Biography

Born into a Swiss-Iranian Family, Samim was exposed to a wide range of musical influences throughout his life. Soon after discovering his passion for electronic music through Hip hop and Industrial music, he started to develop and enhance his renowned Syncopated Patterns and Hypnotic Rhythms.

Early on Samim joined forces with Michal Ho, producing a wide range of music under the “Samim & Michal” brand. After their first EP “Dini Muater” appeared on the Zurich based label “Stattmusik” the duo were poised for success. They went on to release numerous EPs for labels like Tuningspork, Freizeitglauben and Kindisch, developing their trademark sound even further.

In 2004, due to a serious illness Samim was forced to take a break just to reappear shortly after, more determined then ever and ready to take the next step in his career. In late 2005 he relocated from Zurich to Berlin, opening up a whole new range of musical opportunities. Samim immediately tapped into the Berlin scene, initiating his most productive time so far.

He released a series of very successful 12″ on labels like Circus Company, Moonharbour and Tuningspork and due to popular demand got Remix assignments from labels like Get Physical, Highgrade, Crosstown Rebels, Dirtybird and Four:Twenty. At the same time he focused more on the album format, producing two full length releases under the brands Bearback and Fuckpony.

After intense touring madness, Samim returned to the studio to record his first solo album, “Flow”. The album’s lead single “Heater” rapidly went from underground hit to being the biggest international commercial success of 2007 after it’s re-release on Ministry of Sounds “Data” label. Among a wide range of break out achievements, it was on heavy rotation on BBC1 and received over 10 million video views online.

Since then Samim has taken some time out to work on some media arts projects in Berlin.
