New electronic music: Jad Atoui

At the tender age of 18 it is safe to say that Jad Atoui is one of the most interesting young electronic music producers in the Middle East.

Atoui’s tracks combine brooding basslines and ethereal skyscraping synths with a breed of flittering insect-winged beats that Geir Jenssen would be proud of.

If you ever get stuck on that 4am bus back to the center of the universe I can recommend no better soundtrack to keep you company on the way.

You can listen to more of Atoui’s work on soundcloud  or catch him live as part of Beirut’s foremost electronic music collective Acousmatik Soundsystem.
