Inspired by mythical periods and places in dance music history – David Mancuso’s The Loft, the Amnesia Terrace and Anjuna Beach in the early 90s, and Panorama Bar in the modern day – Paramida loves to play music that delicately spans across genres and eras. She’s not content to just pay homage to the past – with her label Love On The Rocks, she’s bringing the dusty corners of outsider dance culture into the present day. Many of the unlikely and treasured connections that form the backbone of Love On The Rocks have been established as Paramida has travelled the world, performing at clubs and festivals across Europe as well as Asia, Australia, the US and Latin America.
Paramida’s style is playful yet sincere, purposeful and hopeful and, of course always with a dash of the cosmic. Blending proto-house to trance, percussive gold with high-energy techno, Italian dream house and irresistible new beat, she is truly committed to digging for treasure across genres and eras. The Panorama Bar resident is a confident, talented and provocative artist in a city whose musical rules are begging to be broken.
Her singular thirst for often obscure, always incredible music has led her to bookings at the world’s most renowned nightclub, including a residency at Berghain’s Panorama Bar. In 2020 Paramida focused on producing her own music, releasing her debut EP Dream Ritual on LOTR and, most recently, her EP Moonrise VII. Most recently, her track ‘Konbanwa (Ibiza Mix) was released on the compilation Sounds From The Iranian Ultraverse and she has done a rambunctious remix for Hercules & The Love Affair.
But Paramida isn’t limited as a DJ and producer – she’s a passionate proponent of music and music history. And now, she’s bringing her inimitable style to her BBC Radio 1 residency and has even done a feature in Vogue magazine. Devoted to the euphoric potential of nightlife, Paramida is one of dance music’s true characters; a passionate proponent of music and music history, a devoted resident and, quite simply, a DJ always worth hearing.
