Raised up in Stockholm, Kais Ammar has never regarded himself solely as a consumer of the underground scene, but has always had the goal to contribute to the citys growing culture.
His musical journey started by obsessively cataloging genres, helping him to nourish his love for music, eventually leading him to discover exceptional Chicago and Detroit producers. Having gathered a collection of music he had no record players at the time, so he quickly learnt solely by playing smaller bars and friends parties around in Stockholm.
Working at the bar at Stockholms most famous dance music venue Berns, he made the shifts bearable by sneaking down to the basement, 2.35:1, captivated by the music that was being played through the Funktion One-soundsystem.
Later, he made the shift to curating thursdays at 2.35:1 together with his House & Techno-collective .org, making it to one of the more popular nights of the week. He has booked and played alongside mighty acts such as Answer Code Request, Blind Observatory, Kyle Hall and Sigha to name a few.
In his dj sets he tries to find the perfect merge of appealing to the crowd and his colleges at the same time.
