Omid Walizadeh is an electronic music producer and DJ from Los Angeles. After 30 legendary years of producing music for major and underground artists, television, and film, Omid’s visionary sound has evolved. Utilizing the melodies of his Iranian childhood spent in Iran and the US, Omid presents a startlingly unique interpretation of the Persian-American diaspora. Omid’s performances are DJ sets blended with original beats, rare pre-revolution Iranian cassettes and vinyl records, and post-revolution “Tehrangeles” sources.
