DJ Plead is a Melbourne/Naarm producer, based in Berlin and making percussive club music. Drawing on his Lebanese background, DJ Plead makes tough, functional, and percussive tracks. His unique style references the rhythms, scales and timbres of Lebanese pop and traditional Lebanese wedding music, blending them with contemporary RnB, Club and other dance styles. DJ Plead released his debut EP ‘Get in Circle’ through air max 97’s DECISIONS label in March 2018 and has since toured Europe and China. DJ Plead is also half of drum-workout duo Poison, a member of high-energy trio BV, and founder of the SUMAC label. His music is consistently played by the likes of Four Tet, Madame X, Anthony Naples, Joy O, Batu and many more. 

With his latest 12″ for Nervous Horizon, DJ Plead has created stark, skeletal, snare heavy drum tracks to frame his signature palette of Lebanese futes, Mijwizz, vocal samples and subtle pads. Pleats Plead takes DJ Plead’s distinctive sound and pushes it in a UK centric, minimal, dance-foor oriented direction. Under the guidance of label heads TSVI and Tommy Wallwork, DJ Plead has stripped back his sound to create an EP of frenetic yet refned and emotive tracks..
