From Story to Sound: Inside Namito’s Groundbreaking Concept Album “Letting Go”
As an influential part of the burgeoning Berlin Techno scene of the 90’s, Namito’s introduction to the music as a teenager fleeing war-torn Iran set the stage for a decades-spanning career devoted to following his passion. His enthusiasm for DJing altered his destiny, as he dedicated his life to discovering more about it, and began sharing his unique musical perspective in Berlin and beyond. Residencies in clubs like Tresor and E-Werk were followed by international gigs, his releases gathering the attention of promoters across Europe and solidifying his name in the industry. With appearances on renowned labels such as Kling Klong, Systematic Recordings, Kompakt, Yoshitoshi and Selador, his productions further spread his global influence through his distinctive sound.
Today, Namito continues to share his unique artistic perspective through his music and paintings, recent highlights including co-producing with artists including Marc Romboy (Innervisions, Kompakt, Bedrock), sharing the stage live with the Dortmund Philharmony Orchestra, and working with the legendary Grandmaster Flash with whom he made parts of the music for the Netflix show called “The Get Down”. Launching his latest project, his new label “Übersee”, Namito will be showcasing the sounds from his friends around the world, as he brings the music to unknown places.
He’ll also be bringing his own music to the forefront with the release of “Letting Go” on November 23rd, a unique conceptual autobiographical album that tells the story of his life when he first came to Berlin and his DJ journey began.
