The CONDUIT // 016 – Deepak Sharma


// Deepak Sharma  //

New York City’s Deepak Sharma has to be one of the hardest working guys I know, he’s a promoter, label owner, DJ, and producer. His releases with partner Dieter Krause on their Hidden Recordings label have to be some of the most consistently on point in the North American techno scene. Sharma hopes to take things beyond that point, becoming an established international artist, leading quite possibly to a day when we’ll say “We remember when he was just getting started…”. But in the meantime, the guy continues to be the ever toiling underdog. His latest release on Hidden – “Wolkenreise” – is garnering rave reviews and we were able to secure a DJ mix from him in celebration of it.   – Sean-Michael Yoder
