Fed by traditional « Gnawa » and Berber rythms ever since he was born in the suburbs of Agadir, young DJ and producer Gan Gah is now based in Brussels.
This accomplished musician, who has been performing for many years as a beatmaker under various pseudonyms, knows how to shake a dancefloor with his bewitching beats.
Offering a cunning combination of club music and traditional North-African music/rythms/melodies, his first EP “Souktronics” is a declaration of love to his Moroccan roots and to modern electronic music which caused a lot of noise on worldwide dancefloors. His second opus “Chaâbitronics” EP came out in June 2016 on Lowup Records and was followed by a few high profile gigs in the summer & autumn of 2016 including Dour festival, Sfinks Mixed Festival & Amsterdam Dance Event. Let’s fly in ‘17.
