Born in Leeds, England, Armin Ameli traveled and grew up in different countries, including England, Switzerland, Iran, and the United States. He came across his true passion for electronic music as it blossomed in Europe during his childhood.
Ameli got the chance to speak to Josh Gallaghan during his 2010 world tour with ATB, who guided him in furthering his growing desire to make original beats. He also met Paul Baumer and Maarten Hoogstraten (known as members of the Bingo Players), whom influenced him to the stylistics of the Dutch House industry and its production process. They encouraged him to produce his own EDM beats after meeting with them in Orlando during their October 2010 US tour.
In December of that year, Ameli released his first unofficial mashup, “Better Empty Street” for ATB and “Late Night Alumni.” Soon after, he was booked for a special event at Gainesville’s top nightclub, Sharab Lounge, by one of the main local promotional companies, Dynasty Promotions. This one-night special event sold out the venue and turned into one of Ameli’s main residencies within Florida.
In August 2012, Ameli moved to Dallas to further his musical endeavors. He met another upcoming trance producer/DJ from Seattle, Tejaswi, in which they collaborated on several production projects. Their latest track, “Rush” (Released TBA), is a progressive track featuring the talented vocalist, JessP. Ameli & Tejaswi’s recent releases are Spark and Sheraya, collaborated with another young vocalist, Rhea Raj.
