Sharaz has been nominated several times as "America's Favorite DJ" in the breakbeat category by BPM (magazine) An accomplished drummer and percussionist, Sharaz often posts videos of him playing solo and covering rock songs on the drums. On occasion Sharaz will also incorporate hand drumming into his live DJ sets. Remixes have been provided by Sharaz for Tommy Boy Records, POD Music, Kaleidoscope, DBI records, and StreetBeat Records. He has 35 records and five compact discs released under his own independent label. In August 2009, Sharaz began releasing a bi-weekly online mixcast in MP3 downloadable format entitled "Return to Planet Boom".[9] In early 2010, after a several year hiatus (from approx 2006 - 2010), Sharaz began producing and releasing new tracks again via Soundcloud, Beatport and iTunes. In 2011, Sharaz resumed regular touring, and currently uses Ableton Live and an Akai APC40 MIDI controller, rather than CD players or turntables, as a basis for his live DJ sets.
