About Ramin

Ramin Naghachian, a young half-Persian producer living in (or around) Frankfurt (Germany) is known under many different names. The Iranian-born has had releases as: Ramin, Naghachian, Afrotrance, Sad World, Ulysses, Hysterie, ... (to name just the ones we know about :-)

He started as a producer recording life on PCP with warpo-exepeditions like "(Where Is My) Ecstasy?". "Brainticket", his first single for Logic, made his name in the throb-house disco and "Moonchild" is even smoother. Ramin ploughs a similar furrow on a Queen-sampling Frankfurt Beat EP but stays underground under his Afrotrance alter-ego, a duo consisting of Ramin and PIT.

Hysterie, a more commercial eurodance/house-project with female vocals, was founded by Mehmet Sönmez. Rashid Nouri and Ramin Naghachian has joined him later, since summer 1994 Hysterie is just Mehmet & Ramin.

Ramin also created the fantastic harmonious beatoriented environmental ethno soundtrack style Sad World series togther with Dr.Atmo, which has been released on FAX +49-69/450464 (often called "FAX-Label" for short).
