Born in Aleppo, Syria and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, DJ Tweak began his career as a DJ at age 12 on a pair of Technics 1200’s. Over the past 20 years, Tweak has developed himself as a premier touring DJ, remixer and producer. With his energetic style, he has spun at thousands of shows and events in some of the largest elite nightclubs and concerts in the United States, Mexico and Middle East.
Tweak delivers the best experience, blending multiple genres and dropping live mash-ups like you’ve never heard before. Tweak mixes songs on the spot so he can deliver something unique and new for the audience at every event he DJ’s. Tweak premiered his debut EDM single “Partner In Crime” on August 1st, 2021 with many releases currently in the works.
The debut single is a major release for him as an insane amount of hard work went into it to ensure perfection. It is a room/house/electro track that brings in energy to any room at the peak hour of the night. This song was created over the past few months and was inspired by Martin Garrix’s music. The lyrics are catchy and simple, but the build up will have listeners counting down for the drop because they can tell it will be crazy. The track will keep you hooked.
Tweak has a very housy sound. It’s like a mix of Martin Garrix, Hardwell and Nicky Romero. Those are some of his musical influences. He also enjoys listening to and is inspired by David Guetta and Morten. He would most like to collaborate with David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Hardwell, Nicky Romero or Chris Lake in the future.
When making a song, Tweak first creates the music, then writes lyrics that match the music and the theme he’s going for. However, most house music sounds just as good without lyrics, which is amazing because it’s not possible for many other genres. He is currently working on an album and will also release two more singles this summer. He will be doing all the promotions for it himself, as he does for all his other songs.
He uses Apple’s Logic Pro X for production. He knows all the ins and outs of it as he has been using it for 10+ years. He tries to challenge himself to do new and unique things. Watching videos online of his favorite artists showing how they make their tracks helps him a lot. It allows him to learn what plugins they use to create certain effects so that he can replicate and do the same, resulting in having similar, professional sounding music.
His most significant place to perform is at Cancun, MX during spring break. He performed there for many years and has some of the best memories there. He DJed to a packed crowd of diverse people who travelled there from different parts of the world, getting to meet many cool people. Seeing them dance to his music and remixes felt amazing. Another place he loves to DJ is his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Being around friends and familiar faces, people who supported his career from day one, feels very special.
Social Media is the most important tool for any artist in this digital age. It is a way for them to connect and stay in touch with their fans. That is exactly what Tweak uses his social media for, along with utilizing it to update fans on his current projects. He believes that he would not be where he is today if it wasn’t for his fans, so it’s important for him to constantly stay in touch with them no matter where he is in the world.
He loves all of his fans, and admits that he wouldn’t have gotten this far if it wasn’t for their support and constant love. Everything he does, he does to be a better entertainer. He wants to become a better performer for his supporters and show them love and happiness from him.
