Sometimes when you start out on a project, you don’t know whether it will just be another album or something so much more for your audience. On our latest peek into the EDM world we are checking out VISNS, the latest EP from NAZAAR. Splitting his childhood between the United States and Pakistan, Farhan Zahir faced a crossroads…how could he incorporate his rich heritage while still moving forward with the current trend of modern dance music? With a slew of independent releases under his belt, NAZAAR has quickly caught the eyes of prominent tastemakers in the industry, including the likes of Carnage, Excision, RL Grime, Zomboy, and many more! NAZAAR has also made sure his music can reach every corner of the globe, with his work finding homes on Never Say Die, Space Yacht, Bassrush, and Columbia Records. While NAZAAR has made most of his success through his independent releases, he’s definitely incorporating himself deeper into the music industry.
“The ‘VISNS’ EP is more than just another project; it stands for a cause that’s greater than me. VISNS is a body of work that’s supposed to help listeners dig deeper into their thoughts and make sense of the visions they have for themselves. In a dark time, I found my peace in writing music, stories with an audible addition to them. Each song on this EP is a story within itself, a story about the inner fight to find peace, the struggle with anger and fear, and the relief of finally letting go. VISNS is a story about me finally finding myself and having absolute clarity about my future. 6 songs, 6 stories, 6 different feelings; that is what VISNS is. I hope everyone who gives it a listen is able to feel what I felt when writing these songs and finds out just a little bit more about their own VISNS.” – NAZAAR
While we have snagged a few tastes of this VISNS project before it finally dropped, we only had a few puzzle pieces to work with and the frame wasn’t even completed. Coming off of his second tease “WAR CRY” with Virus Syndicate, NAZAAR is finally primed and ready to release the full VISNS experience to the masses. Designed to be a guided experience from the mind of NAZAAR, VISNS ultimately becomes a sonic journey through the world of bass music. Each track serves as a different facet of NAZAAR’s sound, from the hauntingly dance-friendly “WITH U” all the way to the almost cinematic “LOVE BURNS”. While VISNS has been baking in the studio a bit longer than we’d like, we’re glad to be able to final have our evening vibes curated by this bass music maestro. NAZAAR should be put on your radar ASAP, if he hasn’t snagged your attention already.
