Combining two of my favourite forms of art – Persian traditional music with bass music – I established a music imprint called MURDA|MUDRA, as an outlet for my explorations in sound design. Our first release, SAGE Vol. 1, was a 4-track EP which cast light on the spontaneous and turbulent confrontation between electronic bass music and Middle Eastern soundscape. Drawing on a wide array of influences, I curated a selection of ethnic bass music featuring offerings from risk-taking electronic musicians and digital artists. I also co-produced a track with Mark Nazemi under the moniker 'Mount Qaf'.
The compilation was well received and featured on several music blogs including Nada Brahma Music (UK), and Conscious Bass Music (USA).
