Lebanese in origin, but raised for the first 18 years of his life in Abu Dhabi, Abdalla Chahine (aka Cheh) began his excursion from there. Having been in a city with a wide array of events and a pumping music scene, he was motivated and able to spread his inspirational rhythms to numbers of ears.
Cheh started out with a very simple DJ system. He developed his skills by acquiring mixing on vinyl, and eventually progressed to the use of time-codes and CDs. Publically, his launch was in the scene of private parties, birthdays, dances, and proms.
When it comes to mixing, Cheh’s favorite genres are mainly deep house, tech house, and techno. He targets his vibes on the ecstatic art of creating a groove that moves the crowd, always leaving them with the thrill of wanting more. The styles of sound he selects are greatly influenced by artists such as Carl cox, Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, Nicole Moudaber, Nic Fancuilli, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Magda, Trentemoller, Ricardo Villalobos, Steve Lawler and many others.
Previously residing in Beirut, a city with an original underground music scene, Cheh has advanced to playing in clubs, festivals and events such as Minimal Effort alongside other breakthrough DJs. In 2012, he was released on the Lebanese record label, VL Records.
Back to the Emirates, Cheh continues to progress and preach his music to variations of crowds around the nation. He anticipates the day when he can spread his intense sounds across the world whilst satisfying the appetite for music that his ears crave.
