Zai was 15 when he first started hitting the clubs with his friends and enjoyed the house music so much that he wanted to discover more about electronic dance music. Zai was intrigued by the tech house sounds coming from Dj’s like Dj Chus, Joris Voorn, Nic Fanculli, Mark Knight and Carl Cox and soon became an inspiration. That’s when he decided to take things up a notch.
After listening to tracks and watching Youtube videos coming from the hands of international well known Dj’s, zai decided to go out and purchase a set of decks. Day by day the dream of him behind the decks wooing the crowd was growing bigger as he was learning.
By the age of 23 Zai was spending long weekends at Sharm El Sheikh where all the top branded clubs were like Space, Pacha and Hardrock. He didn’t just come for the partying, Zai wanted to learn the ropes of how the club industry worked in terms of getting a residency.
Zai was approached by the Manager of Ministry of Sound (Egypt) and once he got to know Zai he was drawn to his talent so Zai was in luck as they gave him the residency at the very popular ‘Ministry of Sound’ at Pacha. His dream of becoming a DJ finally came true.
During his time at Ministry of Sound the name ‘ZAI’ started to become the talk of Sharm El Sheikh which lead to Zai getting booked at Hardrock.
In 2012, Ministry of Sound relocated there party to the most glamorous club in Sharm el sheikh Space! Unfortunately later that year the world’s biggest dance brand left. After witnessing his incredible talent on the decks, Space Sharm gave him the opportunity to shine permanently by handing him over a residency. Until this present day Zai is still at Space rocking the dance floor at flagship night’s ‘Escape’ ‘Ibiza Sessions’ and ‘Terrace Fridays’ supplying his Tech House beats.
Zai was interviewed by mix mag and has stated that he intends on teaming up with producer DDZ and producing his first ever track in the style of tech house.
