Askery, who's real name is Shwan Askari, is a new Swiss talent who is currently setting global dance floors and radio airwaves alight. Formerly recognized under his DJ Rim pseudonym, Askery is a DJ, producer and sound engineer on the up.
Performing as DJ Rim, Shwan was first spotted by NRJ Radio back in 2007 and went on holding a residency with the station hosting 'NRJ Extravadance' – the biggest French-speaking radio show in Switzerland with over 90,000 listeners and a broadcast that brought together local talent with a number of the world's biggest DJs from Tiësto to Avicii, Afrojack, The Swedish House Mafia, etc.
His productions have already been supported extensively by NRJ and released through a range of renowned labels such as Scorpio Music (FR), Roster Music (ES), and Roton Music (RO). Recorded and released under his DJ Rim stage name - 'World Love' gained widespread acclaim in 2011. Featuring the vocal talents of Kalenna Harper – the U.S. based singer best known for her collaborations with P. Diddy and Diddy Dirty Money – 'World Love' gained worldwide exposure, support from a range of influential tastemaker DJs and has currently received over 500,000 views on YouTube.
Shwan is now set to release 'Fall Into Me' – his first single as Askery. Recorded at Fenix Studio (Staten Island – NYC) in collaboration with Frankie Z, 'Fall Into Me' is an instantly infectious vocal track that is gaining serious momentum. With club support from the likes of Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Erick Morillo, Axwell and Paul Van Dyk already secured from the promotion of the instrumental version – which was previously called 'Wonderland' – further worldwide radio support is set to propel 'Fall Into Me' as a stand-out radio smash.
