Sonic enthusiast from underwater Beirut. The fish takes you on a trip with undercurrents of soul and rhythms. A filmmaking graduate, his love of music translated into sound design and scores for films. His surroundings affect majorly his artistic expression, and the city of Beirut is no exception: a schizophrenic way of mixing and producing; mashing up sounds of soul, jazz, world music with electronica, breaks and 4 on 4 beats. This is good.BITM #472 Cocodrills

Originally a group of like-minded friends playing each other their favorite tunes, to hosting some of the worlds biggest DJs, Beirut In the Mix has become a Lebanese institution. BITM has built a solid reputation on its ability to stay one step ahead of the game; from modest 2006 beginnings in random venues scattered around Beirut partially ravaged landscape, the events soon picked up a healthy following and, due to popular demand, the successful monthly parties eventually spurned their own radio show - with now well over 400 episodes under its belt - airing Saturdays 8pm (Beirut time) on Mix FM 104.4 and cementing it's place as the pre-party warm up for Beirut's underground.
9 year deep, Beirut In the Mix continues to deliver on its musical promises, creating consistently exciting parties, podcasts and radio shows for Beirut increasingly prominent underground music scene.
