Armen Miran’s love and passion for electronic music genres started at a very young age; spending the majority of his time in the underground music scene.
In 2006, Armen began his journey producing electronic ambient and dub techno sounds. He was booked for his very first gig at Armenia’s well-known club called Calumet, where he left the crowd speechless with his Ambient and Deep House tunes.
A few years ago Armen Miran announced his new label Hoomidaas Records, and in the short amount of time since the inception of the label, it has not only boldly entered the industry, but has done so with such promise, that we cannot wait to see what their future holds, and also that of the talented Armen Miran who delivers a deep and mystical mix for Balance Selections.

When I turned 13 years old, I moved to Armenia and I would frequent the pubs/clubs a lot which played electronic music.
