Sharam's RETROACTIVE is out now
Seven years after his debut album Get Wild, Sharam has unveiled his sophomore LP, Retroactive.
One half of the legendary dance duo Deep Dish, Sharam's new solo album continues to tell his story through a retrospective of influences going back to the days when he first discovered his love for dance music in the underground club scene of Washington, DC.
Comprised of a collection of tracks he’s held in the vaults waiting to release as a cohesive concept, Retroactive revisits his roots across thirteen tracks that traverse from early 80’s Giorgio Moroder inspired disco to futuristic, dark and hypnotic clubby affairs with menacing drum and bass inspired sounds - illustrating house music’s metamorphosis into different sub-genres and the house offshoots Sharam indelibly shaped.
“I never want my records to sound like anyone else’s, and at the same time I never want two of my own tracks to sound the same,” Sharam explains. “Every track is its own adventure, like an individual ride in a theme park. Each ride has to stand on its own, but come together as one cohesive unit in the context of the theme park. In this case the theme park is A Warehouse, filled with hypnotic rides and emotional rollercoasters, and I've retroactively gone back to all those rides and influences” Sharam says.
