Multi-talented musician and artist Namito has remained an important figure in the very fabric of Berlin’s Melodic House & Techno scene, right since its humble beginnings. 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. 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.
A bit more than 9 years after he released his debut album “ELEVEN” on Kling Klong, the Iranian-German artist Namito now has finished his second artist album called “Letting Go” which was released in December 2018 on his new imprint “Übersee”. His autobiographical concept album charts the story of his early years, when he was forced to flee his native homeland Iran, as a 13 year old boy and plots the struggle of him coming to terms with growing up as a young refugee, on his own in West Berlin.
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.
