16B’s trilogy album which began back in 2010 has been in the making for 7 years, the title “B1toC3” is short for ‘BeOneToSeeThree’. “After 3 years of touring with Sos in 2010 I began writing again, bringing my old and new machines into sync and designing a new setup where as much creativity was possible in a live situation. I started making long 10 hour transitions of just melodies, then just the drums and then just fx, separating each element I normally write together but focusing on each dimension being so strong that you could listen to it on its own. I wanted each element to feel like it could work with anything that was in that particular key. Making ‘B1toC3’ has brought back my true self again, relaxed, experimental, unpredictable, melodic & dramatic. Robert Smith (The Cure) & Sasha (Dj) who sent me their own personal messages and gave their seal of approval and now im ready to share this with the world.” OMID 16B 2017 A beast of an album… Omid takes us on a journey through his myriad of experiences past present and future. A true trilogy of work, Omid continues to break rules innovate and cover a broad base of textures and genres. Reflecting a day in the life of many-a-clubber rolling through dramatic drops though to luscious moments of beauty Omid’s ‘B1toC3’ is a journey every discerning electronic music fan must witness to believe.

A little over 12 months ago, I sat down with Omid 16B in London for a candid interview at what was an in depth and passionate look at Omid’s views on the state of the music industry. Fast forward to now and Omid and I recently caught up online and we both agreed to revisit our meeting and for me to fire over some questions, to my surprise, Omid fired back with a few of his own back to me. It is not often I am put in the hot seat, I am more akin to asking the questions. So sit back and enjoy… Click link for full interview — >...

Artist : Arnas D & Omid 16B Title : Reincarnations 001 Label : SexOnWax Cat No : SRE001 Release : 4th August 2014 Genre: House, Progressive Its a good day when a SexOnWax record is fired into your promo inbox and today was one of those days. Omid Nourizadeh’s work has been a staple in my mixes since I stumbled across his first Changing Shape EP way back when. From that point on, I’ve had more than a mild fascination for what musical delights he comes up with and this album compiled and mixed alongside Arnas Dambrauskas is as close to a perfect mix album as I’ve ever heard. From the etherial tones and rock guitar of the opening track, Arnas D’s edit of Omid’s ‘The Epic’, the listener is invited into a world of soul and emotion which harks back to a simpler time in dance music, when the music was the focus, not the DJs mixing it. Now before you draw comparisons, its a million miles away from the stadium sound of your Sasha and John Digweeds, but equally has the power to command my attention. Nothing about this mix is rushed, in fact the whole mix is little over an hour and weaves a delicate sonic tale with its well thought out and structured track choices. Indeed, each track has been lovingly edited to fit the mix and 95% of the tracks are by Omid or Arnas themselves adding a new dimension to the tried and tested mix album market. This is very much a close-your-eyes-and-drift-away kinda mix. Everything is perfectly keyed and each track fits snuggly with the last creating a deep, hypnotic vibe. The DJs involved clearly has a shared passion for music, as there never seems to be a moment where you can tell which guy is playing. Thats the whole point of the mix. To move away from the ego driven mix albums of named DJs back towards a more pure sense of music appreciation. And I for one, think thats a wonderful idea. Tracks 1. Omid 16B – The Epic (Arnas D Intro Remix) 2. Arnas D – I Got You (Omid 16B Remix) 3. Arnas D Feat. Gemma – The Edge (Omid 16B Edit) 4. Alex George – Moth (Omid 16B Edit) 5.
