Farhan Zahir was raised between Pakistan and America. His signature sound is a combination of his roots and his western upbringing, the hidden riches of the Middle East, with the prominent sounds of electronic dance music. These middle eastern roots heavily influencing his sound and overall brand, you can feel a deep connection to NAZAAR and his project.
Running off the steam of track “A Dance With Death,” which received heavy support from the bass community, has been played out by Excision, RL Grime and ultimately added to the Lost Lands Compilation in 2019. NAZAAR hit with a full 5 track EP titled ‘The Legacy’ on Never Say Die in early 2019. Following the hype of the EP, he released ‘BLITZKRIEG’, a brutal festival weapon in collaboration with Carnage. The traction the song received from artists like DJ Snake and Diplo helped it reach significant streams worldwide in a short period of time. Coone’s official remix of the song also pushed the track to new heights. He has since released an array of singles and the ‘Overclocked’ EP on Bassrush Records which features a collaborative track with Pixel Terror.
Though the 21 year old Texas based producer has found himself a successful space in the heavier dubstep realm, we see NAZAAR taking a turn to new sounds. Expanding his reach beyond festival bangers and what’s gonna hit the hardest, we can expect a world of new sounds from NAZAAR in the future. His new brand and sound telling us a different story than the one we all once knew.
NAZAAR has had an undeniably successful start to his career and has already begun to distinguish himself from the rest of the pack. He is well on his way to climbing the ranks and becoming one of dance music’s most recognizable figures.
