Siavash is the mysterious Canadian legend behind the chart topping record label You Plus One. This eccentric artist is a 25+ year master DJ and an accredited innovator of the Northwest underground music scene. Born in Iran to deaf parents during the Islamic revolution, he emerged from a challenging past to build a powerful presence in the electronic music industry.
Siavash is an animated performer best known for being a musical journey-weaving wizard. He honed his brilliant technical skills during the vinyl-only days of the 90's. His iconic and unmistakable sound resembles his charming personality that draws so many to him: powerful, dirty, soulful, magnetic and emotional. Admittedly cheesy tagline ‘last night Siavash saved my life’ - a play on classic ‘last night a DJ saved my life’- echoes real sentiments of loyal fans who have described his sets as hopeful and deeply therapeutic. He gains a cult-like following wherever he plays.
In addition to being the creative-architect behind successful underground venues and brands, including his own viral afterhours, Siavash has carved a touring career with his addictive combo of style and stage presence. He has played regularly at top venues and festivals around the world including Sisyphos (Berlin), Thuishaven (Amsterdam), BPM (Tulum), Lightning in a Bottle (LA), Club Space (NYC), and is currently an international resident at Latin America’s most legendary club, BarAmericas.
As label boss of You Plus One Siavash is very involved in the musical direction of each track that is published. He handpicked the YPO roster which now boasts leading international talent including Rodriguez Jr., Oliver Schories, Super Flu, and Einmusik. Watch out for his upcoming original releases and special colab project written with techno icons Pig&Dan.

YOU PLUS ONE
House and Techno Music Label
You Plus One is Siavash's brain child. Conceived from the idea to unite and promote our Northwest electronic music scene, You Plus One emerged originally as a successful attempt to keep the house and techno scene alive locally in Vancouver, Canada. Since 2011, it has carved a name for itself by throwing legendary events for music lovers, jump-starting many careers in the industry, lending + creating the sound and image for different venues, supporting and mentoring local artists, and building connections with the greater international community. It has now evolved into a music label that has already garnished support from top industry professionals even in its infancy. YPO's goal is to guide talent, expose new people to the beautiful, artistic, and underground world of house and techno, and ultimately help represent Canada within the global underground scene.
