Rayan - Shimmer

Originally from southern Lebanon, Rayan is an electronic music producer and DJ. Born and raised in Belgium, Rayan had been exposed to music from an early age through the fortune of finding an old drum set and electric guitar in his house. Over the years, his taste progressed through a wide range of genres, from alternative rock to R&B and rap, before finally discovering his passion for techno and house in all their various forms.

His music journey began at the age of 7 by first learning the drums, before moving on to guitar and then piano.

Fast forward to his early 20s, Rayan has been Djing at parties and clubs, while learning the art of electronic music production at the Subbass Music Academy in London during his years in university.

Initially started as a hobby, Rayan decided to pursue his passion and hone his music production craft after receiving lots of positive feedback from friends and peers. His sound is inspired from favourite artists and sounds such as Sasha, Tale of Us, Depeche Mode, and David August.


Like Mercury, the planet, we are split into two. The half of us freezes in endless darkness, while the other half glitters with a perfect shade of orange under the rays of our one and only sun. We thus become the Mercurials. We live through different tones of life, swinging from ice to fire. Mercurial Tones is a music academy that seeks to unearth this cacophony of emotions so as to be able to express them without losing their overwhelming sway.
