Opposite DireKtion

DJ-duo Opposite DireKtion is on a mission to become the messengers of Deep Instrumental House with groovy baselines. Spending the past five years developing their signature sound, Lebanon-born Roland and Elie are often found in their studio in the heart of Montreal, Canada.

As they both have unique personalities, different schools of thought, and musical backgrounds, they have managed to create a dynamic melodic sound layered with elements of Deep, Minimal/Deep Tech, and Progressive styles. Starting out with private events, Opposite DireKtion went from becoming residents at Clandestino and Nhau bar in Montreal to playing at events such as AIM Festival, Animal nightclub in Tulum, and Front Republic Festival.

The duo has recently uploaded the set recording of what they say was one of the best gigs they had last year. Dancing for the harvest moon, the crowd and the vibe at Rituals Second Harvest by Masfina was magical and you can all relive the journey by listening to this live set on Soundcloud now. Enjoy!

Heavily inspired by nature and diverse cultures, his music can be characterized by keywords such as compelling, deep, and melodious. Developing his sound further, he released a full album titled ‘Unalome’ last year. It’s no wonder at all that Joep is often asked to provide musical guidance for group breathwork and meditation sessions. This is in addition to the many festivals and club venues he now plays around the world.

Jumpstarting his DJ career with gigs in his native country for Into the Woods, The Gardens of Babylon, and Pleinvrees, he has charmed international audiences at events including Bonjuk Bay Turkey, Moga Festival in Morocco, and Akasha in Ibiza.

Every summer he can be found behind the decks of popular clubs in Ibiza. This includes hotspots such as Sunset Ashram and Las Dalias, while also holding down various residencies in his hometown Berlin. Besides his love for creating and playing music, Shahrokh is also known for organizing and running events and clubs.
