Born in 1984, in Amman Jordan, with the first childhood memory being the keys of the piano in front of me, and my tutor’s hand waking me up just 10 minutes into my 60 min piano lesson. To be fair I was only 4 years old. What was my mother thinking?! Her next great idea was for me to try the violin. Surprisingly this one lasted 12 years! With a lot of pressure and support from my family and friends, I left the National Music Conservatory at the age of 16 with an 8th grade professional degree from the Associated Board of Music in London, in music theory, violin and trombone.
Enough with the boring details and more on ELECTRONIC MUSIC!!!!
Having a decent background in Music, it was easy getting the hang of all the gizmos and gadgets English DJs were playing with, as I stood there gazing at them making 10, 20 and 50 thousand people go mad, cheering and dancing at events lasting up to 36 hours straight. Living in the UK (for uni) played a big part in making this hobby a reality!! I got my first rack in 2002 (vinyl players and mixer) and kissed my studying days good bye! No I didn’t quit Uni, I just barely made it! But hey, who gives a shit. I have a Masters degree in Events Management from the best school in England.
“oh and by the way... f*ck genres :) ill make what i like, n i like alot of stuff.” Deadmau5. And this is how I feel about my music, the music I play, and am currently producing (oooh yes, I will surprise you very soon). It’s more of a collection of good stuff from all over put together! Some call it “Tech House”, some call it “Progressive”. Playing 2 events with Susana (Armin’s Vocalist), Emma Hewitt, and having my name on 2 Distant Heat posters (which was a dream come true), among many other gigs here and there, proved to me that people love what I’m doing, and I will continue doing it with passion.
It wont help blabbing more about my style of music, so please take the time to download my sets, watch any videos posted here, and follow me for all my up-coming gigs! (twitter: @nugbi)
There’s nothing sweeter than an average Jordanian music fanatic making it big in the real world. This is my aim! My target. Making it big why? Money? Yes, but more for the rush, the adrenalin clogging your senses for 2, 4 even 8 hours straight, by a mad crowd of thousands screaming with their hands in the air. Some see it as a moment of pride and glory. I think those two words are not enough to describe it.
