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 renowned TechHouse imprint 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 techhouse scene. While being on the producer’s side, he did not forget about DJing and while he developed the musical concept for Heidelberg’s Bar1, it was plain to see that a conserved form of his DJ sets there would find a broad audience. The Bar1 compilation series was born and Babak’s reputation as dj,producer and skilled arranger sky rocketed after the appearance of his reknowned Bar1-Mix-CD.
The success story continues as the mix CD heads into volume 7 while having a strong impact on the deep Techhouse sound over the years. In 2001, when Babak was working as A&R for Plastic City (with hi class signings like Cevin Fisher, The Kelly Project and others), he got in touch with Jost Gerischer and immediate sympathy made the two guys do a lot of stuff together.The Basil project was born as well as Soda Inc. (of which the second should find its way back to Plastic City in 2004). It revealed to be a good preparation when UCMG (the company that held labels like Plastic City among many others) went broke in 2002 .Babak moved to Cologne and founded his own label Shayan Music in 2003 which has established itself as a modern music company that offers a broad spectrum of services.While bringing out records and CDs in regularity,Shayan-Music offers a wide range of services musical concepts, consultation of clients within the gastronomy branch as well as film- and fashion sector.Besides all of his projects and music-making Babak plays as DJ at international festivals and clubs regularly.
