Tonight's Show - Iranian Underground House Producers

Tonight's show has just circumvented internationally acknowledged internet restrictions to reach us from Iran.

Producer and DJ Bitmarx, who we caught live in 2012 at The Egg, London, has put together an hour of pulsing beats by Iran-based and diaspora producers. For this Free Lab Radio show, tonight's line up is of near-clinical beats that allow you to posit your own fancies on the canvas, as you weave and wend around a dancefloor, your own melodies and themes are permitted to come through.

Tech-savvy Bitmarx hails from a community of producers who adhere to the bass, posting things like this below their tracks "WARNING.. ! If you aren't listening to this music with some form of a bass speaker you are missing out !!!!!"

Bitmarx, who's played venues like O2 alongside Zane Lowe and remixes Steve Lawlor, made his first production in the studio for the Australian synthpop group Parralox, a remix that went on to win a global remix competition and was released with other mixes from Mark Reeder (The remixer of Pet Shop Boys, New Order) and Juan Del Toro (Gina G, Delta Goodrem) on  the EP Sharper Than A Knife EP. However Bitmarx doesn't merely play tracks back to back, he'll bring his own mixer and build up the track elements live on the decks.

To this day, Bitmarx has created a series of remixes for an impressive range of artists such as Hernan Cattaneo, Steve Lawler, Tiefschwarz, Steve Angello, Booka Shade, Kaskade and Nic Fanciulli to name a few. Bitmarx remixes have been played out on dance floors around world and have gained appreciation from superstars such as Dean Coleman, house music icon Satoshi Tomiie and techno pioneer Richie Hawtin
