Rony Seikaly‘s documentary with CloseUp360 details his journey from Lebanon to Athens to Syracuse University as a young basketball talent, before joining the NBA with the Miami Heat as their first international star. He’s now a well respected DJ and producer, playing at some of the world’s most iconic locations, including Amnesia Ibiza, Space Miami, Burning Man, Art Basel and more. Playing and producing music has always been one of Rony’s first loves, and after basketball he started his journey as a DJ, producer and now label owner (his STRIDE imprint dropped last year). Just like his early days in the NBA, he’s ignored the doubters; shunned the ‘celebrity DJ’ connotations and focused on his craft.
It’s a fascinating watch, and shows how hard he worked to get to where he is now.
