Currently Listening To….Persian Empire

Although it might first come across as overtly commercial, the music by Persian Empire aka Sam Khatam (Germany) is in fact clever, subtle electronica. Elements of jazz, trip-hop even swing appear in the vocals and the tight programming. Most tracks invite more investigation, who is this young producer? Khatam’s varied repertoire skirts around palpable influences of house, soundscape and ambient. Our favourite though is verging on Trollstep, see the bottom of this post to hear it.
