Wake Island is an electronic producer duo originally from Beirut and now based in Montreal. Through their various projects, they attempt to reconcile their Arab roots with their North American lives, infusing Middle-Eastern sounds with contemporary, boundary pushing dance music. Their DJ sets offer a fresh perspective on Arabic music, blending some of the most innovative electronic tracks with more traditional popular songs and old/rare cuts. In 2018, they co-founded Laylit, a NYC-based monthly party that celebrates the diversity of music and artists from the Arab/SWANA region and its diasporas. Laylit is now touring many cities in the US and Canada.
