After playing assorted clubs and festivals supporting some of the biggest names in EDM, names he’d spent his youth listening too, rising star, Ryan Eshaghi who blasts out the tunes and lays down the grooves under the name of BLEAM, had an opportunity to reflect just how far he’s come in such a short space of time.
“Opening for acts like JOYRYDE, DVBBS, and Feed Me in late 2019 was surreal. Those guys have been such an inspiration to me, and to share a stage with them was like a dream come true,” explained the DJ/producer from Orange County who is definitely proving a name to watch.
Eshaghi proved something of a virtuoso on the piano at a young age and his tracks have become a firm favorite in clubs across the US, but his arrival on the music scene wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for his other passion – computers.
“The name BLEAM translates in the world of computer science as sending or transmitting electronic data over a network,” revealed Eshaghi, who wears his other hat as a startup consultant and technology advocate. The young producer just finished a degree in Economics/Management at UC Irvine, and works with multiple innovative blockchain companies in helping them scale.
Eshaghi added, “EDM is all about mixing traditional musicianship with technology. The inspiration for BLEAM came from my twin passion for creativity and blockchain, and just like other trailblazers in the scene, I want to bring a new sound to the table.”
With singles such as ‘Antigua’ and ‘Soul Searching’ being hailed for their innovation and being given the seal of approval by global superstars such as Tiesto, R3HAB, and Timmy Trumpet, Eshaghi looks set to take 2021 by storm.
Eshaghi explained, “I really could not live without music, it’s the universal language. 2020 has been such a tough and challenging year on so many levels, but in music, the biggest setback has not been able to play in front of audiences. Performing your music in front of crowds and engaging with them in such a collective yet intimate way is sheer, unbounded joy. It’s why I was so happy to play in the very venues I was dancing in. I hope to continue that in 2021 and beyond.”
