Strict Border

Strict Border I Plastic City
Canadian-based Strict Border (Amirali Shahrestani and Iman Habibi) were drawn together by their shared passion and love for electronic music. Music and nightlife inspired both of them from early on. They have built a reputation as hottest upcoming techno and house artists. The pair dived to the forefront of dance music in February 2009 and has achieved extensive recognition in fewer than three months since they joined forces in Tehran. Sadly the guys had to part ways shortly after meeting in Tehran as Iman currently lives in Tehran and Amirali had to go back to Toronto.

Although working from different continents with a time difference of eight hours and a half was hard at times, the duo saw it as a worthy challenge. Rather than back down at times when WAV files took up to an hour to upload with slow internet connections in Iran, the guys approached the challenge with tremendous interest and felt more and more confident with each step they took. Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and many other web sites are filtered by the government of Iran, making it hard for someone in the music industry and in constant need of the internet to keep up and move on. Despite strict laws and the threat of government censorship, Strict Border with the help of anti-filters and proxies to access the web world were able to work together and produce music.

Since they formed in February 2009, the duo believed that there is something special about them. Their first release got quite recognition and was played by Steve Lawler on BBC Radio 1 and signed to his label Viva Music in the Summer of 2009. Other supports in the business include artists such as Marco Carola, Christian Smith, Luciano, Nic Fanciulli, Gorge, Okain, Carl Cox, Nima Gorji, Carlo Lio, Wally Lopez, Mike Monday and many more. The guys are working with top rank artists in the industry, doing productions and remixes on some of the most influential and respected record labels around the globe such as Viva Music, Monique Musique, Rawthentic, Kling Klong, Noir Music to name a few.
