Shares "Make A Change" Video w/ Culture Collide
Uppermost (aka Behdad Nejatbakhshe) comments, "When I make music I'm in a state of full focus, it's like everything flows and I forget about where I am and what I'm doing. We worked on this video as a way to capture and visually translate this very powerful state of mind. We could say it feels like you become a part of your own art work in these few seconds of pure flow."
Perseverance is a 14-track collection that sees Uppermost emerge with the most personal and impassioned work of his career. Shaped by French Touch from a very young age, he crafts each composition with the will to bring instinctive emotion to the spotlight. The album showcases vocalists from folk, hip-hop, and pop backgrounds, and will be followed by a live tour soon to be announced
Uppermost released his Origins (2011-2016) LP in February of 2017. The 23-track career-spanning collection showcased his deft french-wave touch, liquid disco grooves, and penchant for molten guitar funk and included hit tracks such as Beautiful Light, Reminder, and Mistakes which have generated more than 40 million combined streams.
In addition to releasing music via his own independent label UPPWIND, Uppermost has released music through labels such as Sony and Ministry Of Sound and done official remixes for Dada Life and Lemaitre. His hit tracks "Flashback" and "Beautiful Light" have generated more than 40 Million combined streams. In 2015 Mercedes-Benz selected Uppermost's single "Disco Kids" to be featured in their Formula One campaign.
