Sarah Nabil, a 24 year old Bahraini artist, is the first female R&B/Hip Hop producer and composer in Bahrain and the region. Upon discovering a passion for music at the early age of 9, Sarah was intrigued by the piano and was eager to learn how it’s played. From that point on, she became self-taught on the piano and started coming up with original compositions. However, that wasn’t quite sufficient for her, and she felt the need to take her music to the next level.
At the age of 17, Sarah discovered the art of music production and knew that that was what she wanted to do. Around that time, she met DJ Outlaw who has since become her mentor.
DJ Outlaw, born Mohammed AlMohri, is a DJ, music producer, sound engineer, and the founding member of Outlaw Productions creative studio. Born and raised in the Kingdom of Bahrain, his musical career started back in 1997 when he began as an independent DJ.

Hussam Aseem (aka “Flipp” or “Flipperachi”) is recognized as being one of the few passionate and devoted Arab rappers in Bahrain and the Middle East as a whole.
By considering the pessimistic mentalities and remarks he constantly received about being an Arab-born rapper from a very young age, Flipp converted this energy into a motivational drive to voice his certain situations, feelings or emotions until he breaks through. With his burst of energy and explosive lyrics which he soon mastered, Flipp started putting Bahrain and the entire region on the musical map.
Having the same passion, energy, goals, and remarkable talent, it was not long until Flipp met the already well-known DJ/Producer DJ Outlaw, and in 2008, Flipp joined Outlaw Productions.
