Interview: DJ Dray

by | May 19, 2021 | New Artist Interviews, New Rap Music Artists

Artist Name: DJ Dray

Tell us something about you that fans should know:

DJ and electronic music enthusiast. Having spent many years playing at all of the major local night clubs (alongside local hard-hitters and national acts alike), holding multiple residencies, DJing special events and promoting his own shows, Dray has had a lot of time to develop his sound. For me, it’s all about mood and a deep, hypnotic melodic grooves… playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date. Don’t be surprised when you suddenly find yourself dancing.

Where are you from and what’s the music scene like there?

The electronic music scene has existed in Lebanon since at least 1998, when B018 moved to its now famous Karantina venue. It was followed by its competitor Basement in 2005—though the latter shut down in 2011, an homage to it exists in the form of The Basement Reunion room in The Grand Factory. Both B018 and Basement were born in the bottle service era, with venues looking more like restaurants that moonlit as clubs. In 2012, Ali Saleh and his partners decided to take the scene to the next level, just six months after opening their winter concept, Uberhaus, they went from the 300 person venue in the basement of the WH Hotel in Hamra to what is now their summer venue The Gärten by Uberhaus, at Seaside in Downtown, with capacity of 4000.

The new summer venue, Gärten, was one of the first in the country to make its focus the DJ and dance floor.

How have your life experiences influenced your music?

A very active member of my local community, Dray loves playing in nightclubs, beach resorts and special events, my love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Artbat, Tale of Us, Solomun

Song Title: CrossFade Session
