As a DJ, Saeed’s performances are renowned for his technical abilities and precision. He effortlessly weaves and morphs tracks together into a seamless blend of house and techno. Enhancing his music into a warm and sexy vibe, while building momentum by allowing the music to ebb and swell. Always a guaranteed good time watching and listening to Saeed work a room and build a vibe. As DJ MAG puts it "Saeed Younan is one of the few DJ's that really know how to serve it up well". No surprise why Carl Cox chose Saeed as his goto DJ to open for all his US tour dates, including his Las Vegas residency (2014 & 2015). Carl Cox also invited him to play his arena in numerous festivals, including EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Miami, Electric Forest, Escapade Canada, Digital Dreams Canada, and the legendary closing of SPACE Ibiza final chapter (September 2016).

In testimony to his worldwide appeal, Saeed was nominated one of America’s Top 100 DJ’s, entering America’s Best Top 50 DJ Poll six years in a row (DJ Times Magazine U.S.A). Beatport nominate Saeed Younan for best tech-house track (Beatport award). He was also nominated for Best Breakthrough DJ at the 2003 Dance Star Awards. These milestone events gave him the global recognition and provided the opportunity to push his sound further and captivating audiences worldwide. Saeed has headlined at prominent clubs across the globe in exotic locations such as Ibiza, Egypt, Bulgaria, Dubai, Miami, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Madrid, Russia with the list going on and on.

As a producer, Saeed is currently entering the busiest period of his career. Not only is he playing at different destinations on a weekly basis, but he also stepped up his production and remix work. He's had numerous top 10 singles on Beatport, traxsource, and other reputable digital download services; released six mixed albums; and worked with some of the biggest dance labels in the industry.

Born in Iraq but living in Washington DC since the early 80's, Younan grew up listening to a variety of ethnic music. As a result, his musical sound resonates with percolating beats and sonic grooves. His production have been dubbed “timeless” by top DJs and even referred to as a “change of heart for dance music.” His vision is clear, yet simply stated: “I just want people to enjoy my music as much as I enjoy playing it for them.”

Saeed Younan is certainly a busy man with many jobs, but armed with his fierce work ethic and an unlimited passion for music, he welcomes each new challenge. "It's a lot of juggling," he admits, “but I'm used to it, I've done it all my life. I'm excited about the future, about my label and my production work. I wake up every morning and ask, what is going to keep me going? What can I do that nobody else has done yet? What's next?”
