Egyptian DJ & Producer, Omar Fayyad is certainly creating a scene for him self in the electronic music World. Omar always wanted to do more than just be a listener, and become more of a contributor. At the age of 16, Omar developed the skills of mixing music and the skills of developing great tracklists, particularly influenced by the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed and Sasha, who taught him the essence of leading a crowd from the booth.
At the beginning, Omar started spinning progressive house, but it wasn’t long until he realized he was more into the deep side of electronic music. So as result, he distinguished himself by moving between deep house, deep tech, and melodic techno.
Omar also mixes minimal, down-tempo and ambient music.
However, it didn’t stop there. Omar wanted to take it to another level, and produce his own music. It took him nearly a year of very hard work to master his production skills, influenced by big producers such as , Henry Saiz, Robert Babicz, Max Cooper, Guy J and many others. Omar has signed his first EP entitled “Distance is a Killer” with Underground Noise Records in 2010, which is a start of a bright future for Omar in the music career.
“Djing is not just putting a tracklist together and mixing them..you take the audience on a journey through your set. It’s up to you as a DJ to make it a pleasant trip or a bad one…As for production, the perfect track for me is one that is deep, melancholic, associated with melodies and good percs..some ambiance here and there would spice it up.”
