KUTSKI (BBC RADIO 1)
“Faydz is one of the rare DJ’s to come through these days who is also a true DJ’s DJ!! Great knowledge and history in the scene, unique track selection and impeccable turntablist skills mean this guy is the perfect DJ for chin strokers and party animals alike! Add this to his awesome production of the pioneering “rave breaks” sound i’m such a big fan of at the moment, I will be supporting Faydz 100%!!!"
SLIPMATT & BILLY ‘DANIEL’ BUNTER (CAN YOU FEEL IT MEDIA)
“In two years of running ‘Can You Feel It’, Future Rave Anthems 2 is our most exciting release to date. Faydz is an exceptional DJ talent”
MC WHIZZKID (WORLD’S NO.1 HARDCORE MC)
“DJ Faydz is one of the best scratch rave-breaks DJ’s, this country has ever produced. I love listening to his mixes.”
JOEY RIOT (MULTI AWARD WINNING HARDCORE DJ/PRODUCER)
“DJ Faydz is what I call a ‘proper’ DJ, a true technical genius who intertwines classic old school sounds with up to date grooves. This new album shows once again why Faydz is at the top of his game and is a must have to any dance music enthusiast”
Without a doubt, “one of the biggest talents to emerge from the 21st century rave scene”, the award winning DJ, Producer and hit compilation making DJ Faydz is an artist that has worked tirelessly over the last two decades on a finely tuned ear for a crowd pleasing track and a taste for the very best big room rave anthems from all genres of the underground dance music spectrum.
Becoming ever more and more versatile in his choices and style, makes DJ Faydz unique in both his productions and performances, fulfilling his lifelong dream of globally commanding the main stage of some of the rave scene’s mightiest parties based simply on DJ’ing skills alone (including the infamous Hardcore Heaven, Hardcore Till I Die, Raindance, Raverbaby, Uproar, Helter Skelter, Ektos and Slammin Vinyl parties amongst others), something he prides himself on and is proud to say continues to this very day and no less providing for a further established body of work on a number of labels that has fast seen him now become in that time, easily one of the most talented forerunners in his field. This is a bold statement, but securely backed by the fact that his sets performing live every year in Spain at Hardcore Till I Die’s outstanding HTID In The Sun event or perhaps his opening set at Slammin Vinyl’s 5000 capacity packed Westfest Main Arena, sharing a stage with the likes of Darren Styles, Andy C and Pendulum; would attest to the fact that it’s a warranted description and one that many a raver in the UK and beyond would back a thousand times over, time and time again.
His recent compilation release Future Rave Anthems Volume 2 was a smash hit, winning ‘Best Album’ at the 2010 Nu Rave Awards ceremony in London and received massive acclaim from industry pundits the World over. Achieving another major life goal with it’s release (to mix and compile his own two CD download set), the album was signed and commissioned by scene legends Billy Daniel Bunter & Slipmatt as part of their Can You Feel It Media record label project. The album, a mash up of multitude of genres, seamlessly blended into two smooth hour long mixes and recorded live on his CDJ 1000 Mk iii’s; went on to smash every respective industry chart including Juno, Track It Down and iTunes. The album further led to opportunities to work on various projects with the Can You Feel It Media team, which include locking down scratch infused promo mixes for leading urban artists (including Riko Dan of Roll Deep fame) now signed to Slipmatt & Bunter’s all new Slaughter House Rydims label project.
Faydz also receives regular support from the underground rave scene’s radio ambassador Kutski on his BBC Radio One shows, fully backing his new productions and was so impressed with his recent ‘Back To The Future’ 10 minute mix (containing a massive 60 tracks in just ten minutes), that he asked him to make it exclusive to his show on Radio One, which undoubtedly went down a storm. He has also appeared as a special guest on Slipmatt’s hugely popular ‘Can You Feel It’ show on Ministry Of Sound Radio. Further showing his unending flexibility, Faydz continues to entertain main stages around the globe en mass, with bookings seeing him play mash ups of varied styles and aspects of dance music including rave breaks, old skool, house, drum & bass and hip-hop – in some cases playing a broad spectrum and in others being booked to perform just one genre.
Always at the forefront of new sounds, always listening out for that something different, that something extra, Faydz combines this beautifully with focussed and almost precognitive crowd reading skills, plenty of energy, bags of experience, a tune selection like no other artist before him and an undeniably brilliant scratch technique. Without question a DJ’s DJ and one that many have quoted as undeniably brilliant, if you’re in the market for a DJ with experience, wow factor and an unmatched technical ability, then by one hell of a margin Faydz is your man.
