A persistent rhythm underpins Ahadadream’s movements. With unflagging energy and passion, the London-based artist manages various facets of his creative self, predominately as a DJ and producer, but also A&R, label-head, event director, and now as one of the leading tastemakers in the UK club scene. Ahadadream’s music is pure percussive energy, club belters full of skittish drum rolls. With menacing, coiled energy waiting to be unleashed, his unique, drum-focused production draws influence from sounds across the UK, his homeland of Pakistan, the African Diaspora, and beyond. Ahadadream’s club weapons have become set staples for Four Tet, Skrillex, Dixon, Jamie XX, Bonobo, Laurent Garnier, VTSS, and Ben UFO, while his edits have been co-signed by pop royalty such as Rosalía. Noted as“One To Watch” by the Guardian, in review of his most recent EP, Homecoming, they declared,
“Ahad Elleyhad a dream and, judging his thrilling club music, that dream involved Catherine wheels of polyrhythmic, brash beats, huge horns and neon-bright… truly, the stuff of ravey dreams.
