capital Berlin where he started the legendary party “Heavy Rotation” at Tresor club. Acts like Fatman
Scoop, Tony Touch, Mr. Cee, PF Cuttin, Spinbad, Cash Money, Evil D and many more payed a visit.
Given the success of club nights in Berlin the company “Heavy Rotation Booking” was founded by Siavash
Aghaiepour and his brother Roozbeh Aghaie Pour as booking agency and Hip-Hop Network.

Management European tour, where he also brought 50 Cent to Europe for the first time. Both their DJs,
Green Lantern (Eminem) and WhooKid (50 Cent) played afterparties throughout Europe.

2011 Siavash Aghaiepour and Roozbeh Aghaie Pour started the party concept “Prestige Sundays” in

clubs as their clients. Close relation- and friendships that Siavash Aghaiepour maintains to Artists and
