He has become re-known around the Brisbane dance/club-gigging circuit as the ‘sax man’ (also performing as a keyboardist) jamming and adlibbing with a large host of Brisbane’s top DJ’s and musicians, but mainly with his Latin/house/electro outfit Dope’n’Dusted.

“Few actually know me as a song writer/ producer its something I’ve kept on the down low for a few years now but thanks to the Internet and myspace I have come out of my shell a bit.”-Sharif D-

Taking huge influences from film music, jazz, fusion, electronica, hip-hop, trip-hop, classical, deep house, Latin, French lounge, reggae and other groove based genres Sharif’s music takes on a multitude of emotion and range. With the obvious dance and electronica influences he tries to integrate different musical elements and sounds into the (at times) melancholic and often funky mix of his music.
