ERPHUN. In Farsi – It is the state and ability of being on a higher spiritual level.
It may have been fate that Erphun's very first gig was on Halloween, because his music is moody, pounding, and transformative, as if from another realm entirely. His ability to build a mood is mesmerizing and transports the listener to that alternate spiritual level that his moniker infers. Having spun around the US, Mexico, Canada, Europe and Australia at legendary clubs such as Exit (Lithuania), Chinese Laundry (Sydney), Brown Alley (Melbourne), 1015 (San Francisco), Circus (Montreal), Voodoo Lounge (Las Vegas), Erphun has begun to make his mark. Erphun's music has been spun in clubs all over the world and is succinctly summed up by John Digweed as a deep, dark, hypnotic and brooding sound, which trademarks his pieces.
With releases on Excentric Muzik, UMEK’s “1605”, Stephan Bodzin’s imprint, Herzblut, Alan Fitzpatrick’s label 8 Sided Dice , Sleaze UK, Audio Therapy and more recently John Digweed’s Bedrock Records, his name is now instantly recognizable among the tech-house, minimal, and techno world of spinning producers who globe trot his compositions to be dropped on every conceivable audience.
TECH-LA-DI is excited to have Erphun for his New York City debut!
