Biography

Sharif’s (born 02.06.1982) love for music spread’s back to his early childhood, growing up in the early 80’s he was exposed to the likes of the Cure, New Order and Bob Marley (thanks to his older siblings).
A confessed childhood band geek, Sharif’s introduction to playing music amongst other musicians was brought about with playing in the school band as a lead clarinetist. As his overall appreciation of music grew so did his knowledge and passion for classical music only to later move on to the saxophone where by he was exposed to a lot more jazz and funk. By having the exposure to jazz his whole musical outlook changed thanks to probably one of the most important trait’s that jazz has to offer, which is the freedom through improvisation.

After high school Sharif tried out for the Conservatorium of music on the saxophone after (only playing for a year) but alas he failed to be excepted. Taking the year off and being slightly disheartened he still decided to pursue a career in music yet not knowing exactly where. After a year of clubbing and hanging around music stores he grew a new passion for electronic and dance music. Yet it was the fusion of organic instrumentation and electronic music that really brought about a new excitement and passion for Sharif, which changed his whole outlook on music once again.
