ASADI, a 20 year old producer from Columbus, Ohio, now local to Orlando FL., is dedicated to introducing a style of music he developed called Persian Trap Music. Offering a cinematically majestic sound with dauntless 808s and elaborate trap rhythms, ASADI shows his unsuspecting listeners that he can play it all live from scratch on his beat pad, the Maschine. The young producer pushes for his generation of electronic musicians to bring liveliness to their sets and to turn their controllers into instruments.
Asadi first started making Persian Trap Music when he was 16, sampling old cassettes his parents used to listen to. He started to play the Persian Tar and Setar, two very old and well-known instruments from the Middle East. Today, he considers them as his main instruments, and incorporates them into his Persian Trap Music (PTM) as much as he can.
At the same time, Asadi was learning how to perform his music live from scratch off the Maschine, as opposed to simply ‘pressing play’ on a traditional DJ setup. The Maschine is a 16 channel beat/sample pad created by Native Instruments, and the company has noticed ASADI’s talents, supporting and reposting a video of him performing on it.
Since his first few shows in front of 700 to 2000 people, ASADI has played at clubs and venues throughout Columbus, and looks forward to doing the same throughout the world.
