With his roots deeply engrained in hip-hop and dancehall, Garmiani is a rare breed of electronic dance champion. Producer, former MC and all-round Swedish heavyweight, the Dim Mak favourite turned globetrotting contender comes with a highly evolved sound and support scaling every corner of the continent. When he isn’t rocking the globe’s biggest stages himself, you can be sure that one of his tunes is. It’s a sure fire indicator of how far he’s come since the childhood memories of blowing his family’s speakers scratching records, but 2016 is all for the taking where Sweden’s hottest dance export is concerned.
Garmiani signed to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records in 2013 and released ”Rumble EP”. The title track ”Rumble” gained a top 10 position on the Beatport electronica chart and was featured in the video game ”Need for Speed Rivals”. The 2014 follow-up single ”Nomad” was the first Garmiani single to reach 1 million streams on Spotify. The track was used in a video clip with a dancing baby that went viral on Vine, Instagram and Facebook.
In July 2014 Garmiani hit #1 on USA’s Billboard Next Big Sound chart and his single ”Zaza” was featured in the American TV show ”Stitchers”. In August 2015 he released ”Jump & Sweat”, an Electro/Dancehall fusion featuring vocals from high school classmate and friend Sanjin. Jump & Sweat stayed on the Beatport Electro House chart for 3 months and reached the #1 spot on the Beatport Big Room Pulse chart in November 2015. 2016 started off with the release of Garmiani’s remix of Lil Jon’s ”Get Loose” and was followed by his single ”Bomb A Drop” which reached the top 10 of Beatport’s Electro House chart. Just in time for Miami Music Week 2016, Garmiani and Steve Aoki released their first collaboration – the remix of Aoki’s single “Youth Dem” with Snoop Dogg.
Garmiani’s music has been featured in the DJ sets of David Guetta, Tiesto, Hardwell, Afrojack, Avicii, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Major Lazer, Nicky Romero and Steve Aoki among others. He has remixed Steve Aoki, Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon, Arash & Sean Paul and Deorro.
DJing on a weekly basis since the age of 16, Garmiani is known for his fast paced mixing and high-energy DJ sets. He is a global touring DJ, playing clubs like Pacha Ibiza and festivals like Tomorrowland. He has also toured the USA along with Steve Aoki, Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame and Pharrell Williams.
