrick Lesser and Mirko Koenig. When Patrick performed his first live act at a large private party, Mirko (who played a DJ set at same party) noticed him and the two decided to try working together in the studio.
In fact, the co-operation between the two worked very well on the first attempt, although they both preferred different kinds of electronic music. Little by little they formed a common style and soon the first demo CD was finished, which they handed over to Patrick Lindsey after a party night. A few months later, Patrick and Mirko had a record deal in the bag, which they owed to the title "Daydreamer". In Summer 2001, only two years after Mirko and Patrick met, they finally released the very first Liquid Phonk vinyl on Patrick Lindsey's SCHOOL Records label, followed by the second release one year later. The last release was on Lindsey's new label, IDPL.
After putting the project on hold for a few years, both Mirko and Patrick, went their own musical way (Mirko founded the DJ team 'Deepkins' with his old friend Christoph Shane and Patrick had a few techno releases on Bangbam, Labil and May Recordings). The two have now renewed their musical bond, and jointly, with renewed vigor and sound, there are various planned releases on Lifted Digital, Foul & Sunk and Compost Black Label.
