My name is Lary Saladin, better known as Saladin and as dirty Lary. I am based out of Chicago and I am an electronic music producer and dj. I grew up to the sounds of 80’s new wave, italo-disco, house and guns n’ roses.I began my career in the music industry at the age of 17 writing lyrics for other artist and eventually became a vocalist myself. This led to live performances and dj gigs in multiple u.s. Cities. I’ve had the opportunity to share the stage with rob base & dj e-z rock, Jessica Eve (who da funk), delta 9, hyperactive, paul johnson, d-unity and other great artists.Early in my career, i was mentored by renowned producer, marc “m.doc” williams who has worked with major labels and artists including janet jackson, madonna and many more. I also worked on many projects with producer josh collins, known for his wonderboy releases that helped build the shr/uc music catalog. The late, mario alayan of strictly rhythm was another mentor of mine, as well.My original production ranges from hard-driven and dark techno, deep progressive and big room electro. I am no stranger to the multiple sub-genres of edm music. I am influenced heavily by the sounds of 80’s new wave and i credit my passion and musical pursuit to many influences including: giorgio moroder, prince, depeche mode, maceo plex, new order and kavinsky to name a few. I love adding different influences to my production to make it modern and cutting edge with a twist of older flavors.My current goal is to keep up to date with this craft and help strive be a pioneer in the modern dance music scene and underground. I strive to make unique music that not only rattle the nightclubs but glide across the radio airwaves. Going forward, i am constantly working on modern music infused with an old school influence.
