Ibiza resident Sadeedo’s love for music dates back to an early obsession crafting Mixtapes from his sister’s old record collection, containing anything from De La Soul to the theme tune of Twin Peaks. He’s London born and raised, with roots from Jordan, Lebanon and Bosnia, and these influences can be heard in his eclectic sets, with sounds that are sunny, soulful, funky, uplifting, bouncy, hypnotic and tropical, often with a Middle Eastern twang.
2019 was fruitful for Sadeedo. Building on residencies at Experimental Beach and Jockey Club, he made his debut at the iconic Pikes Hotel, warming up for Faithless at the first ‘Back to Mine’ records party. More recently, he's been invited to do guest mixes on Ibiza Sonica Radio and Le Mellotron (Paris), while he now has his own monthly radio show on the island on OpenLab Radio. During the winter months, he travels between Ibiza, London (Sketch, Experimental) and Paris (Andy Wahloo, Prescription) to share his eclectic sound.
The collaborative projects he’s involved in have also seen a substantial growth this year. ’Dubtropical’ now features a very talented group of local musicians, ‘The Dubtropical Allstars’ who, inspired by sounds thrown at them by the DJs, improvise to create live Dub sessions. The band backed reggae legend Johnny Osbourne at Las Dalias in one of the most memorable concerts of the summer, while more recently, they headlined at Sofar Sounds Ibiza.
Sadeedo also co-founded another this season, ‘Quantum Disco’, where cosmic disco, rare groove and weird worldish wonders are spun in an uplifting, good times party. Quantum Disco has built a strong following, with successful appearances in several venues, including Malanga and more recently Las Dalias.
