Nadir Agha aka Ostrich found passion for art, especially in music and films. It wasn’t until 2003 when Montreal-based artist Ostrich explored the depths of his talents as a DJ, producer, and an aspiring filmmaker. His sound carries various flavors of techno, that is bound by deep house, categorizing itself as deep tech-house / techno. His narrative approach to DJ sets under the Ostrich moniker, allows his art to speak through music. His first release generated a lot of interest and was released on Bosphorus Underground.
Dabbling on remixing duties throughout the past few years, Ostrich produced cuts for Argentinean label, Miniatura Records, Mexico’s Dialtone Records, in addition to Toronto-based labels such as Madexx Recordings & Open Concept Recordings. Summer of 2009 marked a giant leap when Ostrich and longtime friend / studio partner Maher Daniel signed “Haute Couture” to Tiefschwarz’s imprint, Souvenir Music. This release garnered lots of praise and was played by the likes of Richie Hawtin and Seth Troxler, including being featured on John Digweed’s Transitions radio show as well as selected for Andre Galluzzi’s mix CD compilation, “The Sound of Berlin 2010”.
In the summer of 2008, Montreal gave birth to a series of events called 13 PERCENT. Thriving to showcase select events in which the creation of electronic music and digital art becomes accessible to a broader public. Founder, curator, and resident DJ, Ostrich has hosted numerous events and invited international guests such as Jimpster, Cassy, Mathias Kaden, Daniel Bell, and Joel Mull to name just a handful.
