Sharam Tayebi – known to the dance community as just Sharam – first made a name as half of progressive house duo Deep Dish. As an individual producer, though, Sharam's style has sort of been the yang to partner Ali "Dubfire" Shirazinia's yin. Although the Dubfire excursions have been darker and more minimal than the usual Deep Dish oeuvre, Sharam has kept it big-room-friendly. To get an idea, he was responsible for that remix of Eddie Murphy's "Party All the Time" that was, for better or worse, inescapable a couple of years back. That's not to say that Sharam is into novelty or cheese, though. His compositions are expansive and nuanced but forever thumping, building, and intent on keeping the party going. His sets at the Winter Music Conference have become much-heralded and legendary, and his parties at the conference this past March were meant to promote his first album of originals, Get Wild, released late that month. The lead title single featured singer Daniel Bedingfield and was an instant, massive dance-floor smash. The rest of the disc, meanwhile, features similarly pop-friendly collaborations with the likes of Tommy Lee, Kid Cudi, Diddy, and even Chuck D and Patsy Cline. Expect most of these tracks, and plenty of other good-time sounds, at Gryphon this Saturday.
