I can tell you a lot about Fareoh’s music from my classical standpoint, about his uplifting lyrical lines and stunningly complex yet melodic tracks, but the technicalities are irrelevant once you hear his work. You don’t need to know any music theory to realize that his music is more than just well put together—it’s artistically created and has an optimism that is infectious. Although each track of his is undoubtedly distinct, there is unique sound that makes its creator evident.
I recently had a chance to interview Fareoh a few days after he opened the sold-out Madeon concert at the 9:30 Club. At 20 years old, he’s part of a new generation of DJs and producers moving towards a more progressive house vibe. Polite and well-spoken with an incredibly charismatic stage presence, he’s definitely going to be a major player in the EDM scene. You can read the interview below to learn more about his inspirations, beginnings in classical music, and upcoming projects.
