"I love music how it can make our emotions flow; how it can change the way we think; the way we love; the way we express ourselves." – Omid 16B

Some DJs and producers have their finger on the pulse – Omid 16B is the pulse. Music runs through his veins – DJ Mag

Omid Nourizadeh also known as Omid 16B, is a DJ whose passion for cutting edge electronic music is unrivalled. As a DJ and producer, songwriter, musician and label boss, Omid has forged a unique and prolific career as one of the world’s most talented and respected musicians and producers.

He’s much regarded as one of the leaders who pioneered the tech house movement back in the early nineties, alongside the likes of Carl Craig, Vince Watson, Craig Richards, Mr C, Steve Bug and Francois K .

With an impressive discography of singles, LPs and compilation albums released on his own imprints, as well as signed to the likes of Eye Q, Hooj Choons, Stomp/EQ, Yoshitoshi, Ministry Of Sound, Tsuba and Bedrock, Omid has maintained the highest quality throughout his prolific career… without any commercial compromise.

From a remix perspective, Omid has put his touch to artists such as Lana Del Rey (to be released on Alola), Morel, Natasha Atlas, The Cure, Gus Gus, UNA, Creamer & K, Danny Howells, François Kevorkian, Steve Lawler through to Pete Moss, Groove Armada, Telex and Deep Dish. Whether it was remixing Depeche Mode’s ‘Enjoy the Silence’ or Prince’s ‘Kiss’, Omid’s bootleg-style assaults have also made him one of the first producers in the field of mashups.

2011 and 2012 have been crazy years for Omid. Following the release of another EP on Alola, the “At Night” EP and the double-A-side ‘Rain / Passion of Zorro’, as well as the follow up ‘The Night / Electronics’ on John Digweed’s Bedrock imprint, Omid maintained a furious touring schedule. From Carl Craig’s Planet E stage at Snowbombing, to the MTV festival in Croatia, the SW4 main stage in London, DJmag’s 20th anniversary show at Space Ibiza, Bestival and the Space Closing party, Omid has moved marquee dance floors worldwide.

Whilst Omid has been busy with a new label management deal to set things up for 2013 he has had time for some remixes for new labels like SideWays and GrooveGarden recordings whilst taking on a few more remixes for the likes of Dave Seaman and also Chris gavin all due out on his own aLOLa label later on in 2013.

A new 16B artist album is set for release which has seen Omid spend 6 years in the making and mastering, with singles like the widely anticipated “Double You” only heard at Omid’s more recent gigs, being released in July 2013.

With his undeniable ability and impeccable pedigree, considered alongside his impressive discography and esteemed reputation and karisma, Omid 16B is a formidable talent and a true pioneer on the international dance circuit.
