MUSIC LINE UP
Italian DJ has found himself re-energised once again, back in love with electronic music
Francesco Farfa has got his groove back. In recent times, the Italian DJ has found himself re-energised once again, back in love with electronic music and right back at the sharp end of the underground scene. A true digger and sound obsessive, Farfa comes armed with decades of experience and musical appreciation, but now with a fresh perspective that means he is once again doing what he does best: turning musical emotions and compelling rhythms into dance floor art.
The Florence born DJ first started playing as far back as the 90s, laying down vital sets of funk, disco and proto-house sounds. His deck skills and rare knack for selection and sequencing meant he soon became one of Italy's most famous DJ exports, with his unique skills earning him sets at some of the most prestigious night venues and festivals, such as Space (Ibiza), Amnesia (Ibiza), E-Werk (Berlin), Vinyl (New York), Sonar (Barcelona), Love Parade (Berlin), Monegros (Fraga), Street Parade (Zurich) and many more.
From a production perspective, Farfa has released on the likes of Momento, Souvenir and Serial Killer, always evolving with each new 12. Timeless sounds that always leave an impression, Farfa's records have earned a renaissance of late thanks to the support of numerous high-profile players from the scene.
Farfa's music has been called everything from psychedelic techno to cyber-trance, but it is impossible to truly define, with Farfa instead going in whatever direction his heart takes him. Hugely respected in his native country, Farfa has influenced a whole host of Italian DJs, with none other than Francesco Del Garda among those who continue to cite him as a major influence. Now, it is Del Garda who is inspiring Farfa, and in fact the pair have plans for a special back-to-back series that will see them join forces in the not-too-distant future. After a period of reflection and finding new inspirations, Francesco Farfa is back where he belongs: deep in the underground, playing challenging and unpredictable sets of slick and sleek house, techno and minimal.
