Cyrill Reaidy

Cyrill Reaidy’s musical journey began with a passion for collecting music in various formats, spending endless hours exploring and discovering new sounds. As a teenager, he picked up the electric guitar, where he found joy in experimenting with different tones and effects. Reaidy's fascination with electronic music was sparked by its versatility, allowing him to harness the power of multiple instruments simultaneously. Upon relocating to Dubai in 2014, Reaidy set out to develop his skills in DJing and exploring the realm of electronic music production while delving into diverse genres which reflects his commitment to finding his signature sound in the ever-evolving landscape of electronic music.

His contributions to the music scene in the UAE allowed him to capture dancefloors and solidified his reputation as a skilled and versatile DJ. Since 2018, he has served as a resident DJ at Boogie Box, a renowned platform for house and techno music that is a staple of the local nightlife scene. In 2022, Reaidy co-founded Moist Paper Party, an innovative and alternative DIY anti-party that challenges the conventional norms of partying the UAE. This underground event series has garnered a dedicated following for its commitment to pushing boundaries and fostering a sense of community among like-minded people. Continuing his mission to evolve the new wave of local electronic music events, Reaidy founded Riddim Section in 2023, a club night dedicated to showcasing cutting-edge sounds of dub, jungle and drum and bass. In the same year, Reaidy also launched Sawt Systems, a company specializing in audiovisual and production services. Through Sawt Systems, Reaidy has played a key role in making many underground events happen, further cementing his roots in the local music industry. Cyrill actively engages with the music community by involving others in the process and learning from their experiences, fostering a sense of collaboration and camaraderie within the music scene.

Cyrill Reaidy will be making his live music performance debut, marking a significant milestone in his musical journey. His performance will be entirely hardware-based, using multiple instruments and machines that he will play live. The direction for this particular project at MUTEK AE will be moody, dubby, slow, and heavy, characterized by distorted textures, broken beats, and atmospheric soundscapes.

His musical style can be described as a fusion of eclectic influences. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of genres, including hip-hop, post-rock, dub, metal, jungle, techno, and bass, Reaidy's sound defies categorization, seamlessly weaving together diverse sonic elements. His craft often explores the interplay between light and shadow, blending moments of beauty and serenity with elements of tension and dissonance.
