Farshad Kay – Interview

 Hello Farshad, thank you for the time that you give us to have this interview wich will be a great oportunity for our listeners to know much more about, who Farshad Kay is. We know that you are born in Iran and because of that we would like totell us a little bit about how you discover electronic music in Iran?

I moved from Iran when I was 12 years old. In that time there was no electronic music, the only music you would hear was Iranian music with sitars and tablas. After I moved to the Netherlands I start to listen to electronic music and artist like artists like TheProdigy, Moby, Quazar and Masters At Work to name a few.  I really loved the energy in this style of music, which was uplifting and hypnotizing at the same time.

2.     When did you realize that you want to make music and starting to make your name known in this industry?

It was during a school party where I saw a dj playing for the firsttime. I was hooked by the way he was making the crowd dance andshout. I remember that I stood in the dj booth all night longwatching the guy playing music, scratching and MC-ing while the kids where jumping up and down and screaming for more. I knew from that moment that this was my future path. Making people dance!

3.  What can you say about the actual electronic music? Where do you think that this industry will lead to?

I think electronic music has never been that popular as now. You can hear it on any radio station and look at the numerous of electronic festivals which are getting more organized every year. Besides you can see that after the EDM blew up, there was a need for a subculture. And techno is the perfect opposite answer to EDM. In my opinion techno will become more mainstream accepted. 

4. You are now based in Holland and we would like to know what made you take that call to move there?

As a young boy I was dreaming to become dentist. Like now there is a lot of oppression internally and internationally, not the best place to grow up and have big dreams.  I was blessed that my aunt was living in the Netherlands and gave me the opportunity to come and live with her and fulfill my dream to become a dentist. Moving to Amsterdam gave me so much more dreams that I ended up playing and making music.

5.  Can you please tell us what skills does a dj need to have to be a successfully dj?

You need to have a very good selection of music and a good timing for beat matching. Having knowledge of effects on the mixer en how to use it during your set is very important. It’s not only about mixing two records together, it’s about telling story with your music and taking the crowd into a journey. 

6. Do you think that technology has some influences over the dj’s?

Yes,it certainly has a big influence. We have seen how we switched from vinyl to CD and now to MP3. When I started, you only had tone control for the high, mid and low frequencies on your mixer. Nowadays a mixer is full of effects, which you can use to make your set even more exciting and create new things with the songs you mix. If you look at it like this, you can’t admit the importance of technological development for us.

 7. You know that many people want to be dj now, what can you tell them when it comes to be a good dj?

In my opinion, as a DJ you are there to satisfy the audience and connect with them. Take them on a musical journey, but most of all, make suret hat your are having FUN! Make sure that you are well prepared when you go out to play. Know your tracks inside out, create playlists and make sure you know which tracks fit together well.  Try to surprise the audience by that gem which rocks the place,but no one has! This means crate digging and finding your own unique style and create your own identity as a DJ.

8. How do you feel to have your radio show broadcasted at IFM Radio Romania?

I’m honored that you guys gave me this opportunity, where I can present my view of techno on your station. I’m looking forward to my first show in February and hope that the listeners will enjoy it too. 

9. Any future plans?

In the beginning of 2019 I will have two releases out on Shibiza Recordings, which are more melodic driven techno. Of course I will present them in my future shows here with you! Some new collaboration with the Italian dj/producer Torgue will be created. We both have our own unique style. Imagine deep dark driven beats combined with warm melodic melodies. 

Besides I’m organizing some events in Amsterdam. Of course around ADE my yearly event Aquatone will return and my new concept Mayhem will see the day of light in summer 2019 on some various location in and around Amsterdam. 

Thank you Farshad and we look forward to listen your first episode of your radio show Aquatone here at IFM Radio from february 2019.

Pleasure all mine and looking forward to start in this great aventure with you guys!
