DJ Plead is a Melbourne/Naarm producer, based in Berlin with a Lebanese background making unique club music. He is known for playing tough, functional, and percussive tracks with references from the rhythms, scales and timbres of Lebanese pop and traditional Lebanese wedding music, blending this with contemporary RnB, Club and other dance styles. As a producer, he has stripped back his sound creating a mix of frenetic yet refined and emotional tracks that are consistently played by the likes of Four Tet, Joy Orbison or Anthony Naples.
For his DECISIONS debut EP, DJ Plead deilvers a unique set of deep dance floor tools with sumptuous percussions drawn from Plead’s Lebanese background, masterfully arranged to propel the listener into deeply mesmeric rhythmic zones with hypnotic vocal and synth loops gleefully entwined throughout the EP, The EP title simultaneously references dancing circles at Lebanese weddings and the anthemic samples of footwork producers such as DJ Roc.
DJ Plead will play the closing Nocturne event at Astin on Saturday night.
