Babak Shayan

Babak Shayan I Plastic City
Babak Shayan was born in Teheran, Iran in 1973. Due to the effects of the Iran-Iraq war, Babak came to Germany in 1985. His love to music started in the early days of his childhood with artists such as Depeche Mode, Yello, New Order. But thanks to his new residence, the music that was avantgarde then became accessible for him. He went into heavy music collecting, making it possible to experience the concept of DJing just one year later: beginning in 1986, he spread mixtapes among his schoolmates and was soon a requested DJ for an audience that was much more older than he himself. He played in clubs where he would not have been allowed to enter because of his age.

Consequently, his love for music lead him on the way to creating music. In 1998, he got the gear to get some tracks done and after gaining some experience in that field, Babak had his first release on the renowned TechHouse imprint Plastic City. His first Dualists productions found their way into the cases of many DJs and many compilations and propelled him to the top of Germany's techhouse scene. While being on the producer's side, he did not forget about DJing and while he developed the musical concept for Heidelberg's Bar1, it was plain to see that a conserved form of his DJ sets there would find a broad audience. The Bar1 compilation series was born and Babak's reputation as dj, producer and skilled arranger sky rocketed after the appearance of his reknowned Bar1-Mix-CD. The success story continues as the mix CD heads into volume 7 while having a strong impact on the deep Techhouse sound over the years.

In 2001 and 2002, when Babak was working as A&R for Plastic City (with his class signings like Cevin Fisher, The Kelly Project and others), he got in touch with Jost Gerischer (aka Jon Silva) and immediately hit it off and began working together. The Basil project was born as well as Soda Inc. (of which the second should find its way back to Plastic City in 2004). In 2003 Babak moved to Cologne and founded his own label Shayan Music which has established itself as a modern music company that offers a broad spectrum of services. While bringing out records and CDs in regularity, Shayan-Music offers a wide range of services musical concepts, consultation of clients within the gastronomy branch as well as film and fashion sector. Besides all of his projects and music-making Babak plays as DJ at international festivals and clubs regularly. Finally in 2009, he also released his first artist album which he called "My Life" - of course on Plastic City.
