Behdad Nejatbakhshe, best known as UPPERMOST, is a French independent electronic music producer based in Paris. Shaped by the French Touch since a very young age, he crafts each of his compositions with the will to bring instinctive emotion in the spotlight.

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 already generated more than 27 Million combined streams across platforms. In 2015 Mercedes-Benz selected Uppermost single “Disco Kids” to be featured in their Formula One advertising campaign.

In 2017, Uppermost released a 23-track career-spanning collection named Origins (2011-2016) showcasing his deft french-wave touch, liquid disco grooves, and penchant for molten guitar funk, with the main lead single "Beautiful Light" gathering more than 15M plays across streaming platforms and the second one "Flashback" selected this summer for a Vivelle Dop TV ad.

The 28-year-old musician is currently preparing a 14-tracks album set to be the most personal and impassioned work of his career. Coming out in Spring 2018, the release will showcase amazing vocalists from Folk, Hip-hop and Pop backgrounds. Last but not least, the live tour will showcase the amazing performances of a guitarist, a bassist and a drummer, following the lead of Uppermost on keyboard and various control surfaces.
