Szafran (pronounced Sha-fran) is a Polish Berlin resident, currently based in Croatia, who in recent times has made his mark upon the deeper sides of techno, house and electronic music. He's known for playing live in the twilight zones of worldwide clubland and festivals, and now for the extended DJ sets usually reserved for artists with bigger riders than their record collections. Known to discerning lovers of vinyl with a slew of releases (under his full name Oskar Szafraniec) on labels such as Rawax, Deset and Cyclo, he feels like now is the ideal time for a change of name, a slight change of direction musically and a new outlook in these weird global times.
