Ceasar K is far from being a conventional Dj—over the past 12 years he has tackled virtually every single aspect of the dance music business in his own special way, pushing his eclectic Break beat sound to a growing audience in Beirut and around the world.
Ceasar took part 2 years in a row in the “Heineken Found at Thirst” DJ competition and won the title in 2004-this first achievement won him the respect and recognition he was looking for in Lebanon and the Middle east.
As a result, he also took part in the promotion of the Thirst concept in the UAE in 2004 and was a jury member in that same competition in Egypt.
Already owner of the infamous ‘Vibe Lebanon’ entity which includes a DJ agency and an internet radio station, Ceasar K has launched in 2006 his very own record label ‘Vibe Lebanon Records’ in an effort to create a platform for releasing his own music as well as quality electronic music straight out of the Middle east.
The label today has already put out more than 32 releases for acts like Gme & Ceasar K, Kid Bliss, C-Rouge, G! & Special_Kase, Sidihamza, as well as Ceasar K himself, and is quickly gaining recognition all around the world.
Ceasar K’ releases have topped the breakbeat charts of stores like Beatport, Juno and Beatsdigital several times during the past two years which helped in getting his name out on the international scene.
Ceasar has played alongside many international DJs who have visited Beirut through the last few years, namely:
• Deep Dish
• Paul Oakenfold
• Pete Tong
• Daniel Davoli
• Smokin’ Jo
• Judge Jules
• Marco V
• George Acosta
• Hernan Cattaneo
• Chris Lake
• Andy Moor
• Hans Nieswandt
And has laid down his skills either as a turntablist or a club DJ in cities like Munich, Amsterdam, Innsbruck, Vienna, Cairo, Amman and even at the famous Roxy’s in Hollywood…
Over the years Ceasar K has been a resident in clubs like Lila Braun and the Basement to name a few and is has now started a new residency in his own bar ‘Flipside’ where music is strictly played on vinyl records (www.flipsidebeirut.com)
As a radio DJ Ceasar K has evolved from hosting a show on local pirate radio stations to airing his own Internet show “The action pack” on vibe Lebanon, which later on made it to the FM band by being syndicated to Radio One Lebanon for a couple of years.
Today,‘The action pack’ is streaming and podcasting on both Vibe Lebanon (Beirut) and PLAY.FM (Vienna).
The silver Factory:
One of Ceasar K’s recent project was being the driving force behind “The Silver Factory’ concept (Factory by day/Club by night) which consisted in throwing underground events in his own operational Silverware factory in the suburbs of Beirut city!
With 6 successful gigs so far, ‘The silver factory’ has established itself as an alternative venue for hosting the talents of local and international talents…
