For Amsterdammers, Ferro has been around for years. He first emerged at the age of 17 with learned sets that were as influenced by classical music as they were jazz and science fiction. Now, years later, his profile is beginning to rise around Europe having played alongside influential DJs like Zip, Rhadoo and Onur Ozer at clubs like Studio 80 and Paradiso in the Netherlands, as well as at places like Salon Zur Wilden Renate and Club der Visionäre in Berlin.
His sets wave together intricate rhythms, plenty of mood and never fail to work a dancefloor. Unsurprisingly given that he is an Audio Engineer graduate, so too does Ferro produce his own music. So far coming on labels like Moscow Records, Tzinah and Karton, he is fast fomenting his own signature sound. It is a sound that comes caked in a vintage dust, sounding as though his beats have been maturing in a draw before being unleashed on the world.
They are organic, warm and inviting, and it is Ferro’s lasting goal to make all of his music using genuine hardware and fully analogue tools. So too does he hope to collaborate with similarly minded musicians in future, at the same time as forging ahead with his own unique sonic identity.
