Shortly after emerging in 2007, Sherif quickly built a reputation as one of the Detroit’s most dexterous and innovative new talents. While performing his unique brand of tech-house in venues throughout the midwest, Sherif was brought to the attention of the Bleu Room; Detroit’s premier electronic music experience (2001-2009) by DJ/producer Yos (Ultra | Nervous); It was here, that Sherif skyrocketed to the upper echelons of the Detroit electronic music scene, opening for Josh Gabriel (Gabriel Dresden) during the weekend of “Movement 2008” (Paxahau’s annual Detroit Electronic Music Festival). The success of this performance secured Sherif a rotation as one of the Bleu Room’s newest permanent resident DJs.
With his new residency in place, Sherif joined the lineup at Forward Music, a monthly Internet radio program, broadcasting on Frisky Radio. With concentrated momentum, he returned to the decks and began mixing new tracks; making his internet radio debut alongside Dutch electro-house lord, Marco V. Sherif’s following grew across the Midwest as he established residences in Cleveland (Anatomy) and Windsor, Canada (Boom Boom Room) while continuing to impress his supporters and skeptics in Detroit (Bleu ). Other notable artist Sherif has performed with include; Donald Glaude, Ferry Corsten, Josh Gabriel, Steve Porter, max graham, Sultan Ned shepard, Second Sun & John Acquaviva.
In 2009, Sherif came out of the gate armed and ready with his new release, “Kithara”, a melodic crossover track created side by side with renowned producer, Mike Mikhjian. With resounding support from artists like Kenneth Thomas and Randy Boyer, “Kithara” showcases Sherif’s distinctive beat intricacies and wicked production prowess.
Whether in the studio or behind the decks, Sherif’s unique style is born out of the musical influences from his childhood — traditional Ethiopian sounds, classic orchestra and jazz. Realizing the power of music at a young age, Sherif set out to share his passion for pulsating rhythms with others.'
