Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of the Universal Rhythms Sessions podcast with yours truly DJ Mentor. This week we bring you a tribal tech house specialist, Saeed Younan. Little introduction is needed for the true House heads, but for those of you who don't know, Saeed has traveled the world performing at some of earths most prominent venues in Ibiza, Portugal, Israel, Tokyo, Greece, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Egypt, Russia, Morroco and the list goes on and on. Nominated as one of America's top 100 DJ's three years in a row by DJ Times Magazine, Best Breakthrough DJ of 2003 at the Dance Star Awards and Best Tech House track in 2010 by Beatport. As a producer he is one of the busiest in the industry with countless releases on his very own label Younan Music as well as numerous releases and remixes for labels such as Stereo, Viva Music, Toolroom Records, Stealth, Starlight Recordings, and many more. I still have a bunch of his earliest releases on vinyl! He is definitely one of my favorite dj/producers and I had the privelege and honor of becoming part of his record label as an artist back in 2007. He is one of the realest and most humble personalities in the industry. He has inspired me to continue making music and for that I have to thank him. So without further to say or do, here is Saeed Younan with a mix he let me pick out from his library of mixes, this one was recently recorded in May 2012 live at Teka in Washington DC as he played alongside Marco Carola. Enjoy! -mentor
