WanderTunes: DJ Alsultany
For our second edition of WanderTunes, we present a mix from DJ Fabian Alsultany who has been a Wanderlust artist since 2010. We are lucky to host him the entire summer this year, as he DJs all four festivals! We hope that this new mix of yoga and dance friendly beats will keep everyone grooving until we see each other in Vermont to kick off an amazing summer of sound and movement.
Fabian and his crew have given us permission to add an exclusive debut on his remix of the legendary Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - "Fault Lines" (track 5) on his WanderTunes mix - for Real World Records.
Star Rise: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Michael Brook Remixed
From Fabian on his playlist created for our community - "This WanderTunes mix is a snap shot my musical aesthetic, one foot immersed in electronica, dance music and alternative rock, and another foot steeped in the sounds of the Middle East, Africa, South America - or what you would likely find in the world music section. My primary role as DJ in a dance environment is creating a immersive celebratory dance experience; and on this summer adventure through the Wanderlust universe, I will be finding myself DJing for a lot of yoga classes in addition to the ecstatic dance settings. I anticipate anyone hearing the WanderTunes mix will be listening from the computer. It's an appetizer for what is to come from me at the Wanderlust Festivals."

~ Los Angeles-based DJ Fabian Alsultany was initiated into the DJ world as a teenage New York City club kid in the late ’80s. For over 20 years DJ Alsultany has performed his tribalistic musical alchemy at major festivals, world class nightclubs and venues, conferences and yoga/retreat centers across Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa, India, the Caribbean, and North and South America. Creating the city’s hottest international music DJ collective, Globesonic Sound System, in 2000, Alsultany performs with an uncanny sense for musical wizardry and an irrepressible ambition to infuse the national music scene with eclectic, worldly beats and universal rhythms, causing Billboard Magazine to dub him the “World Music Impresario.”
Alsultany has shared the stage with world-renowned artists, such as Thievery Corporation, Bassnectar, Michael Franti, Brazilian Girls, Macy Gray, Jamiroquai and more. His broad aesthetic transitions smoothly between smoke-filled dance clubs, shamanic retreats and massive outdoor music festivals.
In the summer of 2013, Alsultany will be releasing a new reggae-inspired dance single entitled 'The Stars, They're Aligning' featuring Bay Area vocalist Rocker T, as well as a collection of well crafted original songs mixing electronica, reggae grooves and alternative rock under the name Imperial Highness with Los Angeles vocalist Rafe Pearlman. In late July, a DJ Alsultany remix by legendary Pakistani singer, the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, will be released on Peter Gabriel's record company "Real World". He will be DJing festivals throughout the US, including all four Wanderlust Festivals.
