Behdad Nejatbakhshe, best known as UPPERMOST, is a French independent electronic music producer based in Paris. Shaped by the French Touch since a very young age, he crafts each of his compositions with the will to bring instinctive emotion in the spotlight.
In addition to releasing music via his own independent label UPPWIND, Uppermost has released music through labels such as Sony and Ministry Of Sound and done official remixes for Dada Life and Lemaitre. His hit tracks “Flashback“ and “Beautiful Light“ have already generated more than 27 Million combined streams across platforms. In 2015 Mercedes-Benz selected Uppermost single “Disco Kids” to be featured in their Formula One advertising campaign.
Coming out February 2017 the 23-track career-spanning collection LP Origins (2011-2016) is Uppermost’s first full-length release since 2014’s Evolution. It follows 2015’s New Moon EP and 2016’s Impact EP.
Recorded in Paris between 2011 and 2016, the ambitious 23-track collection celebrates the Parisian producer’s early career through today, showcasing his deft french-wave touch, liquid disco grooves, and penchant for molten guitar funk.
The 27-year-old musician weaves in and out of genres throughout the album’s 100-minute runtime, seamlessly transitioning between atmospheric and ambient, deep soulful house, and driving rhythms punctuated by pulsating bass, all while staying true to his French House roots.
