From the earth, into the soul… this is the mantra of Iraqi born, Australian based DJ & Producer, Balad.

Drawing influence from his roots, Balad brings his style of Ambient Electronica to the forefront, driven by mysterious and rhythmic bass lines and subtle melodies and percussions with influences from the world.

With his debut remix, these elements came together over the haunting vocals of Jasmine Thompson, on her track, “Adore”. Amassing over 28k plays in the first month, this was a taste of what was to come.

The release of his debut original, “Lost City” on Aftertech Records saw the artist rise up the Top 100 of the Electronica/Downtempo chart, with the track peaking at spot #34 for more than 2 weeks.

2017 also saw Balad sign for release 4 more original productions on Progressive labels Lost Diaries, Aftertech Records & Parquet Recordings. At the same time, Balad continues to make waves in the club scene, supporting international superstars including Anjunadeep artist, Lane 8 on his This Never Happened Tour.
