Artist Interview: Fejká

What do you do when equipment goes on strike?

As long as my laptop is working I’m fine. I had to the issue once that all live equipment went crazy and I couldn’t use it, so I basically had to play the rest of my show on my Macbook Touchpad which was horrible but successful.

What are your musical influences from childhood?

I discovered electronic music with Dubstep and Drum and Bass. Especially the subgenre “Liquid Drum and Bass” introduced me to atmospheric and melodic electronic music, so it had a big impact on my music taste.

Is it even possible to argue about musical tastes?

Like in general with taste, I believe there is no such thing as the „right“ music genre. Everything what matters is that the song is triggering emotions in that certain moment for that certain person – there is no point in arguing about what’s best. There is just a single exception: German Schlager

Which track would run when you moved into your boxing match?

Basically anything from The Prodigy!

What was the worst job you ever had?

Probably my first job, sorting electronic rubbish in a media store

Describes your sound to someone who has never heard it before.

Melodic Atmospheric Deep House

Do you have any good tour stories from clubs or festivals?

I can really recommend the Feel Festival. It’s such a perfect location with amazing people, music and art galleries, I definitely had some of my happiest moments in life at this place. I could write a book about how great it is!

What would you do if you weren’t a musician?

Probably something camera-related

Which style of music should have the most followers? And why?

There is always a reason why a music genre is more popular than another. I think it’s interesting to watch the development of the industry and be open-minded for surprises. On the one hand, I wish that electronic music like mine had more general attention but on the other hand, I like it to be in a subgenre and not mainstream.

What is the most important musical equipment invention of all time – and why?

I couldn’t decide between guitar and piano first, and even though I am a piano lover I would say guitar. The big advantage is that you can take it anywhere, I think that’s why It became so important for the music culture.
