“A melodic, synth-driven bit of radiant melancholy featuring vocals by Parisian singer Jack Lena.”
“That Parisian cool is still right at the forefront of “Make A Change”.
“The relaxing tune (‘Selfless’) pairs beautiful backing vocals with slick instrumentation in a cinematic way that hits just right.”
This Song Is Sick
“His moody, contemplative brand of electronic music is simultaneously accessible and deep, encouraging listeners to tap into emotions that are undiscovered or long tucked away.”
“If there was any doubt that wavy Persian-Parisian producer Uppermost, AKA Behdad Nejatbakhshe, is continuing the French trajectory of leading the electronic genre, this live production of “Step By Step” with Sôra should dispel all.”
“If you’ve been a fan of French house in the past five years, you’ve undoubtedly heard of Uppermost.”
‘Forever Present’ is a blistering return, searing electronics matched to an innate melodic touch.”
“Utilizing twinkling synths and a slow and steady marching bass, ‘Overcome’ sounds like wonder and imagination distilled into a three-minute song”

LISTEN: Uppermost – ‘Creative Infinity’
The self-taught DJ and producer originally hails from Bordeaux, France where he seeks to establish positive emotion with his music. Recently expanding into the world of filmography, Uppermost’s track, ‘Love’ was featured in an uplifting project directed by Joseph Carlin from Transfixion. Deeply involved in the world of music even when not creating his own, Uppermost can be found assisting other rising artists via his label. Musicians such as Kasket Club, Medium Douce and Wolfgang Wee have all walked alongside Uppermost upon his journey.
Refusing to limit himself with his influences, Uppermost receives musical inspiration from the likes of Bon Iver, Floating Points, Tycho, Lane 8, and Crazy P. Pushing his own boundaries, he seeks out film and visual art, specifically the allegory of street art as well as the aforementioned musicians. The resulting sound takes him close to the likes of Lemaitre, Petit Biscuit and Madeon while maintaining his individuality.
Balancing both experimentation and groundedness, Uppermost opens ‘Creative Infinity’ with cheerful Eastern musical influences. With this track, the producer returns to his known sound of gentle electronic French house. Creating an effortlessly cool soundscape with synths and ambient electronics, the single gradually builds. A steady bassline gains momentum as it develops within the listener’s ears.
Expressing himself in ways only an artist can, Uppermost tells us, “In times when the mind creates boundary and limits over every thought, art creates a shelter of freedom”
