Genre: Chill & Downtempo

Stage: Chill Island

Shantaraam/Tauren: two projects that fall somewhere between bass music and the sounds of techno.

Shantaraam/Tauren is a multi-genre being who helms from an island in the Arabian Gulf (Bahrain). Known as a melting pot of ethnicities and cultures, this diversity is heavily reflected in the sound, an array of genre’s, a fusion of worldly sounds, psychedelic soundscapes, dub-laden grooves, melancholic techno, and heavy basslines. Not confined to one genre, constantly evolving with the trends, ever pursuing new ways to express the self.

Shantaraam/Tauren has played worldwide as well as around Australia and New Zealand. Performances are often in collaboration with live musicians to merge the worlds of live and electronic with an improvised approach.
This is my new podcast series Surreal Melbourne. Here I interview creatives of all disciplines. In this long format discussion/conversation; I ask the questions that unravel the many experiences that shape the selected artist. I dissect their drive and gain insight into how they see the world through their creative expression. Gaining an understanding of their viewpoints and perspectives, I hope the conversation serves as an inspiration to all that wish to create in any medium or form of expression, be it art, music, or the infinite choices out there.
