Trainspotting With Naz  

Australian-Iranian producer/DJ/fantasy author Naz drops her third multimedia-linked release on her New Eden Records, ‘Night Rider’ feat. 88 Birds, out now. Her unique creative approach is fuelled by fantasy fiction and gaming; “Music has always created fantasy worlds in my head. So with every New Eden Records release, we [Naz & her co-author John Carnes] write a full chapter of the story it tells, a music video clip illustrates each chapter as the book grows… so the developing storyline is fully immersive.”

Naz’ swift success is real enough – in under a year, this still-emerging artist was playing Drumsheds, Brooklyn Mirage, The Gorge, Piknic Electronik, Creamfields… supporting Tale Of Us and playing her debut sell-out headliner in Sydney Australia, along with releasing on Anjunabeats, Enhanced, and starting her own label.  To celebrate her new release, DMCWorld goes Trainspotting with Naz.

Naz, 88Birds – ‘Night Rider’ (New Eden Records)

This is my latest release and it’s been fun road testing it on the dance floor!

Camelphat & Mathame & Frynn – Many Times (When Stars Align)

I love Frynn’s vocals and am a big big fan of anything that Camelphat does. This gives a beautiful melancholic but driving moment on the dance floor.

Naz ft. Frynn – Into The Night (New Eden Records)

Had the pleasure of working with Frynn on this one which was my label’s debut release.

Eli Brown, Layton Giordani, Offaiah – When I Push (Drumcode)

I used to love playing the tech house version of this years ago and so when Eli Brown and Layton Giordani put their rolling bassline techno version of it out… immediately hooked!

Maceo Plex – Just You & I (Lone Romantic)

Big fan of Maceo’s discography and this one from his latest album ‘93’ is a banger.

Dosem – Extraction (Anjunadeep)

Such a good groove and build up, always get the dance floor going!

Depeche Mode – World In My Eyes (Collective States Cantina Rerub) (High Tide Recordings)

LOVE this one. Colletive States always nail their grooves.

Cirez D – Raptor (Mouseville)

This one comes out a lot in my sets. Such a fun groove and great build up and drop!

Mau P – Your Mind Is Dirty (Experts Only)

Don’t play this if your nan or parents are backstage supporting you. Do play this if you want to get the crowd h*rny.

Mau P - Your Mind Is Dirty

Sasha – Ohmna (Deconstruction)

I’ll always play this if I get the right opportunity to do so. This is my all time favourite track from Sasha and is the perfect track that needs to be played at the perfect time… either at the end of the set, or in the wee hours of the night where you just want to close your eyes and get lost in the music.
