Cedric Bardawil has travelled from Hawaii to Japan to Lebanon and back, searching for forgotten records and their stories.

In 2014 he initiated the ongoing Soul Time In Hawaii party, over the years playing alongside DJs including Red Greg, Psychemagik, Patrick Forge, Jamie Tiller and John Gomez.

In his sets he looks for a balance between an obscure and popular sound, selecting records that engage with a crowd. Interested in weaving together listening and dance music, he often plays extended DJ sets where he can bring different tempos and sounds together.

When he’s not playing music, he’s been sharing his knowledge as a guest on radio stations including NTS Live, Red Light Radio and Worldwide FM, as well as writing for publications including The Vinyl Factory. He runs his own label and music platform for the arts, Fourth Sounds, hosting live performances by musicians including Laraaji and Peter Zummo.
