She is well known in the EDM scene; her strong presence, knack to connect with the crowd and her music that spans across numerous genres has earned her the title of India’s no. 1 favourite Electronica DJ. Navni Kumar talks to Ma Faiza about her music.
Tell us about the kind of music you play
I play a lot of different kinds of music, ranging from Chill out, house, progressive house, techno, electro- trance to psychedelic trance. I start off from somewhere and end somewhere else. I always play my music on the spot. I think you lose soul if you practise DJing – you should do it real time. People change – they’re living beings. Each person has their own mood and feeling and as a group, this evolves through the night. Everything is spontaneous- like magic and sorcery. I play a bit for me, a bit for the people around, something from the environment that inspires me and some things that are divinely inspired. You might call it chance or luck. I just think it’s all alive.
What do you look forward to at every gig?
Every gig has its moments. People come and share something so deep and passionate. Everyone’s hands are in the air. People connect with me and sometimes tell me – we’re not just here for your music, we’re here for you.
What do you want to say to those planning to come see you at BlueFROG?
Be prepared to listen to sounds you can’t help but move to. Prepare to sweat- prepare to go home a little bit hoarse.
