Percussionist, DJ and producer, Shadi Khries is contributor of Acid Arab since 2013. He released in 2017 the album KING GHAZI with Gilb’r on Versatile Records, which they played together for the first time at Festival Nuits Sonores 2017 in Lyon.
In Paris where he is leaving for 5 fives years now, Shadi plays very often in clubs such as La Machine du Moulin rouge, Garage, Communion, Point Ephémère, Petit Bain, Le Badaboum, Le Mellotron and is also a Dj resident of Station ENDLOS, a german crew, founder of Feel Festival and Artlake festival.
Inspired by the atmosphere of jordanian desert Wadi Rum, the desert where he comes from, his DJ set – Arabic Techno Sound – is a hypnotic mix of traditional Middle Eastern music and electronic tones. As a real musician, shadi loves to mix dj sets and perucssions which make his mixes so unique each time he performs.
In October 2016, he has founded the SA7RA-OUI electro party in collaboration with the Bedouins of jordanian desert. And this project is getting bigger as he just came back from the WADI RUM Electro Festival, which is the new name of the SA7RA-OUI that took place end of March.
