Tamer Malki and Rami Abousabe are the enigmatic masterminds behind Bedouin, the multidisciplinary DJ and producer duo connecting crowds from all corners of the world through their shared sonic vision. Having spent the better part of a decade refining their auditory expression, Abousabe and Malki have masterfully blended their diverse influences to inform their distinctive, genre-transcending sound that has graced the stages of Coachella, Tomorrowland, Burning Man, III Points, CRSSD and Art Basel as well as iconic venues like Ushuaïa, Wynn Las Vegas, Hï Ibiza, Brooklyn Mirage, Club Space Miami, Papaya Playa Tulum, Pacha Ibiza (home to Bedouin SAGA) and Scorpios where they currently have a residency. By weaving their Middle Eastern heritage, Western upbringing and cultural explorations into each of their sophisticated compositions, the duo unfold their story sonically to bring listeners on a deeply personal journey into the movement that is Bedouin.
To date, the musicians, singers, lyricists and multi-instrumentalists have been featured on labels such as Get Physical, All Day I Dream, Circoloco, Cityfox and their own imprint - Human By Default. Select major label releases include remixes for Black Coffee, Virgil Abloh and Damian Lazarus on Ultra, Sony/Universal and Crosstown Rebels. Their timeless and original productions have cemented Bedouin as a now-ubiquitous name in the electronic music scene, and they have amassed ongoing support from the industry as evident in their induction into The Recording Academy’s 2023 New Membership Class, two features on BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and MixMag Mixes, who named the duo “Breakthrough Artists” in 2017.
That same year, Abousabe and Malki debuted SAGA, their award-winning weekly Ibiza residency and immersive event concept series that quickly established its reputation as an ethereal cornerstone of the fabled White Isle. The duo play every Wednesday night from May through October, and personally curate the entire season from lineup to production, and beyond. From late nights filled playing their own idiosyncratic spell of sounds, to a myriad of conceptual performances and mesmerizing theatrical encounters, SAGA opens the portal to a mystical dimension born from the duo’s musical perspective. Awarded the prestigious DJ Awards title for “‘Best Night on Ibiza” in 2019, SAGA remains one of the island’s best attended parties, hosted now at the iconic Pacha Ibiza.
2020 saw the launch of their record label Human By Default alongside the debut of their Whistleman EP and a slew of original releases. In 2022, Bedouin performed an exclusive, hybrid-live set with Cercle filmed at the legendary Al-Khazneh (the Treasury) in Petra, Jordan (Malki’s home country).
Signaling yet another evolution of Bedouin’s artistic development, May 2023 marked the release of their long-awaited debut album, Temple of Dreams. Over the course of seven years, the duo spent a great deal of time finalizing existing material as well as composing, writing, singing and collaborating with diverse talent on new originals to create a transcendent listening experience showcasing their undeniable sound. Temple of Dreams is the culmination of these sessions, capturing the emblematic sound of the avant-garde group. Now, they are following up on this apex with a multi-part remix package on their imprint that includes a prolific roster of electronic music talent such as Damian Lazarus, Vintage Culture, Made By Pete, Robin M, LP Giobbi, Catz N Dogz, Harry Romero and more.
