Saiful Idris is a producer, songwriter, musician and designer from Singapore. His dance music productions are a culmination of a love affair which began in the late 1990's on the dance floor of Singapore's renowned superclub, Zouk.
It led him to picking up DJ-ing, with a repertoire spanning the dance music spectrum, from jazz and broken beats to deep soulful house, and from deep, tech-house and tribal house to progressive house and techno. His music is hugely inspired by the sounds he fell in love with back in the early 2000's - from the warm, organic, deep and soulful sounds of Blaze, Osunlade, Masters at Work, Francois K, Ben Watt, Bugz in the Attic, Restless Soul, Tortured Soul, DJ Gregory, Jerome Sydenham, Joe Claussell, Dennis Ferrer and more, to the big room, electronic manoeuvrings of Danny Tenaglia, Steve Lawler, Futureshock, Circulation, Subtech, Pete Heller, Underworld, Sasha, Max Graham, John Digweed, Gareth Emery and of course, Singapore’s very own Aldrin Quek. The goal - to create music that not only moves the body, but the heart and soul.
