Driven by a burning desire to see others succeed, G-Mohris’ own success has been achieved against all odds through the lens of Lebanese civil strife and a war-torn Beirut that saw the path from child to man traveled all too rapidly. Shunning more traditional childhood gifts and pastimes in favor of an early Casio synthesizer, a passion for electronic music was thus borne from endless hours of youthful experimentation and sacrifice. Such enthusiasm ultimately led to a desire for greater immersion in a sound that was synonymous with Beirut’s underground scene.
