Biography

From the Caspian Sea and the mountains of Iran, Ali Dahesh began a childhood of adventures that set him apart from all his friends. Born in Tehran, his family left Iran when he was six years old due to rising violence in the region he still identifies as home. As the war progressed and violence left no mercy, Ali and his family had no choice but to journey to neighbouring Turkey and Greece, and then finally came to settle in Saskatchewan, Canada in January of 1992. While receiving a Bachelors of Science in Electronic Systems Engineering from the University of Regina, Ali uncovered a passion for music production and began expressing his art through the creation of beats. Not before long, he became the founder and chief operator of Deheshi Empire productions. Since moving to Toronto to pursue a career in music, Ali has been involved in numerous projects with a variety of artists, from instrumentalists to singers and poets, providing him with the opportunity to become a more versatile and comprehensive producer and lyricist.
Having grown up in a low income housing community catered to immigrants from all corners of the world, Ali’s beats were inspired by his cultural and childhood experiences. Hip Hop was very prominent and integrated in such multinational communities. Ali has a diverse set of friends from other countries making communications a challenge amongst them. Ali found that Hip Hop was a great avenue to close the gaps amongst these people from different backgrounds. To Ali music was and always will be the “universal language� a common entity shared by all living beings in this world.
In Toronto, Ali’s performance experiences began at the Ryerson Urban Hip Hop Union in September of 2006 where he introduced himself to the hip hop community and engaged in the opportunity to share his voice and his music. He traveled to the local city of Guelph, Ontario to perform at Cuba Vive presented by DJ D Boys featuring Kamau and Telmary. Ali also participated in an international festival to raise hip-hop awareness and education to the citizens of Havana, Cuba through the 4th Annual Lafabrik Simposio Festival in August of 2008.
Before leaving Toronto in May 2009, Ali revealed his newest beats at three live beat show casings between March and May of 2009. The release of his first album “Stereo Typical World – A War Story� in May 2009 is described as a powerful life story that inspires many who not only relate to hardship, but to those who are willing to feel the struggles through a journey expressed by powerful words. To those who know him, and to those who have only just met him, Ali expresses his soul-hearted strength through his soul productions. Through his recent residency in Vancouver, Ali hopes to continue working with his collaborators such as DJ D Boys, Antony of Egypt, Prince Armond, Tahirih, Aiden Adriana, Tewolde Issac, Telmary, Kamau, Nokz, Unknown Mizery, Spin, Logical Ethix, Famous, Junia T, CubanFriday, J Mizz, Colinout, KTS and many other talented artist locally and around the world. He hopes to continue collaborating with artists everywhere to increase awareness to stop world violence through the power of music.

Lyrics

The Birds Mission

Written By: Ali Dahesh

The Birds Mission (by Ali Deheshi aka Ali Dahesh)

(VERSE 1)

Conscious on an evolution state
Not a borderline
Fan of growth
Partition least of favorites
Defect is acceptable
Additions is always welcome
Flaw comes back into play
Play it safe
Comfortable no hesitation
Confident
Show the work for the formula
A chalk or a pencil
Teacher or a student
Assessment
Systems reflection
So much fear built inside
Classrooms to small
Move to the gymnasium
Microphones in front
Thousands of desks
Synthetic sound
Big clock
On a tick tock
Prof up and down
Tip tap
Chill
Sit back
Digital signal waves assumed
Can’t be exact though
Analog is in affect
Every second a new distraction
Subtraction of focus
Objective
Just to get through this
Why did you do this?
Feel the rush much

(CHORUS X2)

The Future based on you
Create your mission
Ears open
Listen
What does it tell you?
Every battle has a victory and defeat
Strategize to eliminate tragedy

(VERSE 2)

Stress till release of results
Feeling unsure unease
On these hopes to accomplish
It ain’t easy
Survival on path
Networks helped pass
At last exhale inhale
Fresh missions
Only a change of a season
Institution of the mind
Offerings on paths
Accepted from within us
Excitement over the unsolved
Gifted and concerned
Or Gifted and Curious
Cure for future
Periodic table
Got me concerned and worried
Sound frequencies got me searching
Serious Dimension
Entrance to a hidden truth
Time travel is possible
Semesters done
Were did the time go
It traveled
Where’s the proof
Give me the chalk
In fact give me the mic
Students rip test apart
Agree to projects
Disagree to military actions
Mind to make us better
Not worst
Grow the knowledge
What do we really know

(CHORUS X2)
