No, the other half of electronic duo Deep Dish hasn't forsaken us, as I had previously reported. But Sharam's scheduled after-hours set at Trinity Nightclub must have come together fairly quickly and recently, because word about the show didn't land in my inbox through official channels. Doesn't mater--dude will be here anyway.
Sharam has been on tour in support of his solo debut Get Wild, a successful braiding of hip-hop and electronica that favors neither. As critic Bruce Tantum rightly notes: "It's a densely packed, populist album with a little something for everyone, often within the same track." It features guest appearances by Kid Cudi, Mario Vasquez, and indie-folk songstress Anousheh Khalili, who appears on two tracks, including the intense "Be the Change." (Her voice blazes across Sharam's bleak and blipped-out soundscape.) Even P. Diddy shows up and comes off OK, which ain't bad for that knucklehead. Though suffused in the blur of amateur videography, the clip below provides a preview of what Seattle clubbers may experience Saturday: cowgirl chic glazed in crimson. I'm down.
P.S. Just caught a notification about Sharam's appearance in the comments section of my previous post. It's dated May 6, so I guess it's been out there for at least a week.
