Over the past few years, up and coming producer Fahjah has been working vigorously to establish himself as an artist. From heavy hitting Electro House to beautiful Melodic Trap Fahjah‘s diverse taste in music, ruthless work ethic, and incredible production skills have helped propel his passion for music to new heights! His catalog of work features a wide array of original tracks and remixes to popular artists such as Coldplay, Ariana Grande, and Kaskade. These works,among others, have helped him to accumulate tens of thousands of plays across all of his tracks! This week, we had the chance to talk with Fahjah and discuss his career in music to this point:
How did you come up with name Fahjah?
It was just a random nickname my brothers gave me to me as a kid. Came from Gold Member of course. My parents, friends, friends’ parents would all call me that to when it came time to come up with a name it only made sense.
Your new remix of Before Their Eyes’ ‘Bulletproof’ has been getting really positive feedback! How was it collaborating again with Mees Van Den Berg and what does this track mean to you?
It was great! He’s an awesome vocalist, never disappoints. This track for me meant trying something new. In the past I’ve been making mostly just progressive house and some trance. This track was the start of a ton of tracks I’m currently working on or have in the bank that are a lot different than what I typically make.
Who are the biggest inspirations on your music?
You have such a diverse style of music across all of your releases; how do you decide what direction you are going for in a certain track?
I never really consciously make the decision. Just whatever feels right. Probably depends on my mood, what I’ve been listening to recently and if I’m doing a remix, I’ll do what I think would be worth having as a different take on the track.
Do you have any new tracks in the works that you can talk about?
I have a whole ton of music in the works or in the bank. One track I’m nearly done that I’m very excited about is a collaboration with an amazing singer from Toronto, Charlotte Command of Command Sisters. I’m trying a new take on the progressive style that I love so much. I think people are going to love it!
What do you feel has been the coolest moment in your career to this point?
What software do you use to produce music?
I use FL Studio 12. My favourite VST would have to be between Omnisphere, Diva, and Nexus. All good for different purposes. Favourite plugin as ridiculous as it may or may not sound, Camelcrusher. I use it a ton. Valhalla room is also a good one.
If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be?
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
The ability to fly, too many places I’d like to go.
Do you have anything you want to say to your fans?
Thank you! I promise you won’t be disappointed with what I’ve been working on!
