SunTzu hails the fifth artist album release from electronic music pioneer Omid Nourizadeh, aka 16B, featuring 18 new tracks that exhibit a multitude of musical facets from a talent who has been innovating at the forefront of cutting edge electronic dance for more than 20 years. The album is named after the Chinese philosopher, strategist and writer, Sun Tzu – “I believe Sun Tzu was actually like a collection of people and ideas through one century and the album has a similarity with many mixed emotions, ideas, with so many different Omid’s, but all under the name 16B”, says Omid. Illuminated with diverse compositions that flow between pretty melodic soundscapes to the potent gritty sounds of the underground, Omid joins the dots between emotive electronica and dreamy ambient gems through to animated indie, techno, electro and deep house grooves. “The tracks all collide somehow into a full picture of what 16B is about on every angle – there’s times you’ll want to jump up and down as much as lay back and just listen.”
“If this becomes the last album I’m ever going to make, I’d die happy knowing there’s something here for everyone! I’m not into designing anything to please a certain group or style, however this for me is the closest thing to covering all the styles I’ve loved to make and still enjoy listening to it now as much as in my naive and younger days. There’s such a fine line between the love to create new things when you’re young and still loving the art in it as much when you think you’ve wisened up or far more experienced!” – Omid 16B
