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 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.
A unique and versatile artist, Garmiani had a big year in 2017. Most recently, he unleashed ‘Shine Good’ on Dim Mak, a track featuring the vocal talents of Julimar Santos. Prior to that Santos also featured on ‘Fogo’, which was released by none other than Spinnin’ Records. The catchy track was hugely successful, and has accumulated over 4.5 million on-demand streams alongside support from Laidback Luke, Martin Garrix, Knife Party, Alesso, Axwell Λ Ingrosso and many more
As you dig deeper into Garmiani’s career, it makes sense that he’s come so far in a short space of time. 2016 was the year he remixed ‘Get Loose’ by Lil Jon in fine style, before he released the fierce ‘Bomb A Drop’. It topped Beatport’s Electro House chart, and became the bestselling release from Dim Mark on Beatport in 2016. If that wasn’t enough, it was also the most played track of Tomorrowland in 2016. This was also the year that Garmiani and Steve Aoki set free their first collaboration – a powerful remix of Aoki’s single ‘Youth Dem’ featuring US rap legend Snoop Dogg.
2015 brought with it ‘Jump & Sweat’ from Garmiani. This track was a fusion of electro and dancehall, featuring infectious vocals from high school classmate and friend Sanjin. It remained on the Beatport Electro House chart for 3 months, and also reached the #1 spot on the Beatport Big Room Pulse Chart and is still being played all over the globe.
2014 saw the release of ‘Nomad’, Garmiani’s first single to reach the milestone of 1 million streams on Spotify. It was used in a video clip featuring a dancing baby, which went viral on Facebook, Instagram and Vine. This was also the year that Garmiani topped the Billboard Next Big Sound chart and single ‘Zaza’ was used on American hit TV show ‘Stitchers’.
Thanks to his unique sound, Garmiani’s music has been played in DJ sets by some of the scene’s biggest hitters including Tiësto, David Guetta, Alesso, Axwell ^Ingrosso, Afrojack, Hardwell, Major Lazer, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki plus many more.
Another string to Garmiani’s bow is his ability to deliver DJ sets that are bursting with energy – he’s been DJing on a weekly basis since he was 16 and has got the skills. As a global touring DJ, he’s played everywhere from Pacha Ibiza to Tomorrowland, Japan and China.
