Happa (R&S Records)
Movements is delighted to announce something a little different! Heralding from Leeds, Samir Alikhanizadeh aka ‘Happa‘ is stirring up quite a scene in the UK Bass scene. Still only in his mid-teens his productions are both well executed and original. Displaying a level of creativity that few are managing to achieve. With radio support from Mary Anne Hobbs on KISS FM (Soon to be joining BBC Radio 6), Skream and Zed Bias, it’s safe to say ‘Happa’ is here to stay.Having released ‘Beat Of The Drum‘ on the newly formed Church imprint and a remix of Vondelpark’s ‘Dracula‘on R&S over the last few months has given Samir the confidence to pursue his ambitions in music despite having little formal training. What we’re dealing with here is raw, natural talent and the perseverance to accomplish great things.
