Biography

Babak Shayan was born in Teheran, Iran in 1973. Due to the effects of the Iran-Iraq war, Babak came to Germany in 1985.His love to music started in the early days of his childhood with artists such as Depeche Mode, Yello,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 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.
