P.R - Thank You
Diversity is a template for success for any artist, Sydney based music producer Pedram Rouzbehani known to his fans as “P.R” crafted his art around diversity drawn from life experiences & cultural upbringing.
Dubbed as a 4D producer, he exhibits the importance of not being 1 dimensional when it comes to creating his art. Despite becoming increasingly popular within the Hip Hop and R&B scene, P.R has expanded his horizons by creating Nu-Jazz, Soul, Chill-Out, Lounge and House music.
His inspiration is drawn from his life and observing the world around him, which has created his passion to create positive music with good vibes or what he refers to it as “feel good music”. He loves to experiment with different moods of music by fusing multiple genres of current and past music.
He is influenced by Life, Sound, Film and Music. The main influences in his production style have been the great works of DJ Premier, Nujabes, 9th Wonder, Kanye West, J Dilla & Alchemist, just to name a few,
In 2006 he committed himself to focusing on producing music seriously, whilst studying at university to complete his bachelor of Electronic Arts. His rentless drive started paying off as he was starting to get more attention and started to establish himself as a serious music producer.
In January 2010, he released his debut mixtape “Pre-Heated” which was hosted by world famous DJ/Producer “Statik Selektah”. The mixtape featured artists from around the world such as Naledge (from Kidz in the Hall), Chaundon, Mystro, Carla Waye, 13th Son & many others. The mixtape achieved great accomplishment clocking over 10,000 downloads, as well as being featured on over 100 websites, magazine articles and landing some radio air time.
In April 2010, he received a bachelor degree after completing his 4 year course in Electronic Arts, which he had studied Digital Music as one of his main subjects.
In May 2011, he produced and released a successful digital e.p titled “Bridging The Gap” for New York veteran “Ali Vegas”, with fellow Sydney music prodocuer “The Iron Ghost”, under their duo music group called “Sound Kamp”.
On June 03, 2012, he released his debut solo e.p titled “Introspection”, through U.K based label “Cult Classic Records”. So far, the new e.p brought in over 15000 downloads, earning them a big bunch of new fans, constant twitter, facebook and blog posts, radio play, and a buzz that is still going strong.
To date, P.R has worked with people from all around the globe. In Australia, Asia, Europe and America. He plans to travel around Asia in 2012/2013 to expand his music into the Asian market by working with Asian artists and labels and spreading his Jazz fused Hip-Hop sound which is inspired by Nujabes. He is currently working on his second EP which he plans to release sometime in 2013.
His love for music & the cultures, as well as the joy and thrill of making music and experiencing other artists embrace and use it, are what drives him to continuously create and produce.
