Decoded Residents Radio with March Mix of the Month Winner – Karim Yousry

Karim Yousry is one of Egypt’s youngest DJ’s to breakthrough the scene and perform alongside international artists. His career started in 2003 after he was inspired by various underground artists. From observing to learning, he managed to weave a style of his own. In 2004, Karim started recording bedroom mixes and radio shows, and by 2005 to 2010 he had sought the underground scene and played alongside many of the rising artists at the time as well as many local and international headliners.

Karim continued to pursue his career from starting his own online radio show “Embassy of Sound” to dominating the decks of private beach clubs in Summer’14/’15. The veteran proved his skills when he took over the decks at one of the biggest clubs in Egypt, he came to the light playing a passionate closing set after Toolroom Records owner Mark Knight at Space Sharm El Sheikh in Easter 2015.

In 2016 his ultimate online series “Enlightenment & Not for Softies” fan’s are growing fast introducing house/techno with a different dynamic. Karim uses music to tell stories, with a distinct deepness to his sound.

Karim has also warmed up for Ramiro Lopez then ended the year in Pacha Sharm El Sheikh with one of most transcendent sets. Nowadays he’s achieving significant success with his deep melodic techno music which allows him to express himself and connects him to the crowd.

His winning mix submission does just that. Perfectly demonstrating how a warm up set should flow, progress and create a journey. It’s minimal and deep with a melody that slowly builds throughout, lifting the mix with every track. A great selection. Enjoy!
