Select 248: Mixed by 3lias

3lais is a pioneering Beirut-based electronic music producer and DJ, and one part of the eclectic live act Atomic Circus. Born into a household of musicians and artists, 3lais began his musical career at a very young age, quickly becoming one of the trailblazing figures in Lebanon’s underground music scene by the mid-90s. 

A decade into his residency at Beirut’s B018, one of MENA’s hottest clubs, 3lais launched his own collective, A Tribe Called Tribe, along with the Orient Express record shop in Beirut. 3lais is also recognized for his collaborations with a slew of renowned labels and clubs the likes of Fantome De Nuit, Hypnotic Itd, Club der Visionaere, and Sleep is Commerical.  

For our Select 248, 3lais created an electric house set, featuring his silky synths, drenched in deep rolling grooves with a splash of funk and sleazy breaks. The almost eight-hour set, titled ‘Le Fragilite Du Trais’, serves as a celebration of his birthday –a ritual he’s been doing for 18 years now.
