Gawdat is a duo that turns venues upside down - a name associated with unrestrained, feelgood vibes and a live performance unmatched on a regional level. The Cairo-based duo are heavily influenced by 90’s R&B culture, classic soul, and jazzy basslines, which form the basis of their signature sound and groove-laden mixing style.
Having infiltrated the scene across the country early on, the duo is considered one of Egypt’s elite imprints, having played nearly every major event within the borders since 2013. The brothers proved to be a unique embodiment of equal parts energy and technical capability. This led them to being called upon for international performances since 2015, a pivotal point in their young careers.
Gawdat have played alongside some of the industry’s heavyweights such as Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, The Martinez Brothers, Luciano, Loco Dice and Bedouin to name a few.
2022 has certainly been a career-affirming year that has seen them perform at esteemed festivals including Caprices, Sunwaves, Enchanted Forest (a five-hour closing set), Überhaus in Egypt, two sold out London shows, as well as sets on lineups with DJ Tennis, Carlita, The Martinez Brothers, Jamie Jones and many more.
On the production front, they are poised to release some new unique music in the coming year as they continue to amplify their profile on a global scale. Off the back of their best year yet, It’s fair to say Gawdat are just getting started…
