A native of Tehran, Amir Javasoul began DJing after being inspired by the style and productions of Chicago house legend Derrick Carter. Following his beginnings in the Montreal rave scene, he soon began playing parties and refining his skills, paving the way for the next chapter. Moving to Paris in 2001, Amir would hold residencies at many of the clubs in the city: Queen, Studio 287, Terassa, RedLight as well as PlastikPeople. He would go on to tour throughout Europe and North America and play venues such as The End, Ministry of Sound London, Pacha Ibiza, Crystal Istanbul, Boa Toronto or Cafe d’Anvers.
Aside from being heavily influenced by Chicago house, Amir’s musical taste has also been shaped by DJ Harvey as well as Ricardo Villalobos. He developed his own unique style of mixing house and techno.
Since returning to Montreal in 2011, Amir has kept up a busy schedule playing or holding residencies at most of the city’s main venues. Highlights include Stereo Montreal, Piknic Electronik, Igloofest and sharing the decks with Fabric London’s Craig Richards.
Amir had his Fabric London Room 1 debut on January 2015, playing alongside Ricardo Villalobos and Craig Richards, a career highlight. He was back in Room 1 in April of the same year, sharing this time the decks with his longtime friends of Apollonia.
On the production front, Amir’s best friend and studio partner Maher Daniel are known as Creatures Of Habit. They have been working on some new and exciting projects this year. Expect an upcoming EP soon.
Amir currently resides between Berlin and Montreal.
