Exclusive: Sharam puts dark spin on Crooked Colours’ ‘I’ll Be There’
Sharam just put his own spin on Crooked Colours’ newest single “I’ll Be There” – the debut single off their upcoming album in 2019. The former Deep Dish member took what was once an uplifting and emotive synth ballad, and chopped and screwed it into a housey dancefloor machine. It kicks the mind awake by way of reverbrating percussion, a buzzy bassline, and the original’s stirring vocals, making for an edit that feels suited for both a sunset dance party or the afterhours’ dancefloor.
The Iranian/American record producer, and Yoshitoshi label head Sharam has proven himself as one of house’s flagship acts. Known for cultivating some of the most inventive soundscapes and innovative live sets at every stage he graces, it’s made achieving feats like winning a Grammy seem effortless. It is this masterful familiarity with the community and ability to read crowds that have given the artist the platform to shine through as one of the greats, while also leaving room for continual growth.
Crooked Colours will be heading out on a US headline tour in the coming weeks starting in Toronto on October 24 and ending in Chicago on November 15. Head here for more tickets and information, and follow the band here.
