Growing up under restrictions in Tehran, Iran, Ashkan was surrounded by an electronic music scene that spanned from the Middle East to Europe. His background has always inspired him to keep pushing forward in the musical journey and to connect with people through music. He moved to Toronto and was inspired by Progressive House music and created a mystic vibe with his hypnotic transition, a fusion of exciting and energetic music which soon garnered the attention of several local promoters and he landed his first gig at Coda soon after. At shows, He's received great feedback from old and new fans who appreciate his passion for conveying a strong sense of cultural identity through his sound. His tracks were supported by many DJs such as Gabriel and Dresden, Jan Blomqvist, Øostil, Rauschhaus, Space Motion, etc., and they praised him as a creative and talented producer. Throughout his career as an artist, Ashkan is keen to continuously push the boundaries of the electronic genre and expand his mix of techno and house into a melodic vibe.
"My passion for electronic music began in my childhood and grew as I worked hard behind the scenes, producing music day and night, leading me to attend big shows on the international scene - a journey of breaking the taboo of restrictions in the country of birth, underground music and hard work that has been worth every minute, if you ask me what the key is, the key is music production and consistency"
