Adelaide-based duo Lizzie Bradley and Mehdi El-Aquil deliver an innovative experience of dubbed-out beats laced with free-floating vocals. The pair bring together their diverse histories, of singing at the iconic Glastonbury festival and DJing in the clubs of the summer in Ibiza.
With their considerable and varied experience and their own unique styles, together they have produced a vibrant and compelling performance. The fusion of layered percussive beats, driving bass & melodic string lines under soaring vocals, results in a deep, hypnotic sound.
Originally out of London, Mehdi DJ’s, produces and writes music. He is deeply involved in the local live community and can regularly be found DJing in the bars and clubs of Adelaide and Melbourne.
With a rich history of singing and recording, including jazz, swing, electronic and world music, Lizzie has performed with numerous bands in Australia, UK and Europe. She writes and produces her own music, which she has performed at numerous gigs and festivals.
