Percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi’s first ever album on vinyl. Mortazavi is known for playing traditional Persian instruments – the tombak and the daf. After developing more than thirty new striking techniques and progressing to be one of the most prominent players in Iran. He eventually settled in Berlin. Mortazavi’s virtuosic playing rivals the intensely programmed dynamics of electronica. His rapid, needlepoint drum hits bend their tonality in incredibly musical ways, but there is still an underlying focus on cyclical repetition that encourages the same ancient transcendental quality that so many contemporary artists strive for.
