Konstruct with Deepak Sharma, Vaughan, & JX-216
Join us for our September edition of Konstruct
Deepak Sharma (Hidden Recordings/ NYC)
DJ, Producer and Curator of Hidden Recordings, Deepak Sharma has been entrenched in techno for over a decade. Tough, raw and gritty describe the man, his music and label.
Perseverance is another word synonymous with Deepak Sharma; an unrelenting passion for music and sharing his sound through a belief so intense, his soul pours out and bears itself within each release and DJ set.
Known for a cerebral approach to music, he demonstrates his ethos that DJing is about creating a moment, often through taking crowds on a hypnotic journey and building energy, with a room as one towards a higher peak.
While DJing is his calling, his label can also be described as going strong with demand growing through each carefully curated offering, slowly and steadily building a catalog greater than most: the rare feat of longevity, forty-one releases and counting.
Now, Deepak Sharma is fully engaged as a soloist, bursting at the seams with an active imagination, over-flowing with ideas and constantly learning, leading to an ambitious release schedule in the future.
Appearances with Ben Klock, Len Faki, Ben Sims, DVS1, Steffi, Bas Mooy, Steve Bicknell, Anthony Parasole, Claro Intelecto, The Advent, Developer, Audio Injection, Drumcell, Psyk, Xhin, Abdulla Rashim, Black Asteroid, Phil Moffa, I/Y, Delta Funktionen, Paul Birken, Savas Pascalides, Dustin Zahn, A Mochi, JC Laurent, Yuuki Sakai
