Lebanese born DJ and producer, Gunther is known to be one of the most influential figures in Middle East’s electronic music scene; most notably known for his 7-year residency at Beirut’s infamous club B018, in which he left his mark by introducing Techno and Tech House to the Middle Eastern club life.
After studying in Europe, he came back to Beirut in 2005 and quickly formed the famous Gunther and Stamina duo, which started a revolutionary change in the way Lebanese people perceived and partied to electronic music. In 2006 he held the first underground music radio show “Underground Sessions”, which passed and still passes weekly on Middle East’s number one radio station Mix FM.
Gunther is famous for his global sound, being able to satisfy any crowd through his mood swinging 8 hours long extended sets in which he flawlessly shifts in genres from techno to house to deep to dark to emotional to dry to acid music; anything goes as long as the crowd hears Rock ‘N Roll.
Throughout his career, Gunther has played alongside some of the best DJs the planet has to offer, amongst which are John Digweed, Richie Hawtin, Sasha, Carl Cox, Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela, Lee Burridge, Dany Howells … to name a few, and his career as a producer also bloomed after his releases on Baroque Records, Apollo Records, Replug, Bad Pony and Ready Mix Records under the names of Gunther & Stamina and AudioLab (Powered by Big Al, Gunther, Elias Merheb Stamina)).
Gunther has released two mixed compilations under Gunther & Stamina, B018 Volume 1 and Ready Mix Vol 12, which are characteristic of his global sound.
