Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Soha Radjpoust is an accomplished artist with almost 20 years of experience. His musical quest began at the age of 9 and blossomed at the age of 15, when he began working as a professional musician.
In 2003, Soha earned a diploma from the Jazz Music program at Humber College, with a specialization in piano. Along the way, he developed a passion for songwriting and production, which he polished using a variety of instruments including keyboards (Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes,Wurlitzer, Clavinet, Moog and other synthersizers), guitar, bass, and drums.
Over the years, Soha has made a name for himself both on stage and in the studio. Toronto’s local musicians often call on him to lend his talent, and popular bands such as The James Brown Band and Canada’s own Ashley MacIssac have asked Soha to share the stage.
Currently, Soha finds himself at home in the progressive house genre, and enjoys a strong following of fans who are dedicated to his unique sound. His signature melodies and distinctive beats have caught the attention and support of established artists around the world, including Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Armin van Buuren, and Natasha Bedingfield. Teaming up with Adam K, the duo celebrated immense acclaim and international support for their original work. Most notably, their breakthrough track “Twilight” maxed out at 2 on Beatport.com, and remained on Beatport’s Top 10 for more then 2 months. It was endorsed by BBC Radio 1 when it was dubbed “Essential Tune of the Week” by famed British DJ Pete Tong. The team also achieved worldwide recognition for their remix of Sylvia Tosun’s “Underlying Feeling” which landed a spot on Billboard’s Dance music charts. Other hits in the duo’s remix repertoire include Reflekt’s “Need to Feel Loved”, Kaskade’s “4 AM”, and “We Hold On” originally produced by Kaz James of the BodyRockers. Other noteworthy endorsements have come from across the globe, and include Grammy winner Roger Sanchez, famed trance artist BT, and British DJ and radio host Judge Jules.
After relatively short exposure to the world of house music, the industry has recognized Soha, not once, but twice in the category of Best Progressive House Artist on Beatport.com.
Soha finds inspiration around every corner, and draws on influences of traditional Persian music to create his distinctive music. His driving passion to create original and highly innovative productions, is a source of inspiration for others, and results in his pioneer-like status. A true master of his art and musical wizard, Soha strives to fuse different musical styles to create a sound that is truly his own.
