Monosurround Monosurround Maximalist Berlin Born out of a flash inspiration and musical necessity, the concept of Monosurround was first formed in 1999 in Berlin’s notorious Kreuzberg district from the restless minds of Ramtin Asadolahzadeh and Erik Schaeffer. Monosurround wasted no time, immediately jumping into the fray with production on a pair of film soundtracks as well as a daring multi-piece live performance. They were driven by a desire to constantly re-define an ever-evolving and vibrant sound of modern electronic music. The following years saw Ramtin and Erik refine their sound and live performance, becoming a dynamic duo on stage, regularly providing the spark for dancefloors across the world with both their live sets and burgeoning DJ team. Unprecedented studio success paralleled their jet setting lifestyles, with the anthemic “I Warned You Baby” becoming a favorite of the summer of 2002, finding a home in both festivals and charts. Further hits only reinforced Monosurround as being one of the up-and-coming providers of storming electronic club music and naughty electro-pop, with a flurry of releases on a remarkable list of labels such as Superstar Recordings, Moonbootique Records, Dream Beat, 1st Decade Records and most recently France’s leading Citizen Records (label of Vitalic). It is on this latest platform that the culmination of nearly 10 years of relentless and fanatical musical devotion gives birth to the long-awaited debut album from Monosurround, “Hello World”.
