To say music is in his blood is an understatement. Being born into a musical family, it’s no surprise that Anas Attia finds himself behind the decks of some of the hottest clubs in Ontario. Anas, didn’t start from behind the decks though, his musical journey started at a young age when he began dabbling on the keyboard and later on the electric bass. There certainly was no doubting his musical aptitude when he took to the stage in numerous festivals, competitions, and concerts, playing everything from rock to pop and jazz. However, the ambitious Anas wasn’t satisfied with musical instruments alone so at the age of 13 years old Anas decided to on a new role, “the DJ”.
From early 2001 to 2004 Anas worked as a mobile DJ, spinning tracks everywhere from Toronto to the Niagara Peninsula. He moved from private and corporate parties and dances into night clubs. As he grew more and more noticeable in the community, Anas was able to work with and open for greats such as Nathan Barato, Carlo Lio, Joee Cons and Sydney Blu (just to name a few).
With his background as a musician, Anas brings a musical sensibility that many of today’s “computer DJs” simply lack and on the other end of the stick, the student of the game (not only of the music business but also attending the Brock University) has an excellent knowledge of musical technology and uses it to his advantage.
With a “dangerous” collection of tracks from over the years, Anas continues to expand his musical presence and knowledge. With his continual growth, Anas has launched his Dirty House CDs. A compilation of some of the deepest bass lines with the dirtiest sounding tracks, Dirty House One and Dirty House Two were huge successes as fans await the release of Dirty House Three.
Anas continues to DJ around Ontario as his “true character” continues to shine. In March 2006 he pushed the envelope and demonstrated his strength of character by DJing a 24-hour dance event at the University of Toronto without rest. Most recently, Anas was featured in the Canada Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. An overnight charity fundraiser for cancer research.
“I love doing events like Relay and Harmony (harmony.ca). There’s a certain high you get from knowing that you’re not only making the people on the dance floor happy, but that your work will touch thousands of others at the same time”
His musical style “bold” and “risky”, yes melodic and catchy. His performances, like his attitude, are energetic and exciting, and the crowds feed off his electricity. He is not simply a DJ with years of experience and a drive for music, he’s a music enthusiast. When you break down the drive, the desire, the journey… Anas possesses the same element the music does: passion.
