Faysal Bibi aka OkyDoky is a producer and performer of live electronic music. Known for catchy beats, eccentric sampling, and energetic performances, OkyDoky‘s music consists of live instrumentation, sampling, effects modulation, and vocoding using laptops, synthesizers, midi-controllers, and other audiogenetic toys. Mainly breaks-based, his style includes influences from 80s electro to drum ‘n bass and metal.
Hailing from a background in classical violin and rock and metal guitar, OkyDoky has been producing and performing electronic music since 2008. In 2009 he joined forces with fellow electronaut RadioKVM (Sary Moussa) to bring a new level of sonic mayhem upon the Lebanese music scene. OkyDoky & RadioKVM’s live shows have become known for their intensity, including VJ projections and appearances by local MCs. In 2010 the duo released Tasjeelat Mutafarriqa, an EP of individual and collaborative compositions recorded from their live shows.
OkyDoky has also composed and performed live music scores for theater productions that played in Liverpool (2009 Brouhaha Festival, Liverpool) and Brooklyn (2010 Arts in Bushwick BETA Spaces). He is also continually involved in collaborative and remix projects with groups and musicians from the US, France, and the Arab World.
