He may be from Miami, but acclaimed house DJ Behrouz Nazari – known simply as Behrouz when he’s behind the decks – has always had a close relationship with Switzerland, which he’ll be renewing when he hits Zurich’s Hive club on Saturday night.
Behrouz has made a name for himself in the underground electronic scene over the years thanks to his deep, punchy and soulful take on dancefloor-focused house, which has led him to clubs and festivals around the world. This includes frequent sets at Zurich’s Club Q (sadly no longer with us – read what Behrouz told us about Club Q here, back in 2017) and the epic, wild, desert ride that is Burning Man festival, where Behrouz became a regular on the mighty Robot Heart bus – an actual bus converted into a mobile festival stage, armed with rack-upon-rack of hefty speakers.
It suited Behrouz’s uplifting sound perfectly, and you can hear that sound for yourself when the man himself takes charge of the sonics at Hive’s long-standing club night, Rocket (Rakete). He’ll be headlining a bill that also features a host of other DJ talent, including Animal Trainer, Acid Flora, Dario D’Attis and Kyuubi. It promises to be a fine night of forward-thinking grooves.
Behrouz plays Rocket at Hive, Zurich, on Saturday February 26.
