As of this year, Wednesdays are Bedouin’s at Pacha. The duo kicked off their SAGA residency back in 2017 at HEART and planned a move to Pacha for 2020. Then that pandemic hit, but the two finally made the much-awaited grand debut at the iconic club this year. It’s been only a season at Pacha but they’ve already managed to christen Saga into a household event.
Celebrated for their Middle Eastern sonic vision and rhythms, Bedouin (i.e. Rami Abousabe and Tamer Malki) have released music on labels like Supernature, Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, and All Day I Dream.
They had their breakout moment rather quickly after playing a sunrise set at the Robot Heart Bus at Burning Man in 2013. Years later, they launched their own imprint Human By Default, debuting with their Whistleman EP.
Their Wednesday Saga residency opened on May 25 and will come to a close on October 5.
Over the past three months, Bedouin have been joined by a robust variety of artists like Black Coffee, Bonobo, Deep Dish, Damian Lazarus, Acid Pauli, Audiofly, Birds Of Mind, Bob Moses, andhim, and more.
This ambitious duo took on two summer residencies this year: in addition to Wednesdays at Pacha, Bedouin have been spending their Tuesdays this summer at Scorpios Mykonos.
Bedouin will be joined by Dj Koze and Ageless for the September 14 edition of Wednesday Saga at Pacha.
Dj Koze (Stefan Kozalla) propelled his production career releasing with the legendary German imprint Kompakt and his debut album Kosi Comes Around made a splash. But his musical days go way back: once part of 1990s band Fischmob, the German artist’s hip-hip roots undeniably have an influence on his ever-growing sonic vision.
His Amygdala EP on his own label Pampa Records featured artists like Matthew Dear, Rhye’s Milosh, Dirk Von Lowtzow, and Apparat — as well as Caribou on vocals.
Besides Pacha, Dj Koze has had multiple appearances at Circoloco at DC10 this month.
As for the Italian Ageless, this will be their third time playing at a Wednesday Saga this season.
Between Bedouin, Dj Koze, and Ageless, September 14 is bound to be yet another hypnotizing experience on the dancefloor.
