***

LayLit is an arab music party started in NYC by - Wake Island - and SAPHE, bringing arabic disco, funk and electronic dance to the Brooklyn dancefloors. The party has been a huge success, and has now expanded to Montreal and will be making its Toronto premiere at this event!

- Wake Island - is an electronic producer duo originally from Beirut and now based between Montreal and New York. Through their music, they attempt to reconcile their Arab roots with their North American lives, infusing Middle-eastern sounds into songs that are inspired by Detroit techno and 80-90s pop/rock.

Wake Island is currently cementing its place in their local Arab and queer scenes. Their upcoming full length offers songs in three languages (English, French and Arabic) that testify to a truly personal perspective on modern life in Western societies. The band forged a personalized approach to their live performances, deep-diving into their core energy to create a celebration of diversity and musically unique experiences to surprise their public each time.
