    Last year Amirali burst onto the scene with the style defining debut album ‘In Time’, and several stand out singles for the label that discovered him, Crosstown Rebels. Fast-forward to 2013 and the producer/musician/singer is evolving his sound with killer craftsmanship. Next release ‘Melancholia’ aims straight for the heart of the dancefloor with a pair of moving remixes from club weapon veteran Deetron.

    The original mix of ‘Melancholia’ is pulsing with an epic, cosmic force, where an intoxicating combination of shuddering bass and moody, spooky disco grooves meets starry-eyed vocals and haunting minor keys. Providing further proof of Amirali’s on-point and immaculate production, ‘Melancholia’ is also full of soul, emotion and dark elegance.

    Deetron takes the reigns on the B-side, lending his distinctive warm and emotive style to his ‘Main Mix’. Propelled forward with rising synths and a mounting tension, the Swiss wizard allows Amirali’s refrain to take centre stage underpinning the melody with an intricate percussive groove that leads to a vocal breakdown and style-shifting bassline drop. Deetron also delivers a techno twist on the ‘Club Instrumental Mix’.

    Iranian born and Toronto raised, Amirali is now firmly based in London where his musical career was set in motion towards full on superstardom. Already winning over legions of fans with his blend of gothic vocals and moody emotive house, massive tracks from the album including ‘My Way’, ‘Beautiful World’ and ‘Just An Illusion’ were signs that a genuine, forward-thinking musical talent had arrived. Now incredibly in-demand as a DJ on the global circuit with a South American tour behind him this year already and a North American tour about to begin, somehow Amirali has found time to begin creating a second album and cultivate a bona-fide band featuring live drums, guitar, saxophone and the man himself on keys and vocals. An exciting 2013 lies ahead…
