Atish – Info Session


The Atish experience: deep, emotive, ecstatic. It is more than the beautiful sounds emanating from the speakers, though, it is also the man behind the decks: warm, compassionate, inviting. In an age of oversized DJ egos there is still an artist who is
devoted to connecting with his audience, a humble soul with a pure passion for music. This is Atish.
Atish occupies a rare space in dance music. At a time when most DJs rise to prominence primarily through their work as producers, Atish’s success has been realized through his total devotion to the art of DJing. What began at a small gig back in 2010 in San Francisco has since flowered into a magical journey around the world at clubs, festivals, and afterhours on six of the seven continents.

With his second visit to Bahrain, Atish came to Malja for an intimate Q&A session. Hosted by Soundscapes’ own Nezar Kadhem, the info session explored Atish’s background in music, his previous visit to Bahrain, and his relationship with Soundscapes before answering more detailed questions about his life and career.

The info session with Atish was held on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at the Malja Bahrain Gallery Space.
