Jade Basement


‘If you live in Beirut, you probably know Jade as the DJ from The Basement, or one the most respected DJs in town, or the dude from Blend, the first rock band to be signed in the region (EMI), or that guy at the music store downtown who always recommended great music. Jade plays vinyl in a country where no 12’’ is being sold...’ (Excerpts from TRAX + REMIX magazines) A rocker since high school, he moved to Montreal in 1999 where he experienced his first techno parties and found himself dragged into the world of electronic sounds.

‘If you live in Beirut, you probably know Jade as the DJ from The Basement, or one the most respected DJs in town, or the dude from Blend, the first rock band to be signed in the region (EMI), or that guy at the music store downtown who always recommended great music. Jade plays vinyl in a country where no 12’’ is being sold...’ (Excerpts from TRAX + REMIX magazines) A rocker since high school, he moved to Montreal in 1999 where he experienced his first techno parties and found himself dragged into the world of electronic sounds. In 2002, he returns home to record his first album as a major act with his band Blend (EMI – www.blendband.net). One year later Jade gets into DJ‘ing, and not long after that, he gathers 400 people in unique locations where he throws underground parties (spoon events) He starts distributing his mixes on CD, a habit that he keeps till now in his club, The Basement. Active since June 2005, The Basement gained a huge reputation for its particular style and its crazy atmosphere. For the first time in Beirut, the European Zeitgeist Electro / Minimal & Tech-House sound was offered to a wider audience: Jennifer Cardini, Abe Duque, Chloe, M.A.N.D.Y, D’Julz and many others played there; supported by Jade. The war in 2006 did not stop him… he went organizing fundraisers in town (www.minimalresistance.org) and around the world (www.tobeirut.org) in coordination with The Lebanese Red Cross and with the help and support of P-Toile (Clique Bookings, Berlin), where Famous DJs and live acts like DJ Hell, Craig Richards, MANDY, Stewart Walker, Patrick Chardronnet, Dirt Crew, Kiki, Fafa Monteco, Jef K, Jennifer Cardini, Chloe, Yvan Smagghe, Ewan Pearson and many more supported him…. He started his weekly radio show ‘Sounds from the Basement’ early 2006 on the local radio station Mix fm (every Wednesday 9pm).

Currently, Jade’s getting more requests to play abroad, and keeping his successful weekly residency ‘Electro is Dead’ at The Basement every Friday night. Together with his friend Diamond Setter, they set up their studio in Beirut and are currently producing under the pseudonym Aisha. In parallel he's setting up B+ COLLECTIVE, consisting of a booking agency for local acts, a graphic design section, a sound production studio, a free cultural magazine and soon a digital label bonding Berlin and Beirut, in partnership with P-Toile.
