Babak Shayan - Snake In The Grass (Plastic City. Play)
Born in Teheran (Iran) in 1973, Babak came to Germany due to the effects of the Iran-Iraq war in 1985. His love to music started in the early days of his childhood with artists such as Depeche Mode, Yello, New Order. But thanks to his new residence, the music that was avantgarde then became accessible for him. He went into heavy music collecting, making it possible to experience the concept of DJing just one year later: beginning in 1986, he spread mixtapes among his schoolmates and was soon a requested DJ for an audience that was much more older than he himself. He played in clubs where he would not have been allowed to enter because of his age. Consequently, his love for music lead him on the way to creating music. In 1998, he got the gear to get some tracks done and after gaining some experience in that field, Babak had his first release on the Plastic City. His first “Dualists” productions found their way into the cases of many DJs and many compilations and propelled him to the top of Germany’s Tech-House scene. In 2003 Babak moved to Cologne and founded his own label Shayan Music which has established itself as a modern music company that offers a broad spectrum of services. Besides all of his projects and music-making Babak plays as DJ at international festivals and clubs regularly. Finally in 2009, he released his first own artist album which he called “My Life”. The single “Snake in The Grass” is taken from this brilliant album.
