Artist, Producer, Remixer
Sudad Ghadaban begins his musical career in the middle of the eighties. Predominantly inspired by the contemporary black music, but also by the italo disco music of the eighties, he writes as teenager already catchy and danceable songs. After finishing highschool, Sudad Ghadaban moves to the Ruhr Area where he builds up his small project-studio in Wuppertal and dedicates to the production of electronic dance music. There he starts to work together with numerous local DJs and musicians.
He makes his breakthrough in 1997 with the title “No More Pain”, released under the project name “Modern Art” on More Music, as a result of a co-production with “Planet-E Music”. This title produced in a “euro dance style” appears also in several German and some other European Dance Charts. In 1997 Sudad Ghadaban meets the Düsseldorf’s House and Techno Producer Frank Stertkamp. Moved by the same musical preferences, they found their own music production company “Subdivide Music Productions”. Since both producers love the warm jazzy deep-house sound, as well as the harsher trance / techno sound, the decision of establishing two independent projects is soon made. The first successfully named “Hi-Lite Scan” (House/Deep House), the second “Atlantique”. So far, several titles running under both projects have been released.
In 1998 follows the inclusion in the Publisher Warner / Chappell. While the former Sony/Epidrome act Atlantique celebrates his debut with the Maxi CD “Dreams are here to stay”, playing stylistically rather in the UK-Vocal-Trance style, the project Hi-Lite Scan, tends to endorse more its native Deep House sound. In 2001 Hi-Lite Scan’s single “Work The Box”, reaches the first place of the international Discomania sale charts. The single is also released as the only German production on the British sampler “House Warming 2” by Ministry of Sound.
Up to 2006 follow numerous other releases with artists such as Boysie White, James Wilson and several remixes for Fuel/WEA Records.
After a long creative pause, Sudad Ghadaban is back. Under his new project named “ Sudad G” he co-produces several songs by GROOVE ADDIX, Eduardo Tristao, H@K, DJ Geehan, Alex Milla, Olli Wallner as well as some remixes for Adrienne Nails, Layla Jayne, Sophia May, J.M. Browne, Tascha Johnson and Liah Walker from the U.S, and Jermaine Dalrymple, Debbie Sharp, Linnette Talyor, Janine Johnson, Channel Blair, Jenny Cruz and Ronnie Canada from UK and Delorean Suite from Irland.
He belongs by now to the regular remixers of Quantize Recordings (U.S.), Karmic Power Records, Phunky Rabbit Records (UK), Attractive Music (Germany) und E/M Music (U.S.).
2014 follows the inclusion in the publisher ROBA Musik Verlag GmbH in Hamburg.
