It was early 2012 that ripples of hype started to reverberate around an unknown artist by the name of Amirali and in July of that year his ‘In Time’ LP was released on Crosstown Rebels to critical acclaim. Clash Magazine shortlisted it for album of the year, Metro UK newspaper named ‘My Way’ their track of the year, whilst Resident Advisor pronounced it “an example of perfect craftsmanship”. The album transcended genres and won an army of fans around the globe.
Amirali received widespread support from BBC Radio1 culminating in him being invited to perform live at the very first video broadcast of the highly coveted BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. Since then he has forged a career as an uncompromising musician / songwriter and live performer which has seen him touring the globe performing at some of the world’s most prestigious music venues including: Berghain (Berlin), Fabric (London), Opera House (Vienna), D-Edge & Warung (Brazil), Arma 17 (Moscow), Warehouse Project (Manchester) and Trade (Miami) to name but a select few.
Major plans are already afoot for 2017 for Amirali. He launched his own record label, ‘Dark Matters’ and he has just finished his 2nd studio album. Although retaining his unique sound, this album looks set to be a departure from his debut. Amirali has also been working on a new live show which he will tour after the album release.
