Ahadadream’s music is pure percussive energy, club belters full of skittish drum rolls. With menacing, coiled energy waiting to be unleashed, his unique, drum-focused production draws influence from sounds across the UK, his homeland of Pakistan, the African Diaspora and beyond. Ahadadream’s club weapons have become set staples for Peggy Gou, Fred again.. Four Tet, Skrillex, Dixon, Jamie XX, Bonobo, Laurent Garnier, VTSS and Ben UFO, while his edits have been co-signed by pop royalty such as Rosalía. Noted as “One To Watch” by the Guardian,his recent BBC Radio 1 Essential mix, Mixmag Lab and NTS residency are good jumping off points for those looking to unfurl his varied, but distinctly unified sound.

Alongside performing at the world’s best festivals and clubs this year – Glastonbury, Sonar, Printworks, Circoloco at DC10, Fabric, Panorama Bar, Notting Hill Carnival, CTM, Crssd and more – in October, he sold out a hometown show at London’s Village Underground.

When Ahadadream’s Boiler Room dropped in October, the platform declared it “one of the rowdiest of the year”. The stream features special guest appearances from Skrillex and ELIZA, two artists Elley has been working with over the summer. Keep an eye out for a very special Ahadadream release featuring Skrillex and Priya Ragu, coming in early 2024, which has already been supported by Peggy Gou, Fred again… and Four Tet.
