Over time, Saqib made his mark all over NYC dance floors, playing for CityFox, Bespoke Musik, ZERO, House of Yes, Output (now closed), Cielo now closed), Knockdown Center, and so many more.

Since his first EP in 2013, Saqib has put out more than 35 official releases consisting of more than 75 originals and remixes, hitting Beatport #1 in the genres of deep house, tech house, organic house, and minimal/ dub techno. These releases go alongside widely supported edits of Pink Floyd, Billie Eilish, David Bowie, The Doors, Dr. Dre, and more. Currently he works for Abracadabra, the label run by Blondish as a producer with an EP that made it to the Beatport Tech House and House top 10 charts as well as doing A+R. He has an upcoming EP with Abracadabra in 2023. He is also involved with Bye Bye Plastic’s DJ’s for climate action initiative.

Since the age of 12, Saqib has been a formal student of music, starting with guitar, bass and drums, playing in heavy metal bands from that age until 2009. Growing up in Pakistan, he picked up eastern classical music and sitar around the same time. With courses at school of audio engineering in NYC, Rutgers University, Point Blank Music Academy London, iO Music academy and DubSpot, Saqib has an extensive knowledge of music theory and music production that is constantly growing.
